With all these picture book challenges, I’ve been looking around for inspiration. Many, many of my Facebook friends use Pintrest, so I thought I’d check it out.
If you haven’t heard of Pintrest before, it’s basically an online notice board where you can find inspiring pictures and “pin” them on a board. The pictures are shared and you can follow others to see what inspires them. You can set up any boards you want to on topics that are of interest to you.
I haven’t been on there very much, but a couple of days ago, I started a board called “PB Inspiration”. This has pictures that could be used as story starters or prompts for picture books.
On the 12×12 in 12 board, someone shared this blog post: 3 ways to use Pintrest for Book Publicity. If you’re a writer, this may be useful, and I’m also posting it here to use for later!
