Authorly Distractions: Pinterest

Here we go again. I’m stuck. Again.

Yup, it’s that same WIP again. Sawyer’s story that was supposed to be filled with so much angst and heartache. Apparently, subconscious writer-me isn’t exactly down with that and so Naughty Pen has been getting all the words instead. For Sawyer, I haven’t written a thing beyond the angsty prologue (that did nothing for the story at all but sometimes you got to write 3K words to know it’s a terrible idea to start with a prologue) and that’s seven weeks and counting.

So what’s a writer to do?

Why, she goes on Pinterest, of course!

Distraction! Anything to remind her that she has better things to do than write! So she starts going through her Pinterest boards and organizing them by book. She makes pretty graphics so they’d all look uniform, and there’s even a board specifically for her Naughty Pen. No, she doesn’t say who it is but she has her steamy inspiration in there… for research.

I’ve had these boards forever but never got around to organizing them so they’ll look nice at first glance and now I have and I wonder what took me so long. I may even have to download the app for my phone even though I know it will be huge time-suck if I do.

After all, this girl’s gotta write.
