I’m at Writer UnBoxed today, talking about how character images inspire us and improve the writing process. There’s a lot of interesting science for why we are motivated by what we see . . . as writers, and as readers. It’s the reason why Pinterest and Instagram accounts are so darn popular. Come on over and share your stories on what visually inspires you. I’d love to hear what catches your attention, and why. There’s also a few trade tricks for finding the right images to represent your characters.
Writer Unboxed is, in my opinion, the hands-down best site for writers on the internet, and I’m not alone in that thought. This site has received the Writers Digest 101 Best Websites For Writers award for ten years running, and was named a Best of Best in 2016. Writer Unboxed is also a community where writers, at different stages of their creative journey, come together and support each other. I’m so proud to call this group my writing family, and so blessed by their collective wisdom, and generous sharing of talent. At the head of the family is the founder, Therese Walsh, aka Mama T. She is Writer Unboxed. And her big, gorgeous heart is the reason why this community continues to thrive, growing over 5K strong on Facebook.
