Hey Nerdy Peeps! I’ve been writing all kinds of goodies and I can’t wait to share them with you, but first I need to share the ways I use Pinterest to help. I have four ways I want to share with you and then I have to get back to writing.
4 Ways I Use Pinterest for Writing Ideas
Book suggestions –
There are so many books out there that can help you become a better writer. I have three on my wish list that I need to order thanks to a Pinterest suggestion.

Now, these pop up everywhere on Pinterest. I mean everywhere. There are tips on plot twists and character traits. Tips on beating writer’s block. Things on what not to do when writing. How to visualize the perfect setting. I mean it’s amazing how many tips you can get just from searching “writing tips” on Pinterest.
This is the biggest help I have used. I am horrible with schedules and organization, but Pinterest helps a lot. They have so many ideas and tips that I stay on schedule for all of my stories. Whether they be short stories for anthologies or longer novellas I am always on schedule with them.
These are some of my favorite tips and if you are writing something then I definitely would recommend these. I use Pinterest every day and I love all of the tips and tricks it offers for writing and everything else. You can follow me here!
