Hooked on Pinterest - the discovery has recently been made and the unlimited reach and variety of the web has drawn me in! Boards – public AND secret? Followers and following. Unlimited DIY ideas, crafts, recipes. Oh and animals - lots of smiles and 'awe's as I scroll through pictures pinned by others. Taking precedence are cats – from a magnificent Ligar (cross between a lion and tigress) to Norwegian Forest cats. Noble and stunning horses are also finding their way onto my boards. All things books, and oh, what a great place to line up those unattainable celebrity crushes! Both current day and from long ago teenage angst. For example James Drury – TheVirginian from the early ‘70’s..such a crush I had on that cowboy! Anyone else remember that western? Today’s equivalent is Jon Hamm….apparently a tall dark, brooding, and handsome theme still runs through my veins!
Not to mention being able to gather all things Star Trek and Tolkien. It’s like having a library and craft room all in one tiny but unlimited space – my computer. With the beauty of not having to dust anything! However the question is – how will this benefit my pursuit of writing and is there room for Jamie Tremain amidst the boards. Pinterest is fast becoming another popular social media and I believe I can see some benefits – networking with other authors and writers for one. How neat to have a spot to gather, and organize, books related to this wonderful community of writers.
Tomorrow is a planned Jamie Tremain day as I trek off to spend it with Pam in Oakville – she has promised a lunch at Stoney’s – if we can get in the door! Then we need to work on our collaborative offering for the Scene of the Crime short story contest – due next month. How to merge two different endings into one tale – there’s a challenge. Lots of coffee please!
Pam will have another interview to post by month’s end – its sure to be a good read. Make sure you keep checking back so as not to miss it! And feel free to join me on Pinterest – who knows what ideas I’ll be able to ‘pin’ from you!
