I love using Pinterest as writing inspiration, and so do many other authors and writers. In fact, I even had Erica Cameron on the blog to talk about how she uses Pinterest in conjunction with other note-taking services. Here are a few Pinterest boards I love for writspiration, but if you’ve got one not on this list, make sure to comment it below and I’ll add it!
Pinterest Boards for Writers
The above is a great Pinterest board for creating fantasy characters and worlds. It also occasionally shares a dialogue prompt. Click the image to go to the board.
This one leans more towards contemporary and contemporary romance-type character inspiration, but occasionally has a fantasy twist.
Whether your heroine is loud or quiet, meek or brash, this board has her on it.
Between the two Eri(c/k)as that I follow on Pinterest, I get the inspiration for the majority of my character’s faces. I love that these boards have people from all walks of life, and it’s not just their appearances but rather their stories that make an appearance on their boards.
This one is actually one of Erica Cameron’s boards. It tends to go through shifts of fantasy or real life or diverse or historical, so it’s a great all around board.
This board focuses mainly on quotes and words, and it can be great for ideas on adding to a major emotional scene or even just making you think twice about the way you phrase something. If you like this one, Erica Cameron also has a quotes board that can be pretty inspiring.
Especially if you’re writing fantasy, concept art can be a very important aspect of world-building and visualization. This is one of my favorite boards for that. Video game concept art is also a great way to start looking at scifi and fantasy settings.
I love this board for landscapes in any genre, and it specializes in ruins and cities.
This is more a writing support board more than anything else, but it links to some great motivational and educational posts. It also does quite a lot of prompts and dialogue checks.
Another writing support board, because writing is hard, but you can do it.

With that in mind, let’s continue trucking through Nano! (or if you’re not doing Nano, any WiP!)
