Girls Write Out
Thursday, October 18, 2012
I admit it. I'm hooked. On Pinterest. Please tell me I'm not the only one!  I can spend hours looking at the latest fashions, beautiful scenery and, of course, recipes. My daughter kept telling me about it and I told her I couldn't afford to get absorbed by one more website. I guess you can see who won.

I see many writers on there. They "pin" characters, old period clothes, unusual settings. Any and all of those could spark their imaginations for futures scenes tucked inside delicious novels.

Sometimes it's fun just to escape for a while and enjoy the scenery or find a new recipe. I confess that I absolutely love it. Yesterday was rainy and cold. A perfect combination for hot chocolate and a visit to Pinterest. So I spent the afternoon browsing through Paris, Switzerland, Greece, and assorted main dishes, clicking here and there and tucking away a few morsels in my own files for future use. It's not only a wealth of information, it's just plain fun.

So how about you. Are you hooked?

Diann,
I'm hooked! It's where I go to dream. And find future characters, settings, and how to bring them to life. Once in awhile I try out one of the recipes on my family - successfully, so far. I usually browse with a cup of decaf coffee in hand. With pumpkin spice creamer, now that it's autumn. It's a great way to unwind and let my mind wander creatively.

I'm not hooked. LOL I don't get the draw at all. I've tried but I'm quickly bored and wonder what all the hoopla is about.

But I'm glad it brings you pleasure!

I dropped my Pinterest account. I listened to Suz Warren at the conference, and she admonishes 2 social media sites and your blog. Since my biggest followings are Twitter and Facebook, I chose those. I'm still on Google+ but only to post announcements about Novel Rocket. I get the most out of those.

I found Pinterest was a time waster for me. And that's easy to do. ;o)

I'm definitely hooked, but I use it more for my crafting than for my writing. It's my downtime pleasure. When my work is done, I award myself with a limited amount of time, otherwise I'd get sucked in for hours.

I do like Pinterest. I save off things there that I want to get back to. I also enjoy just looking at the beautiful things. I get decorating ideas and craft ideas I'm saving for future grands. I don't go there often, but when I go I do spend a bit of time catching up. :-) I am particularly a fan of scenery and houses and of course anything Doctor Who. LOL

I sure love that picture! I've never visited pinterest, but then, I barely Facebook, and I still haven't figured out how to twitter.

Yep, love it! :)

So completely hooked. I held out as long as I could, but my friends insisted I'd love it. They were right. I spend most of my time on there laughing at the humor page and pinning foods onto my, "Straight to my thighs" board.
