A couple of days ago I got really fed up of having no room for the images for my Mary Street competition entry; at the end of every writing session they had to go back in the folder, and that cut the connection with the story and the characters. Plus there were numerous bits of paper slipping off my desk!
It's never been a problem with my historical based stories as I know the plots and the important images are set in my mind. But this competition entry is being created as I write, so I need the constant contact with the people I've imagined and the plot ideas in this story.
So yesterday I bought a large cork board-self-healing- and it has a surround with corner fittings so you can screw it into the wall (not that I'll be doing that with it).

My images are now pinned and working on my brain,
and everything is starting to come together...
I was quite surprised how quickly I responded to having the images in one place, as every time I see the board my sub-conscious gets a jolt.
It also acts as a reminder I should be writing rather than chatting on Facebook!
Perhaps it will also help me sort out a suitable title.
I will definitely be using it for my other stories from
Do you use an image board, or do you just blu tack your pictures on the wall?
