Pinterest – Writing a Novel on it.
Recently this private English tutor started to outline a novel, Seeing Unseen, on Pinterest.
Pinterest is a fun way to engage with social media by pinning images, with or without captions, on boards. Pick any subject you like and build up your images. Images can be taken from the boards of other Pinterest users, from your own photographs or from the internet itself.
This week I have pinned the sixth pin to my ‘Seeing Unseen’ board.
Please jump over there to take a look: Seeing Unseen
Seth, a 50+ teacher, finds himself in love with a girl 40 years his junior. The inevitable road to ruin lies ahead but what of the journey itself? As Ernest Hemmingway said: ‘It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.’
I used a pin showing the novelist Ray Bradbury and included the following caption:
‘Thinking about the novel was as far as it progressed. What was it about the actual starting that proved so difficult?” The opening sentence from “Seeing Unseen”.
The next two pins set the scene. They give information about Seth, as both a person and a teacher working in the difficult British education system. The latest pin, injecting a little humour in to the proceedings, shows the toll the academic year takes on teachers.
The scene is now set to advance with the text itself.
Tune in next week for the latest exciting episode of Seeing Unseen, a novel that balances precariously somewhere in between Lolita and 50 Shades of Grey. . .
