I ended up doing some
house cleaning maintenance on my boards (my house should be so lucky) by sorting, rearranging and emphasizing certain pins--sounds like a yoga workout (I'd be thin as a rail if it was).
But by doing that, I thought about how to use Pinterest more effectively for promotion for my upcoming novel coming out at the end of June. I got more specific with my Pins by writing a little bit on each one about how it represents part of my novel. I have one Board dedicated to my present novel and one for my in-progress novel (haven't gotten as detailed on that one yet).
If I was going to make a motion picture of my novel, this would be my story board. Who would play the characters? What are some of the interesting elements in the story? Maybe include some food and things that a browser might be tantalized enough by to cause them to check out my book.
This post was
instigated by inspired by my WANA buddies for #wanafriday. Do a Wordle they said. What the @#&% is a Wordle, I yelled at the computer. Now I have to learn something else new!--when I'm in the middle of expecting company (and I have not given my house the attention given to my Pinterest boards) and have so many other problems? (my website is acting like a jumpy rabbit that I can never tell if my book page will be there or jump into oblivion the next time I try to fix something)
Well, long story short. Wordle is mixer. It mixes up words you input. The above picture is a wordle from my website blurb of my upcoming novel--you can decide if it is a good representation.
Not only did I do the Wordle, I had to figure out how to transfer it to this post. ($#&%$$) But after some
head banging checking in at Facebook where our Friday theme was posted, I got help from other WANAs who are more tech savvy. You use a Snipping Tool found in Windows 7 accessories. (of course, a scissor of sorts) Who knew I had a snipping tool?
The things you learn when forced to.
How much do your resist learning new things?
Did you know about Wordle?
Was I the only one?
Be sure and check out the other writers who are posting their Wordles. I will add their names and websites as they post.
