Visually speaking

I am a visual learner as opposed to being audial or kinesthetic. I like pictures and lack of clutter (though you’d never know it to see the top of my desk now).

When I write something that’s more than a short story, I need photos of what my hero and heroine look like so I can focus on that and try to really get inside their heads.

So for Max and Victoria, the hero and heroine of Better as a Memory, I searched and searched until I finally found them. I found Max first. It took me over a year to find Victoria despite her being right under my nose every Monday night at 9:00 p.m. Central time. Now their photos are posted over my monitor so I can see them as I write their story.

Do YOU use photos of your characters? Your locations? Anything else?

Here they are, by the way.

  1. You picked two awesome ones. For the shorts, I don’t really need pictures. For books, yes, pictures do help.
