I recently shared my Nairobi Vision Board from Pinterest. Here’s the vision board for my current project, set in Vienna. As I progress with this novel, I’ll share more information. In the meantime, the vision board offers up some hints.
A while back, I shared a post about some of the inspiration behind Nairobi Ndoto. I also shared a post about my writing process. The two come together in this post. Here’s a peek at the Pinterest Vision Board I had for Nairobi Ndoto.
I thought I would share a little bit about where and how I work. First off, I’m a plotter. I can’t write without an outline…and I’ve found that I also need something bigger and more visual than an outline. I need a large, foldable (so I can carry it with me) crime board/timeline.
Of course, there’s a lot that goes into the outline and timeline. I have various notebooks filled with ideas, research, and random thoughts.
Finally, when I’m ready and fully prepared, I write. Here’s my home office. This is where the magic happens. By magic, I mean writing, rewriting, revising, editing, and sometimes staring at the computer screen because the words aren’t coming out so easily on a given day.
And now, back to writing!
