My name is Bridget Blackwood and I have a Pinterest addiction. I need it though!
I grew up watching fantasy movies like Legend and Willow. The Princess Bride is dear to my heart. My dad loved The Lord of the Rings and showed me the animated video for The Hobbit. It didn’t stop with the fantasy genre, I got a healthy dose of sci fi, action, and horror. Star Wars, Star Trek, Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, Universal Soldier, Aliens, Masters of the Universe, The Terminator and just about all the Stallone, Willis, Van Damme, and Schwarzenegger movies.
To this day I prefer the explosions and fantastic qualities of those genres. When I’m writing, I need visual inspiration to get my to better see where I want to go in the story. I also find new things to include and a lot of images that can’t help me but are too cool to not pin.
My Fantastical pin board is full of the images I cannot use now or maybe never but man are they great. Just a few examples are:
- A woman blowing away into red rose petals
- Warriors, both male and female
- Emotive pieces that hit you in the feels
- Very neat things done with fire
- A person levitating over a lake
Picture Perfect holds my stock photo examples, portraits, and some photo manipulations. Most of these could easily fit in the Fantastical board, for whatever reason I keep them separate. I didn’t claim to make sense.
Fancy Frocks – You never know when a Heroine will need a fabulous dress!
Inspiration? A question mark because I think I have an idea that works with the story brought on by these images but it isn’t for a while and who knows what might change.
