Do you set up photo folders, Pinterest Boards or other ways to use photos to help you establish a character?
Use photos to help establish character: physical description, clothing, historical time period. Stay fresh with interesting descriptions.

Introduction

Storyteller, writing teacher, Queen of Revisions, and founder of Mims House publisher, Darcy Pattison has recently been motivated by zombies (which helped her meet a goal of running a 5K) and chocolate (which keeps her marriage young). Always active, before her tenth birthday, she (almost) climbed the Continental Divide, turning back at the last 20 yards because it was too steep and great climbing shoes hadn’t been invented yet. This year, she biked in Poland and hiked the Rockies. On her bucket list is kayaking the Napali Coast, eating curry in Bombay, and catching a glimpse of a puma in South America.

In 1999, she created the Novel Revision Retreat, which she has taught across the nation. Passionate authors at those retreats taught Darcy the power of story, and how an author’s passion can carry a career. Author of fiction and nonfiction for children and adults, her bio was twice rejected by Wikipedia because she failed to meet their standards of “Notability.” Let it be noted, however, that the bio was resubmitted, this time with proper references as to her Notability--and it was accepted! Read it here. Meanwhile, if you need a full bibliography, you can download a printable one here and see an online list ofher books here.
