Writing Friday: Photos of Characters

Last week you all read my post about how to edit.

Today, I will tell you a little about how I envision my characters (and where I get photos for them) from my soon-to-be published novel, Swept to Sea.

Well, first of all I wanted to acknowledge that I have already done a couple of posts in general about my characters and included pictures, but I want to just share some photos of the whole "cast".

I love Pinterest. And it helps me come up with new story ideas, and photos to fit my stories. You can check out my Pinterest page here to see all of my boards, including ones for my characters and current novels.

Today, I'll be sharing some photos of my characters,and then guide you to some places to find pictures of your own. (if you write!) ;)

First of all, here is Lady Eden Trenton, the heroine of Swept to Sea.






Next, here is my hero, Captain Caspian Archer.
Here is Caspian's son, Reed Archer.

And next, here is Lady Ivy Shaw.
Here is Gage Thompson
Here is Lady Aimee Dawson
And, finally, here is Matthew Emery.
(He would most likely not have a noose around his neck...but this looks like him.)


So, there is my cast of characters. I found most of them on trusty old Pinterest. (By the way, for those of you looking for photos of your own characters, check out this AWESOME Pinterest account that organizes tons of great pictures into categories like "blonde hair" and stuff like that. Super helpful.

Anyway, be sure to also check out my Pinterest board for Swept to Sea, and my Pinterest board for Carried Home.

What did you think of today's post? Do you like to see photos of characters or would you rather imagine them on their own? Do they look like you'd imagine from what you've heard of Swept to Sea already?

Thanks for stopping by!

    I really liked this post and seeing how you envision your characters. I feel like the pictures match the descriptions you've given of them.

  4. Cool, interesting place to find pictures for characters. It can be fun to imagine them yourself but it's always interesting to see how the author views them as well.
