Because I’m so keen on visuals and place in my writing, I tend to write with images nearby. Early on in writing Storm Season, I had this “mood board”… well, in this case a mood Powerpoint document. Because I am just that old school. I wanted to hold onto the feel of the story as I wrote. And admire Lena Headey and Liu Yifei and the bush. I carried a printout of this around in my back pack. It’s kind of scrunched now.
I have later character boards, but this is where I started.
