I was kind of half awake this morning when this idea came to me and I decided to check it out with you. I was thinking it would be cool if occasionally I could include a link within the story to an image that would illustrate something I am writing about at that particular moment. For example, when I post Chapter 1 tomorrow, I’ll be talking about a farmhouse in Vermont and a lake with a big rock you can dive off of.
I was thinking it would be cool if I could link to a picture of an actual farmhouse or lake. But since I don’t have any really good pictures like that, I was thinking it would be even cooler if you got involved and sent me some pictures if you have one you think fits really good. What do you think?
I don’t want anyone to spend a lot of time on this because I may not end up using any images you send in. But if you’re reading the story and a light goes off in your head and you say to yourself something like, “Boy, do I have the perfect picture of that,” well, feel free to send it along. I’ll give you credit for it if you want. Or not if you don’t. And, like I said, I’m not making any promises. But it seemed kind of cool when the idea came to me.
By the way, I’m not sure whether this would work with the actual characters in my story, at least the main ones. I kind of think I should leave them mostly mysterious so each of you can fill in the details for yourself. But if you have a really strong opinion about what a particular character looks like, feel free to send me a picture. Just make sure it’s decent and fit for posting 🙂
If you think this is the dumbest thing you ever heard of, feel free to suggest some medication you think I should be on 🙂
