Once upon a time, I cut out (with scissors!) photos of my characters, along with symbols that reminded me of them. (Track shoes, a broken heart, a winding road, musical notes.)
This process involved plenty of scotch tape and way too much printer ink. If I rethought my characters, I had to rip everything up and start over. 

But one day, I discovered Pinterest!  It's an online bulletin board where I can search photos, paste and drag them to "secret" boards only I can see, and delete the images as needed. I love this visual collage. It's fun to see how things change over the course of many revisions. Here is a board I created. (I changed it to a public board so you can see it!)
I also use Pinterest to keep track of my favorite middle grade books.  You can check it out here:
For me, Pinterest has definitely helped my writing.
Such a great tool!
