And the Oscar Goes To...

If you want to know which actors I was picturing making out while I wrote Can't Stand the Heat, check out my guest post over on My Book The Movie! As I believe I've mentioned here before, casting my characters is one of my all-time favorite procrastination techniques. And not just because of the man candy, either. It really does help to focus my internal image of the character, gives me a sense of their movement and physicality, and serves as an inspiring zing of recognition when I go up to my office in the morning, all sleepy and not yet properly caffeinated, and boot up my laptop to find pictures of Adam, Miranda, and the gang staring up at me.

In the past, I've used models, soap stars, athletes, and of course, actors to help me picture my characters. Does anyone else do this? What are your favorites sites to browse through for visual inspiration?


I think Dominic and Amy are perfect for Adam and Miranda. It's who I would have picked too!
