My Brand-New Inspiration Board

Okay, I've never done anything like this before, but I just sat down and created my very first Inspiration Board. It's filled with scenic photographs and character models for my work in progress, a coming-of-age novel called ESSENCE. Here's a very grainy and not-super-pretty iPhone photo of it:

Wow, I'm actually super stoked about this. I'm an incredibly visual person, so I wonder why it took me so long to realize my photographs and maps needed a better home than my laptop?

Have any of you ever made Inspiration Boards before? And what else do you do to keep yourselves inspired during the novel writing process??
