Desktop Wallpapers, Screensavers and Ficathon Prompts

Whenever I'm writing a ficathon story, I switch the desktop wallpapers and screensaver images on all my computers, both work and home, to relate to the new story. I like to imagine that this keeps some gear far back in my brain clicking on that task while I'm accomplishing other things.

For example, for last year's [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest, I used Google image search to stock up on images of Tuscany to nudge along that Renaissance Florence story for Batdina's prompt. For this spring's rarewomen, I found a recent screenshot of Claire Rankin and a teenager in some horror movie, and manipulated it into a rough representation of Fleur and her daughter to address FalconHorus's prompt. This summer, for this year's FKFicFest, it's Toronto.

What, if anything, do you like to do to contextualize your works-in-progress?
