Finding more new places to write



Its quite well known that I love finding new places to write, and it’s probably quite obvious that I have a love for water also.

For the last 10 days I have been expeditions around Hungary and it has had its highs and it’s lows but I did it, I’ve reached the last day, and what I’ve found whilst traveling not around Hungary is, for a land locked country, a lot of water. Fountains, water displays and even a full grown lake, (one of the biggest in Europe).

Ive become aware that water inspires me like nothing else. I find something so relaxing and so carefree about water, that I find it’s easy to write by. We were told we had to keep a journal as we traveled around the country, something I find rather difficult to do, I write fiction what more do you want me to say! I have attempted to keep up with my journal but a scene or two have been peeking through and a whole lot of inspiration has been brewing to write when I return to the UK.

Whilst here, I’ve read 3 books, Grand and Humble (Brent Hartinger), Angel Kermony and Sydney’s Spaceship (Jo Banks). I plan to read Paper Towns (John Green) on the flight home, and hopefully 3 Truths and a Lie (Brent Hartinger) as well. Each of these have helped with the inspiration of course. I unfortunately managed to break my kindle around day 5 but, I fought on reading them on the kindle app!

This photo was taken on the island between Buda and Pest, Margitsziget, where there is a regular fountain show with music and very talented water! I think I’ve decided this is my favourite place in Hungary, and definitely my favourite place to write.

Find Somewhere New to Write Every Now and Again

2015-08-12 17.23.10

I am a firm believer that getting up and moving can change how you write. I have a preference, when I’m switching up where I’m writing I will tend to go for outside.

Of course I have been known to go and get a Chocolate Crème and sit in Starbucks with my laptop. But outside is where I truly get inspired. I was lucky for it to happen twice whilst I was away this week. We went to the South of England and visited some coastal towns; one of which was the Gay Capital of Britain, Brighton. It was beyond words. There was just something in the air that gave us all a sense of belonging, of acceptance.

I worked on my Days of Drabbles, which should hopefully come out later this year. I was banned from creating new characters because of my 11+ WIPs. but it still happened (more on that in another post).

But the point of this post is; shake it up a bit, go find some place new, take your notepad and a pen (because nothing is better than WRITING in a notepad WITH a pen), don’t care about the mistakes, don’t care about the handwriting. Be inspired.
