Back to Work
Isn’t it funny how time seems to speed up when we we’re on holiday? The past three weeks have zoomed by and now it’s back to work. I used to dread this time and always wished for the holidays to be longer but now I’m back to writing full time, I am excited to get started and am buzzing with ideas.
My new favourite place to visit whenever I return to the UK has to be the beautiful historic town of Malvern in Worcestershire. Not only because my brother lives there, as well as my dear writing friend, Lynne but also because I feel a sense of serenity and peace in this small slice of heaven. Mind you, you need to be fit as it is built on a steep incline: or, like me, you could pretend athleticism and make the most of photo opportunities every few steps to hide the fact that the legs ache and the heart won’t pump any faster. This idyllic place provides the setting for my latest WIP. I wonder if my characters will fare better than I did, without an internal combustion engine.
As well as admiring historical buildings and their hidden secrets, I am often inspired by nature and enjoy forest walks. What better way to stir the human senses than to breathe in woody aromas and to admire the array of colour that fills the environment. But beware, you may well bump into a stray animal along the way.
Has your holiday left you feeling inspired and eager to write?
