We're all going on a summer holiday ......

Feel free to sing along if you feel the need! Many of you will be jetting off on your summer holidays soon and some of you will have already arrived at your destination, or maybe you're having a staycation. Whatever you're up to over the summer months, don't forget to pack your notebook, pen and camera. No matter where you are going there will almost certainly be a writing opportunity to be had. It doesn't matter where your destination is or the journey - what matters is what you note down and take photos of. Even the most mundane of details can be important when you get home and start writing.

Okay, so maybe the place you're staying in has been written about to death before, but while you're staying there you are the mini expert. You are the person experiencing where you are, and that gives you a unique point of view. No-one can write about where you are better than you can. Writing in a different place can do wonders for your creativity too.

Happy holidays and happy writing

  1. Don't forget that your foreign travels can give you some great settings for short stories or pocket novels too...

  2. This is true, Sally! Mind you I've never been abroad and don't own a passport ;0) so I'm afraid that my writing will be, for the moment, confined to our own fair Isle shores!
