Among my inspirations for writing is lovely views.
Here are a few of the lovely views we had in beautiful Barbados…
We ate at the Atlantis Hotel near to Bathsheba on the East Cost of Barbados and I couldn’t resist taking this picture from one of the windows…looking out in this case onto the Atlantic Ocean.
I ate lunch here with my beautiful wife Jo and I had my favorite Caribbean cuisine Goat Curry – it was on the specials for the day.
How many words was I writing?
I had been writing around 2,000 words per day on most days on my latest detective novel. These words were written in-between swimming in the Caribbean sea, snorkeling, diving, eating out and of course having a few Banks Beers and Rum Punches.
But a novelist needs inspiration. So even though I was getting creative feed from the West Coast views and activities, a trip out across the island was needed.
We hired a car and visited some lovely places, including the famous Harrison Caves…what a great site that is. I certainly recommend this if you find yourself in Barbados…I would also recommend the Atlantis Hotel too…the food is great.
Another scene from the east cost side of the island…what a view.
I can say that after the day out exploring Barbados, I returned refreshed and raring to go and ready to write more words on my second novel.
Inspiration for writing is lovely views for me plus doing many other things. Getting out and actively stimulating the mind feeds it and helps mine to be creative.
I know Stephen King says to read, read and read, which is great advice too.
