Have you ever been somewhere where you knew you had to write a story surrounding that location?
I’ve traveled A TON. But only certain places have really caught me, and left an emotional imprint forever in my memory… where if I wanted, I could go right back to that moment and draw from the emotion and rewrite it.
Some of those places include: Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, The Cobblestone streets of Latvia, seeing the Bolshoi ballerinas in Russia, and Stonehenge, England.

Location matters. It can affect the mood of a story, a character’s personality traits, the basis for a plot, and the whole vibe of your book. (To name a few)
So what I’m curious to know is: Has a certain place inspired a book you’ve written? Is there a certain place you’ve written or read about that you’re dying to visit? And what is it about different locations that affect us so? Where there seems to be a bit of extra magic in the air that speak to our inner writer?
I’d love to know your thoughts.
Red. Head. Out. :D
