Walking with Inspiration

Earlier, I blogged telling you tall tales of how I was going to spend the afternoon walking around the lovely place where I live and see what inspiration struck me with. I planned to write, and walk, and indulge myself in the luxury sights that are contained at harbourside Cornwall. 
And you know what? I did!

Taking routes I’d never known before it was such a pleasant experience to walk without haste in an environment I was unaccustomed to, yet everything around me was still so familiar. It was my own little adventure.
I had quiet.
I had solitude.
I had grace.

I was so inspired I wrote a little something:


The house was languid and fine, with a little bit of wear and tear around the edges. It was a large house, with black iron railings and an archway standing boldly before the pathway to the garden. A balcony, on the second floor of the house which passers-by could look upon if they so desired from the boundaries of the outside. It was a grand house, one that distinctly belonged to another time. It was old, with a great brass knocker on the door with chipped paint, yet it still resonated beauty with its old age.


Inspiration struck me with joy when I was avidly scribbling this down in my notebook.
Writers see. Writers see, and then they write. And that is what I wrote. And I’m embarrassed to admit I’m a little proud. 

Who knows? Maybe one day that little passage will spark a novel, one day.

Have you ever been inspired by a certain place/landscape? I’d love to hear about it.

  1. What a great post! I hope one day I find that “place” where I can go to every day to write! Very inspiring and that passage is really nice!

      1. You’re very welcome! And thanks so much, and also thank you for following my blog! I really appreciate it! You have a lovely blog!

  2. Be proud of what you wrote, it’s absolutely lovely. As a mother of four, writing often takes a backseat. Well either that, or I’m up most of the night writing down all the mumbo jumbo and characters in my head.

    Oh how great it would be to find a lovely place to become inspired and write. Bravo to you for finding such a place. And what you created is lovely.

    1. Thank you so much. It means a lot to me to get my writing out there. I can’t imagine how busy it can be trying to bring up four children and still having the time to write! But the fact that you do is very inspiring. I think we can all find admiration in other writers.
