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!

  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.

    • 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.
