Travel as Inspiration in Fiction Writing

by Pamela Hegarty

Whether you’re travelling to new worlds in body or spirit this summer, the journey can only enrich your writing.  Greece is next on my list of places to see, for research, of course, into their unparalleled storytelling tradition and a first-hand experience of the Acropolis, which is featured in the opening chapters of my next book.

Mark Twain, one of my favorite authors, has this to offer.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the
things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the
bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
