This is Dr Tanya’s third outing of a proposed four. You can add your own thoughts here
What are some unusual or out of the way sources of inspiration that get you writing? What unusual places, things or events inspire you to write ?
Ah, it depends what you’d call ‘unusual’.
I am an avid people watcher, or I was before Covid hit and we stopped having so many field trips for over a year.
People these days fall into two categories, those who wear masks and socially distance, and those who don’t. So easy to spot the visitor as they are nearly always in the second.
Animals and birds also amuse me and provide thought for blogger fodder, as are diets, good, bad, success or failure!
Observations in the park or garden can provide inspiration, and at the moment our roses are doing splendidly.
Unusual places though……….. hm.
At school, I used to write some of my better poetry in the loo. I always had a pencil in my pocket and could write on the toilet paper which was that shiny hard stuff, not soft tissue LOL
I’ve had inspiration in bed at night and now keep a pad and pencil in my bedside drawer.
