When it comes to writing inspiration, for me it doesn’t get much more beautiful than the ocean. Having lived on the coast all my life (specifically, a place called the Central Coast) I’ve always enjoyed taking time out to go for a walk near the ocean.
When I can’t find the words, a walk there clears my head; it inspires me. Even when I’m not looking, it can take me to a place that makes me want to write, whether the day is dark and stormy, the swell rough and fierce, or calm and crisp, with perfectly breaking waves falling softly to the sandy shore.
In the novels I’ve written, the sea has always featured. Granted, I’ve only written three, but the ocean is just such a big part of me and who I am; I couldn’t imagine not including it in what I write.
What about you? Is there something that inspires you regardless, a constant in your novels?
