Looking For Writing Inspiration Abroad

*Collaborative Post

Writers know the continual difficulty of finding inspiration, thinking of new avenues for their work, and breaking through the usual creative blocks. To get through this, some alternate methods of success might be the best way forward. One of the best and most permanent methods of inspiration is heading abroad. Sometimes, you need to head outside of the box to think outside of the box.

Booking your plane tickets and planning the journey can be a great start, but if you’re not sure of how to find inspiration while there, you can often slip into recreation, simply drinking mojitos from morning to night and never really fulfilling the purpose of your original plan.

Consider the following simple methods of finding writing inspiration abroad for the best chances.

Preparing to bring a new arrival home from hospital is an important task and one area I have been thinking about is something that will help to make Jake feel included and entertained whilst I am nursing his baby brother; a nursing box.
