My perfect writing location

Describe what your dream writing space would look like.

I already own it. I come down here and walk around, dictating into my phone or just plotting and rehearsing dialogue, at all times of the year. This is Sharkham Point in the summer. It’s on the Southwest coast path, in Devon, which makes it a perfect place to stroll and dream, surrounded by nature.

Depending on the season, cows graze and the flora is always different. I see people I know and exchange a few words. Very often, seals might be sitting on the rocks in the bay. I’ve seen adders, rabbits, pheasants and birds of prey lurking around, plus there’s the sea and the sky, ever-changing. If I squint I can see ships moving up and down the English Channel, just like the ones I used to work on.

In places like these, how could I not be inspired to write about adventures in foreign places, whether they’re here or on another planet, hundreds of years from now?

When you get weather effects like this on the cliffs, it’s no wonder I’m inspired.

If I’m not there, I can often be found with a notebook and a coffee in my garden.

If all else fails, or it’s raining, then there’s always my study. I’m happy, just as long as there’s a mug of black coffee and some organised chaos.

Until next time.
