A sure fire way to get the inspiration you need – just go there!
For months, I had been trying to sort out the ending to my new novel. Forcing it was clearly not working. It needed to come naturally, in its own time, at its own pace. What I needed was a change of scenery and though the Isle of Mull is only a memory in my novel, it has proven to be worth all the words in the world to me.
Staying in a remote area on the mainland this past week, with the sea in my garden and the highlands wrapped around me, I was able to soak in this magical place. Just across the water was the Isle of Mull and it was in my two day trips there by ferry that inspired my writing – the ending that I needed. Here are some of the photos I took on the west coast of Scotland and Isle of Mull. Indeed, sometimes words are not enough.
