Where in the World do you Write?

I can write anywhere

Over the years of travel I’ve always made time for writing.

At school I wrote, through jobs – I wrote. Then I started writing for myself – there’s much more motivation there!

Here are some of the places where I’ve made camp and tapped away (‘thumped’ Noel says) on the keyboard.

Isla de Cocos - note the wet trousers (from knee down) we were anchored out and dinghied in avoiding the sharks nipping at our feet!

In a TSR (Travelling Stock Reserve) while trekking with our 5 adopted horses - just Noel, me, our 5 boys and the occasional bit of writing!

One of my favourite pictures - sailing (and writing) in my slippers along the NSW coast. On board our first boat Mariah II

Renovating a 1920 Dutch barge in France. In the background was welding, grinding, hammering etc - it was bedlam and very hard to work/live in the same room as the renovations!

On board Mariah II again, traversing The Great Loop - a year long adventure through the USA and Canada that I still miss today!

In NSW, Australia - we are dismantling an American Barn - so part of the way through the process.... I tap away!

  2. You’ve been some amazing places. I would agree that just getting out and about is an amazing way to invigorate one’s love for writing because there’s so much to stimulate the senses (compared to sitting at the kitchen table).

  3. Wow, such awesome pictures and places to write! It must be exciting to be able to write in so many different places and even on boats. It’s hard for me to write, even though I’ve always been a writer, I can write with background noise and chaos but not in places that I don’t feel comfortable. Libraries can be good but it takes me a while to get acclimated, and parks are the same but I have done well in both kinds of places. I prefer to write at home or in someone else’s house that I feel comfortable in.
