- Creativity has always been tied up with inspiration, especially for writers.
- One percent of writers’ inspiration can get the words flowing.
- The good news is, writers can actually seek inspiration in virtually everything, including beautiful places.
- From the fairy tale like castles to charming cobbled streets, clean beaches, and rocky terrain, writers who need inspiration can always find it all around the world.
Serious writers need not be inspired to write. Sure, writers can roll up their sleeves and get down to business even without the amateurish notion of Jovian “inspiration” because, writing, like innovation, is “one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
The only difference is that for writers, one percent inspiration makes a world of difference. Like Edison’s primal one percent jolt from the Gods, the inspiration for writers is like a supernatural presence that lets the words flow.
Unlike Edison’s jolt, writers can actively seek the inspiration they need. From the books they read to the music they listen to, writers can feel inspired in almost everything around them. For some, this can be in the form of meditation or scenic views.
Inspiring Places for Writers
For those who need inspiration from the natural world or beautiful and peaceful places, here are some ideal options to check out.
The homes of ancient civilizations are always full of great stories. If you are a writer on the hunt for a great place of historical conflict, then look no further than the last divided city in the world – Nicosia, Cyprus in the Middle East.
Cyprus not only hosts a civilization influenced by differing Eastern Mediterranean’s. It is also the home of Paphos – an entire district considered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and Khirokitia – one of the most important and best-preserved prehistoric sites of the Eastern Mediterranean.
With the endless view of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus also offers the cleanest beaches to soothe the mind and calm the nerves. If this doesn’t work, then you can check out Cyprus’ famed halloumi cheese or walk through the old towns. If this doesn’t take you on a whirlwind journey to finding your creative self, then nothing will.
Clovelly, Devon, England
For writers in a slump, traveling back in time may be a pleasant experience. Or, you can settle for a time warp of sorts as an alternative.
Devon’s prettiest village, Clovelly, offers an 1800-ish view: cobbled streets, whitewashed cottages, and a picturesque harbor. It has the steep cobbled main street with the tiny side lanes and alleyways of old, you can almost see donkeys and sleds.
Since motor vehicles are not allowed in Clovelly, you can have all the peace you want as you walk around and forge a connection with nature – while searching for the elusive words, that is.
According to reports, inspiration also lurks in one…
