This week I rode the train to visit my brother. My schedule lately has been pretty hectic, and I haven’t had much time to sit and relax. When the opportunity to take a break presented itself, I jumped on board. The first two hour train ride was extremely relaxing, and I saw lovely landscapes along the way. Switching trains was a little overwhelming; the train station where I swapped is a hub for several different lines. But with the help of a friendly random passerby, I found the train I was supposed to be on, and made my way safely to my brother’s house. We didn’t do anything particularly special, but it was wonderful to visit, and the change of scenery inspired some writing. Today I head home (as of writing this post I am still at his house), and I take my inspiration with me. It’s funny, but even the smallest change of pace can stir the imaginative writer in me. I wrote an entire chapter while everyone else here was sleeping yesterday morning. I am happy to report that Fayling is roughly half done, and I am aiming at a summer release.
So my point today (if I really have one) is to encourage you to take a trip, even if it is only for the day. You never know when some tiny little change is going to inspire you. Life is so full of possibility, isn’t it?
Anyway, have a great weekend, and happy writing!
