Inspiration vacation


Here I am in beautiful Inverloch, in the south of Victoria (between Phillip Island and Wilson’s Promontory) for a two week vacation. I’m swimming as much as the weather permits, taking lots of walks, and trying to get my writing mojo flowing.


It takes practice to balance being relaxed and being inspired. It’s easy to look at my surroundings and think ‘This is the perfect writing location – away from the hustle of the city and distractions of my every-day life’. It takes a little more effort to actually do the writing.


So now I look at these beautiful pictures, and remember the day that gifted me these experiences, and turn that emotion inwards to fuel the creativity needed to produce a story. That, and having a ‘to do’ list to keep me on track 🙂

I am a writer from Melbourne, Australia. I am currently working on two writing projects. The first is a contemporary gay novel about a man experiencing growth and change after the end of a relationship. The second is a collection of novellas following a private detective in Sacramento as she solves missing person cases with the help of her four spirit protectors. I also write poetry, short stories, plays and film scripts.
