This morning I had the 6:30 am pleasure of filming a Ninjitsu combat video in the Japanese Gardens at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The air was crisp, cool and the morning light soft. As I pulled my ten ton camera case behind me, I saw visions of myself penning away my novel within the confines of the garden. There was a wide swinging bench shaded by tall trees. Inside the bamboo forest we discovered a hidden alcove with a small stream trickling through. It was so enticing! I wanted to drop all my equipment, whip out a piece of paper, and start writing my master piece. Perhaps later this week, I'll spend an early morning in the gardens. And this time....scratch...scratch....I won't forget the OFF.
Have you ever come across a place that just literally moved you to write?
