Linda Goodnight here, on the topic of summer vacations. As a writer I use trips as both leisure and business, researching as I go. You just never know what little town, curvy road, or snippet of conversation will ignite a story idea. In May I took my first “across the pond” trip to Ireland. (I'm not a great photographer but you can see a few photos here.)
Now, I’m gearing up to take the family…somewhere. I keep thinking of that song, “Heads Carolina, Tails California” by Jo Dee Messina. We can’t decide, though we love mountains and haven’t seen any of the Appalachian chain. I’m thinking the Blue Ridge in N. Carolina. My husband wants to see Kentucky. As you might guess, we like remote, off the tourist track sites. And hopefully one of these will stir up some great new settings for future books!
Where are you going/did you go on vacation this year? Any suggestions for me as to scenic places to visit?
Writers, have you ever gotten a story idea from a vacation spot? Tell all!
