Day 2337 - A getaway to the south coast of NSW #authorlife

The NSW South Coast is my inspiration.

Bateman's Bay - could the day be any bluer?
For the last three days I have been at the NSW South Coast writing.  I finished my spin-off novelette on Monday and I started book eight in the Cheer Chick Charlie series yesterday.  

"Let's Do This!" is based at the beach and has a big oceanic theme.  So walking along the sand, smelling the ocean air, absorbing the beach vibe and being at one with the ocean is essential to ensure this story feels authentic.

Being the author and getting my head in the game

Reading previous books in the series is important to refresh my mind and find my inner Charlie
Being there as the sun rises is a perfect way to seize the day and capture the essence of the story

At first I was disappointed to see all the seaweed, then I realised I needed this seaweed for the opening paragraph.

To write a book I need to feel inspired.  Inspiration doesn't always find me in my day-to-day environment. So if it doesn't find me, then it's up to me to go and find it!

When you need to get something important done you do what you have to do.

So I took a leaf out of Charlie's book and I said "Let's Do This!"

Today the NSW South Coast is my inspiration.

What's inspiring you today?

  3. I love the South Coast. It's been way too long since we've gotten down there. My Dad and his wife own a holiday house down there so I think it's time to start planning our next trip. Your photos have inspired me!
