I sat atop a cliff, gazing at the beautiful beach before me. It was Mother Nature’s gift to mankind. The warm breeze danced across my face, as it enshrouded my body. Taking a deep breath, the scent of fresh, sea, air assaulted my nose. I was in heaven.
The calming, aqua sea glistened in the sunlight as the rays reflected off the surface. I smiled as contentment washed over me. This was my happy place.
I longed to take out my notepad, the heady concoction of nature beckoning the writing beast within. As I walked along the cliff top, ideas flooded my mind, the scenic location expanding my creativity.

I’d hate to think how dull my writing would be, had I not experience some form of inspiration. As a writer, it’s what motivates me to continue. Seeing this exquisitely radiant beach filled me with an overwhelming sense of joy. What I’m trying to say is, inspiration is all around us. It doesn’t have to be something remarkably unique, you just have to look at it in a new light.
So grab your pen and paper, dust off those walking shoes you’ve shamelessly hidden in the wardrobe, and take a stroll. You don’t have to go far, but I guarantee you’ll find something worthwhile.
