Pinspiration!

Burning Bush 2

online literary magazineburning bush

Inspiration comes in many forms and I have just had a piece of work published that started life when I stuck a pin in a map of the world. 🙂

Earlier in the year, our writing group tried an exercise where each member researched the location they arrived at and used this to produce a piece of work for the next meeting.

My pin landed in Cardigan Bay, Wales, and I ended up immersed in mythology and folklore based on a Welsh version of Atlantis, from which I wrote a haibun (a combination of prose and haiku)

I recommend this exercise if you are stuck for a topic to write about or are experiencing a bout of writers’ block.

Anyway, here is the link if you want to have a look. It’s on page 32. Burning Bush 2, Issue 5.
