A Picture Can Inspire 1000 words – Paris in Spring

Paris in Spring is a stunning place full of vibrance and colour.

It’s just warm enough to sit in the park and write … and watch … and immerse.

Writing in the Square de l’Aspirant Dunand. The gardens are a tribute to Lebanese painter and poet Khalil Gibran.

So much of the old and the new. There are still so many of the buildings and the laneways that would have been around in 1942 when Ruben was brought to Le grande mosquée de paris to escape the soldiers.

The old and the blue

Just one sight, one image conjures up so many things for me … so much imagined about what life would have been like back then.

How even the saddest hearts might have been affected by Paris in Spring.

How does weather and setting affect your writing mood?

Feel free to share.

Happy writing 🙂


p.s. Just about to hit 20,000 words. So much to write about, so much inspiration 🙂

  1. I struggle to write well when I’m locked in a room with just four walls. I do much better with big windows that let in the outside, especially if there is sunshine, though sometimes a good storm is just as inspiring. I live on the Oregon Coast with some of the wildest weather imaginable. So inspiring for me, not just the weather, but the ocean, the mountains a mile from me, the trees, the sun and the mist. It’s amazing here. Can’t wait for summer though, when I can write outside.

  2. If you ever want to come to the Oregon Coast, I’ll be happy to host you. We have some of the best storms ever. But I’d just love to share ideas back and forth.
