A Place to Write…Or Just Be…

Imagine if you could, the perfect place to write or just be if money was no concern. I could easily get to my old stand-byes, near stately pine trees in Maine, or majestic mountains in New Hampshire. But, I’d want to go further away, maybe Europe, and definitely Portofino, Italy, a place with an extraordinary view!  I spent a day there with family back in the 1970s when we lived in Milan, Italy. I remember every detail of that picture perfect day on the harbor. Fishing boats, elaborate cruisers, even the Onassis yacht, the green blue sea, the lush green trees, the flowering plants, and the small trattoria where we ate seafood and bought paintings from a young artist.  I’d go back there in a heart beat for a day, a week, even a month.  A dream like that for all my senses is an inspiration to write or just be, pretty much anywhere. Where is your place to write or just be if money was no concern?

About C.E.Robinson

I'm a retired nurse practitioner as of 2013, and a full time novel writer since then. I added blogger in 2014 and started the blog site Before Sundown remember what made you smile. From the beginning, I was overjoyed that Before Sundown was honored with awards, and blog tours. It kept me connected to dedicated worldwide followers, and I'm grateful for their likes, comments and reblogs of my posts. I write posts to support fellow bloggers, friends and family--their books, interests, professions and travels. Overtime, I've added excerpts from WIPs as a co-author, and a final version (2020) of the first three pages of my book, Sunset Inn - secrets come back again. Next, on to publishing. The collections of sunsets/sunrises on the Welcome page came from blogger friends all over the world. I wanted visitors to remember what made them smile Before Sundown. What better way than to offer them breathtaking sunsets or sunrises? http://cerobinsonauthor.com

    I’m afraid if the place was too nice like this, I’d want to spend my time staring out the window, or out and about, not writing. (I can’t even imagine being somewhere just to write. I don’t let myself.)


    • I do agree! In truth, I sit at a computer, blinds down, with one abstract painting in view. It’s one of a triptych a painter in Lindos, Rhodes painted for me. I have the memory of that Place to Write without the actual beautiful scenery distraction.
