Writers’ Outing

Sue Johnson, Heather King and I visited Croome Court, a National Trust property in Worcestershire last Friday. Even the shuttle bus seemed to know that we were writers.

We were blessed with a lovely day. Heather King writes Regency novels and kept scribbling madly in her notebook about things like fan etiquette! Heather has just sold two novels, so look out for news of these here in the future – well done Heather.

We wandered around the house and grounds, had lunch, bought books and talked loads. It was a lovely uplifting day with lots of inspiration for future writing projects.

Where have you visited lately which gave you writing inspiration?


  1. Going out on the boat the other day when it was really rough but teh sun sparkled on the water, the spray flew in our faces, and the danger gave it all a bit of an edge. That will go in a novel somewhere....

  2. Flowerpot - sounds exhilarating!Amazing how when you are a writer things seen, emotions felt, people met can be embroidered into a plot. Happy sailing and writing. Mx
