People often ask writers where they get their ideas from, how that seed of inspiration is sown. I think if you are a writer then the answer is easy. From everywhere, from everything.
From the sad girl in the street to the child playing alone. From the man staring out of the train window, to the girl crying over her coffee. From the couple arguing in the street, to the bride and groom taking their vows. Everyone has a story, everything is a story.
Sometimes though just a beautiful place is enough. This incredible restaurant we found on the Amalfi Coast was the perfect place for lovers; wonderful food, nice wine, an idyllic view. How could a writer of romance resist setting pen to paper (or finger to keyboard!).
