This week, I went to visit my Dad’s family in Michigan. I love New York City. But I also LOVE leaving New York City.
Best of all was seeing my family, especially my sister and brother-in-law.
Everything felt so relaxing and so, so quiet compared with being in the city.
Being in beautiful places always helps inspire me to write. Waking up to this view made me want to write a story set by a lake.
There is also a strong sense of family history when I visit. My great great grandfather built this hotel. It made me want to write a story set in a family-owned hotel. I’m happy to be back home, but I miss my family and the inspiring quiet beauty of Michigan.
