Paseo Marítimo de la Playa Poniente Benidorm (Spain), 2009

“There’s Emerald City! Oh, we’re almost there at last! At last! It’s beautiful, isn’t it? Just like I knew it would be! He really must be a wonderful wizard to live in a city like that!”

-Dorothy, the Wizard of Oz

The best way to get into writing mode is to feel inspired. Every city, whether it be Benidorm, Spain (click on the picture above for more information on this incredible public art project), Los Angeles (in my case) or any other, has more inspiration to offer than one person could possibly consume in a lifetime. You just have to look for it. From art museums, to public libraries, to old restaurants, to vintage shops, each city offers vibrant gems of inspiration that can serve as the landscape for your next great novel, blog post or article.

Be the wonderful wizard in your personal emerald city and embrace all it has to offer. Your writing will only improve if you do.
