July Inspirations

For many of us, July will build memories of boiling in a heat-wave and trying to find ways of keeping cool.

Remember to document some of this – the feeling that you are melting, sweaty skin and clothes, heat mirages on the road and the blessed relief of a cool shower.

Write about the tension heat can create where people aren’t sleeping well, the frustrations over inconsiderate neighbours with late barbecues. Write about the feeling of release and a thunderstorm can give.

Also – Christmas may not be the first thing on your mind right now, but it’s a good time to polish up those stories and submit them to women’s magazines or begin that Christmas-themed novella.
