Writing about Sense of Place can be a joyful experience. I take time to write. I find an idea or place I want to write about and write deeply, creatively, descriptively and with literary intent. Writing about Sense of Place with all its dimensions and nuances is more fulfilling for me than writing travel copy, although that can be fun if you find a niche; but I like to play with words; enjoy the luxury of creating visually stimulating and eloquent sentences. Sometimes, I come up with a line, or two, that gives me pleasure when I read it. That is the gifting that comes from writing well about place, place-making, architecture and spatial design, and the life that grows organically from landscape, food, culture, music and all the good things! Not to mention the absolute joy of looking back to travel experiences and reliving them as you write!
I run travel writing workshops about this topic - The Joy of Writing about Sense of Place!
