A quick trip to Corsica

In my latest work in progress, the Spinster's Vow, I'm bringing my hero and heroine to Corsica. Why? It's because I've visited the lovely island in 2009 and really want to set a story there. Hehe, the power of being an author!

It has taken nearly 70,000 words to bring my main characters there. And yet, when I wanted to describe the beauty and uniqueness of the island, my mind is filled with sub-plots and how take them back to England to solve a mystery.

It's going to be a quick trip to Corsica. How about you? Is there a place you have travelled to that you want a story set in there?

And no uptake of the drabble challenge this Friday. But I've written something with the word "love" in it. I'll post it in Facebook.


  1. Corsica is always a place I've wanted to go, Enid. Of course, there are very few places I don't want to go to....the middle of the Sahara is the only one that comes to mind! And even then...

  2. Middle of Sahara can be very inspiring. I liked Tunisina too when I visited it like 20 years ago.

  3. I love Cannon Beach, went to my nieces wedding there and it is so beautiful. But hey, I might be a little partial to Oregon. :)

    I'd love to go to the Sahara too, I think it'd be cool.

  4. I've only been to San Francisco, Ohio and NYC, Kimberly. Would love to do a road trip in USA one day.

  5. Fabulous, I love books that are "firmly" in a specific setting! I've also been working on a side job in travel writing, and have had a few articles published. . . but in my fiction, I also want really intense settings. I've set one short piece with Germanic folklore in Salzburg, and my YA urban fantasy novel is set where I live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

  6. Love Salzburg, Austrian and their music. Thanks for dropping by Jessica.
