Blogging Inspiration from the Silver Screen

The movie Out of Africa inspires my writing and blogging indirectly. Every time I see it I am reminded that there really is no substitute for lived experience.

I’ll always write, but without rich memories of love and travel, adventure and food, I won’t have much to draw on.

We’ve all heard “write what you know,” an adage I feel forgets the point that writers need to constantly learn, live, experience and then know more.
