I love to travel. Travel sparks my imagination, fuels my story engine, and renews my motivation to write.
One of my most favorite place in the world is Paris, France. I have lived there twice, visited twice, and speak fluent French. When I lived there in 2001-2003, I was even working on a Masters about the city of Paris, though I got sidetracked by finishing my first novel — you guessed it — set in Paris. (That novel set in 1850s Paris lives in the back of my filing cabinet, gathering dust.)
While I’m not able to go to Paris, France at this time (it’s not in the budget), I can go there on the web!
Click on the picture to see a live image of the Eiffel Tower. On Webcams.com, you can visit other cities, refresh the images, and voyage to your heart’s content.
(“Grenelle is a “quartier” in southwestern Paris, France. It is a part of the XVe arrondissement.”)
PS. Where do you go to get your imagination sparked? Send in a link of a picture of the location. I’ll pick a random winner from the comments and announce the winner on Friday, January 8th, by 6pm Pacific. The winner will get a copy of my e-book, Overcome Writer’s Block: 10 Writing Sparks to Ignite Your Creativity.
