Gearing Up for Rural Fantasy: Dartmoor Inspiration

March 18, 2015

With CampNaNoWriMo around the corner, I’m doing a bit of research for my project, but some of it I did years ago without even knowing it.

A while back my computer malfunctioned. Luckily I had backupped (phew). Unfortunately, my external hard drive broke before I was done transferring everything (argh). I didn’t lose any of my writing (double phew), but I thought I’d lost a bunch of photos until the other day when I managed to salvage some of them from an even older computer (triple phew).

Some of the pictures were taken on a trip to Devon, England (visiting friend and fellow writer Mike), where I saw the beautiful Dartmoor. Incidentally the story I’m about to start writing takes place in that area, so I thought I’d share a few of my inspiration photos.

I hope you’ll enjoy them!

    Was I there that day?

      Yes, you were! We had lunch up by a tor, and you took a picture of me petting a pony. 🙂 And now that I’ve finally found your website, I linked to you in the post. 🙂

    I’m about to write my first fantasy story as well, and I find photos very helpful for that.

    What wonderful pictures! I’m jealous of how close you were to those beautiful horses. I would have ridden one home. 🙂

      Thanks a lot for dropping by my blog! – And for the kind words. 🙂 They were quite lovely, those horses.
