Are we inspired more by people or places?
That’s the question Writer Abroad has been asking herself lately.
She’s determined that she’s most prolific when thrown out of her comfort zone. This can mean living in a foreign country, becoming a parent for the first time, or returning to her own country after internalizing another culture’s way of life.
All three of these things intersected to inspire her piece, In Switzerland, Parents Observe. In the U.S., Hovering is Required, which ran in the New York Times a few weeks ago.
