On Inspiration and Ogunquit, Maine

Breaking New Grounds
Writer Abroad does not believe in writer’s block or in waiting for inspiration to strike. Sure, sometimes inspiration does strike, but it doesn’t happen often and waiting for it would mean she would never accomplish anything.

Writer Abroad also believes you can be inspired anywhere.  In a dark room with no windows. On a train. Or in an apartment. But it doesn’t hurt to seek an inspiring place to write sometimes.

Which brings us to Ogunquit, Maine and the most amazing coffee shop for writing that Writer Abroad has ever worked in. It’s called Breaking New Grounds. The pumpkin gelato is as great as the view. In case you don’t believe her, the view is below. Add in free Wi-Fi and an ocean view and you have a great place for working—if one of the most beautiful spots in the U.S. doesn’t distract you, that is.

Ogunquit has a history of inspiration—artists have come here to paint for decades. It’s gorgeous. And there’s a 1.25-mile path along the ocean, called Marginal Way. Contemplate work or chat with a friend on one (or all) of over 40 benches along this path from Perkins Cove to Shore Road.

This morning, before going to Breaking New Grounds, Writer Abroad ran along the Marginal Way and then took off her running shoes to run on the beach. The cold water soothed both her feet and her spirit. Sounds cliché but it’s proof that clichés can be great for inspiration too.

It's set mostly in America but Denmark and the Danish feature prominently in it. Of course, Denmark is not Switzerland, but I'm sure you must have traveled there in your time abroad. Cheers.
