A Victorian Obsession

Welcome back to the Monday Inspirations series. Today’s post is written by Luccia Gray.

I write historical fiction because I love travelling in time and space. I’m not interested in purposefully (I’m afraid I can’t control my subconscious) writing about myself or people I know, at the moment. I prefer to lose myself in other places and eras.

2016 – the year of Travel, the Moose, and Temperance

When I was reflecting on 2015 and making plans for this year, the theme for 2016 kept popping up – travel. While at the moment I have no travel plans for the year, it seems a good a theme as any.

There are, of course, places I’d like to go this year, such as Crete (for a week-long workshop on Minoan culture) and London (for the 2nd Annual Bloggers Bash), but at the moment I have no idea if I will be able. I will have a chance to travel a bit around Poland. I plan on attending the Big Book Festival in Warsaw this summer. I hope that I’ll be able to go to Krakow once again for a few days as part of research for my novel. Maybe I’ll go to the Conrad Festival in the fall.

Physical travel is only one way of going places, and I’d like to interpret my theme much more broadly and inclusively.
