if i could pick one place in the world
to write my story,
where would it be and why?

IWSG monthly post

There are so many places, really. How to pick just one…

 I would probably like to sit in a shade by the Nile, near some ancient monument I could look at while I write. Karnak Temple… Luxor Temple… The pyramids… Abu Simbel… Kom Ombo… Edfu…

I can't really decide which would be my favourite location. I can't really see them all at the same time. Or could I...?

Oh, I know! I would love to sail the Nile in a private cruise boat. Sit on the deck under a shading canvas, watching the shores of the Nile glide past. 

I have once been on a Nile cruise – a short one, but still. From Luxor to the beautiful Ptolemaic temple of the goddess Hathor in Dendera. I could have sat on the deck forever. The little children ran to the shore when they saw the ship and waved and laughed. Date palms swayed in the breeze. Reeds floated in the river, forming little islands. There were no waves in the Nile, and everything was so beautiful. Camels and donkeys on the shores. Little villages glide by. Fishers throwing their nets from their boats. Merchants selling their ware from their boats. (I bought a beautiful blanket - I still have it and love it).

 Yes, that is where I would like to write my book. On the Nile, visiting the sites where my novel would happen... That would be such an inspiration!
