These ruins are the foundation for my series, Order of the Dragon Knights.
How I long to return, since this was only a photo stop and we did not take the tour.
Trust me when I say, I was beyond upset. It was my main purpose for traveling to these parts. My hands itched to touch the stones, so you can imagine how difficult it was not to be able to wander the grounds to get a feel for the place. I absorbed as much as I could that day and made a promise to come back when my first book was published.
Yes, I shall return!
I may not be walking the grounds of Urquhart, but these surroundings stir the creative juices.
For now, I’ll be content with these gorgeous colors, drawing forth from a well of inspiration, which began many years ago when I started writing Dragon Knight’s Sword.
Do you have a special place that inspires you?
