DIARY OF A WRITER – August prompt

Edinburgh 30 July 2022

Two of the dancers are known to me – Romance author, Sophie Claire and her friend Jane. These ladies had travelled some distance to take part in the Kate Bush fundraising event for Maggie’s Centres and other cancer charities. The Edinburgh event was sited in the open grassland off the Queen’s Drive in the Royal Park.

So, why is this a prompt? It’s Edinburgh on the brink of the Festivals and such surreal happenings are not quite ten-a-penny, but not unusual. However, they are different, inspiring, thought provoking and, I think, surreal.

If I can’t get a story out of going along to watch this, I do not deserve to call myself ‘writer’.

I hope your own month is filled with inspiration.
