…and find writing inspiration on the road.
If you’re not following @laurieelizabethflynn on Instagram, you should be. She
recently completed a two week trip around Canada’s Northwest Territories and the
Yukon, as well as Alaska.
Here she is at the famous Yukon writer Jack London’s cabin in Dawson City. Jack London came to the Yukon to join the Klondike Gold Rush in 1897, and the struggles he faced in the harsh terrain lent inspiration to some of his most
well-known stories. Laurie was a huge fan of Jack London’s books growing up (she obsessively read THE CALL OF THE WILD and WHITE FANG under the covers when she was supposed to be asleep).
She recently found out that he was a Macmillan author, too! Several of his books were published by Macmillan starting as far back as 1902. This trip (and the advice on daily word count) is a dream for any writer!
