Originality #13: I Need to Stand Next to the Pyramids

In this episode Aleen and I talk about the value of travel and research trips for creative people. About how getting outside of your normal life–even if you go just 2 hours away–can feed your muse. I talk about how my trip to Europe this year gave me unexpected inspiration, and about how I need to visit places in order to really know how to describe them.

And jumping off that, this is a tiny reminder that I am still trying to raise money to go to Egypt next year for research. If you want to support me and my work, you can donate to the fundraiser via YouCaring. You can also support me by supporting my Patreon. Even $1 a month helps.
