I’ve just returned from my annual walking tour of the English Lakes, with aching muscles and tired feet, but plenty of fresh inspiration for the world of Rhoderica.
I’ve mentioned before that the lanscape of the lakelands provided inspiration for a large section of Book Two of the Song of the Elves, The King’s Blades. A trip up Great Gable and along the hills around Ulswater has provided plenty of fresh imagery to enhance forthcoming volumes of the SOTE saga.
By the way, we didn’t bump in to Prince William – he was making his way up Helvelyn as we were chugging across the lake to Howetown, though I believe he was ‘gutted’ to have missed us.
Up the Elves!
