Bizarre Places Where I Have Written A Good Man – Vanessa Morgan
I often get asked during interviews if I have a favorite place to write. Usually, it’s from the serenity of my home – at my desk, or, if it’s freezing outside, in bed with my cat, a giant cup of hot tea, extra blankets and a radiator on maximum heat. I also write wherever or whenever I can: public transport, waiting room, etc. However, some places outside the house do lend themselves perfectly to write. Here are some of the places where I have written my latest release, A Good Man:
I live only a couple of minutes away from the airport of Zaventem, Belgium. Once 10 o’clock in the evening, there are no more departing flights and the departure hall is eerily empty. As Starbucks in Zaventem Airport stays open all night, it becomes the perfect place to work – soft jazzy sounds, cheesecake and hot chai tea create the perfect ambience to write for hours.
Zaventem Airport is also a good place to write during day-time, especially if you can get a spot in one of those restaurants with a panoramic view of the departing airplanes. Working can be really enjoyable when it’s something you’re passionate about and in a place you love.
I wrote the third act of A Good Man in the inviting little cellar bar of Cinema Nova during the OffScreen film festival. For those who wouldn’t know, OffScreen is a film festival in Brussels, Belgium, that specializes in cult films.The spooky decorations of the festival definitely add to its inspiring atmosphere.
