Nature writing is something I’ve been intending to do more of. It’s already four years since I went on inspirational workshops with Mark Cocker and Patrick Barkham.
It was during my #30DaysWild Challenge that I considered the issue of environmental themes in my stories. If only I could think of a good topic to write on, one which I had some expertise, or at least experience.
Then I realised I have a unique opportunity to write about a patch of land that I can see from my house. It’s owned by someone else, but it’s basically a managed field, part of the flood plain of the River Wensum in Norfolk.
