Writing inspirations – the stories an old boat might tell

Today’s writing inspiration – for NaNoWriMo entrants and for writers of all persuasions – is a photo I took of an old boat in Sydney harbour.

A boat in Sydney harbour...
A boat in Sydney harbour…

The planking and paintwork says it all; and as writers we have to wonder who sailed on this boat over the years – what were their lives, their experiences, their hopes and their dreams? What are the stories that flow around this old boat?

A moment to ponder, to think, and to be inspired.

    1. It was a dramatic day – we were on our way to Parramatta by ferry with looming clouds. They turned to wind a little later, which made photography challenging! The old boat caught my eye as we approached one of the many landings. What piqued my curiosity was the fact that Sydney waterfront properties are top value and the boats reflect it. Except this one. So what’s it’s story? Intriguing to speculate.
