I’ve been a writer since the late 80s and always envisioned writing my screenplays and novels in a special room overlooking the ocean. I haven’t found that room yet. Maybe you have a writing room with a spectacular view and understand my desire.
When my husband and I decided to retire to New Zealand in a few years, I started taking pictures of landscapes in New Zealand during our visits. My husband is from New Zealand’s North Island and we visit his family about every three years. What you’ve heard about NZ is true; it’s an amazingly scenic country, going from beautiful white sand beaches to bright white glaciers in one day’s trip.
The photos at the top of the Writers Pitch Book home page are my idea of a great vista from my writer’s room when we retire to NZ. I’ll keep sharing the inspirational views as I change the photo from time to time.
I would love to see the view from your writer’s window…or a picture you’ve taken on a trip that may be your dream view. I’ll make a gallery of your pictures if you email me one. Just add a note about your name, where in the world the photo was taken and if it’s really the view from your window, or if you would like it to be.

SKY ON FIRE
The current sunset photo at the top of the Writers Pitch Book website home page was captured in the small town of Franz Josef on the South Island of New Zealand in March 2005. My husband and I had just had an invigorating hike to the edge of the Franz Josef Glacier and then a helicopter ride to the top of the ice. Walking to dinner at one of the local pubs, this stunning sunset lit the sky on fire and we captured a few shots. People began coming out into the streets to witness the biblical-looking sight.
