For the travel writer, arriving at the destination is the easy part. Now, you’ve got to decide where your story begins. Is it at the airport? The downtown market? The place where you eat your first meal? Let’s consider four helpful tips for finding your story.
Remember, whether you’re recording it or just taking notes, get it all. Don’t rely on memory. Take pictures, record sounds and, if you’re low tech, jot down notes. And interact, interact, interact. Don’t be a statue, be a resident. Ask locals for help, for directions, for information, whatever. This gives you an insight as to the vibe of the city and its people. All of this has one purpose and one purpose alone- to help you find your story. And once you do, you will be surprised when you realize how easy it is to share. And, more importantly, you’ll see how much readers and publishers what to hear what you have to say.
