Five years ago today, on October 8th, 2011, I visited Tintagel, on the coast of Cornwall. The trip was one of the many side excursions during my semester at Oxford, a period that changed my life in many ways.
I became stranded in Tintagel, and the following morning I climbed to the edge of that rocky piece of land pictured above, fighting fierce winds as I watched the dawn. The experience inspired me to write about a character attacked from all sides, totally alone, and the inspiration quickly evolved to become The Scythe Wielder's Secret.
Today, I am thankful for the experience, and nostalgic for my trip. The entire original blog post about Tintagel, written 5 years ago, with many pictures, can be found HERE
