Write Anywhere #30

I had a very productive writing week. I’m about 14 scenes into a short story (now becoming a long story) I’m working on and I had a real breakthrough on nailing down the theme in my historical fiction. Only problem, it’s not what I originally planned it would be. But I’m excited because I have more direction now but a ton of research work to do. So it was in this celebratory mood I hunted down my next Write Anywhere venue.

Write Anywhere #30: Pub 


The pub has a proud literary tradition: James Joyce at The Brazen Head, Tolkien and Lewis at The Eagle and Child, Robert Burns at The Globe Inn, Dickens at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. Plus the added incentive of St. Patrick’s Day made it seem like a no-brainer. I went to my local gastropub and settled into a booth.

I used to think I was Irish, until my mother followed our genealogy back to find we were in fact English and Welsh. Fortunately the Irish are gracious enough not to hold it against me, and for one day everyone can be Irish. I did my St. Patrick’s Day duty and ordered some fish and chips and a tall glass of Murphy’s Irish Stout. I haven’t had a beer this thick before.



I hung around for a while, did some writing, enjoyed the fish and chips and tested the beer.


I recommend Murphy’s Irish Stout.

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and if you  can’t get to your local version of a pub check out this genuine pub with live music and get your Irish on!

Where did you write this week?

Question: How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day: with a religious observance, a party, wearing green, or no celebration?

  1. Love this! I think I’m going to try to make it to an Irish Pub tomorrow. I definitely wear green. And because my b-day is on St Paddy’s Day, I have tons of buttons, pins and shamrocks that I can pick and choose from. I usually get a new something each year. 🙂 Have a Happy St Patrick’s Day!


  2. Hey, I’ve been traveling for the last few days and today I’m writing in Fort Myer’s Beach Florida looking out at the ocean from my lanai. I love writing in pubs but I’ve never tried Murphy’s Irish stout! Thanks for the tip. Way to go on your scenes Kristin. High fives!
