What everyone’s talking about this week:

The #1 question all travel writers should ask
WOOEE. You’re on the road. You’ve planned a great travel writing itinerary, maybe even sold a story or two, and you’re out there doing it. Nice work! But now what?

I know what you’re thinking: “Oh god. The pressure’s on. I need to get me some great material.” Good plan. But where is this great material going to come from?

Part of the answer will come from the destination itself. The activities you are doing and the people you are meeting are all potential story fodder. But how do you know you’re going to the right places? Or talking to the right people?
