When I’m writing, I generally have a music playlist (or two), but I’ll also have one for movies and TV shows. Not for every novel, it’s just for certain stories I need a little help getting into the vibe. Pure Dumb Luck was definitely one of those.
I thought I’d share a couple of the movies I watched while writing my fun travel rom-com.
And they’re not in any particular order.
Eat, Pray, Love
This one might be a little cliché. And there are definitely parts of this movie I don’t love. But the genuine joy of travel, food, and life was really something I wanted for Pure Dumb Luck. So this movie was a no brainer.
This might seem a weird choice, particularly as I’m not very religious. But this is one of my all-time favourite Martin Sheen movies. It evokes the spirit of the journey/travel. Not a perfect film, but it did help me get in the mood to write about an adventure.
The Bucket List
If you’ve seen The Bucket List, I don’t have to explain why it’s on the list.
If you haven’t, you probably should. =)
How about you? What are your favourite travel-themed movies?
