The Ocala, Florida Public Library

They offer a room for writers where you can read your works and get immediate critiques.  A great group of writers.  After there is a late lunch at Wolfey's Restaurant.  Although no longer a member, I still keep in touch with the group.

St. Augustine, Florida

This is the oldest city in the USA. There are old family homes with incredible history. It is a fabulous way to soak up atmosphere for a historial novel, ghost story, or small town. Inspiration can even come from some of the tourist traps, if you can look past all the showmanship, and just be quiet in the old fort, oldest jail, oldest school house, etc. The is the worlds best wax museum there. Tons of inspiration at the Flagler Museum and Flagler College. A cross large enough to see for miles sits next to the bay, and a fabulous Greek Orthodox museum invites tourists to come in an experience their beliefs and to pray. Imagine going into a museum and seeing people sitting on the floor or bench with heads bent in prayer. St. George street has living manequins on platforms, no cars, and trendy shops located in hundred year old buildings. The beach is one of the best in the state.

How could you NOT find inspiration there?

My favorite writing spot in Orlando, Florida, is the Studio Cafe on Curry Ford Rd just down from Charlie's Bakery. It is part of a music store, the Band Room, and has really good vibes. Spacious and inviting, the proprietors don't mind if you sit for hours over 1 cup of coffee--which is excellent--and no one bothers you while you're bent over your laptop, book, or whatever. It's never very crowded, even in the late morning when the ladies from an exercise class down the street pop in for their post-workout coffee, nor in the late afternoon when mothers congregate waiting for theirs kids taking music lessons. It is a great place to write!

Lakeland Florida
Hollis Gardens
Alright there is not much in the little redneck town, but there is a group of gardens. Hollis gardens. Its peaceful and outside, with lots of small secluded spots to sit with a notebook. (If you get kicked out for a wedding which can happen alot) there is a walkway to the lake, where there are even more places to sit and be inspired. Lots of people walk the area and are truly inspiring.
WARNING: If its your first time there beware of the creepy ceramic statues. They look life like and are placed throughout the area. More then one person has been startled. Of course the reactions can be inspiring as well.
