A daily dose of Inspiration for you!

Annapolis is the inspiring capital of Maryland.  Annapolis is on Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Severn River.  St. John’s College and the United States Naval Academy are in Annapolis.

 

In the 17th century Annapolis was called “Town at Proctor’s” and other names before being renamed Annapolis.  It was incorporated as a city in 1708.  Later, water trades, boatbuilding, and sailmaking became important industries.

 

Annapolis was the temporary capital of the United States in 1783.  Delegates met in Annapolis before Philadelphia and later Washington, D.C.  Annapolis became the capital of Maryland.

 

Annapolis has a humid subtropical climate.  Summers are hot and humid.  Winters are cool and there is year-round precipitation.  Annapolis is relatively flat and it is the closest state capital to the more inland Washington, D.C.  Being on Chesapeake Bay gives it a more moderate spring and summer and less extreme winter.

 

Local and state government are large employers.  The Anne Arundel Medical Center, the United States Naval Academy, and several corporations employ many residents as well.  There is bus and railway transportation in the city.

 

Sports are an important part of Annapolis culture.  The city has over 200 acres of parkland and a 340-acre Quiet Waters Park.  The William Paca House and Garden, the U.S. Naval Academy Museum, and the Maryland State House are top tourist attractions.

 

Be inspired!  Have a bright day!

    First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had
    a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind
    before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas
    or hints? Kudos!
    I’m just reading this for some reason. However, I hope you’ve had luck. Techniques I’ve heard others recommending are making voice recordings, sketching outlines, and sped jotting first. These techniques would give you a direction which you would then turn into your draft. I always made research notes into my “story” as if I was explaining it to students.
