All Rained Out?
But as I've grown up, I've developed a certain love for those old storms. Yeah, they still give me the willies, but not more than I can handle. I even like writing when it's stormy - stormy, mind you, not just rainy. Just rainy days make me tired and woozy and...that is not conducive to good writing. When storms pop in the Great North, and since we live on a lake, the summers can be quite stormy, you'll find me with my laptop (unplugged, of course, I'm not crazy!) or iPad on my lap, curled into my favorite chair so that I can look out the window from time to time...creating what I hope are some great scenes.
I've found that storm-writing can be great for those emotional scenes - the ones where the Hero or Heroine have a lot to lose by opening up? Yep, give me a thunderstorm and I'll make myself cry.
Are you a weather writer? What kind of weather is your best ally?
