This week we're talking about how the weather effects our writing. I never get much writing done in the spring or summer months. Whenever it's pretty outside, I feel like I have to be out there enjoying the fresh air. Besides, there's too much to do in Atlanta during the spring and summer. Festivals, screen on the green, free outside concerts. The list goes on.
Winter is a perfect writing season for me. I hate to be out in the cold. I'd rather stay in where it's warm and toasty. I absolutely love to write when it snows, but that doesn't happen here much. Strange, most of my stories take place in the spring or summer. During the cold months, I can sit in front of the computer for hours, and not feel like I've missed a thing.
I also like to write when it rains.The rhythmic tap on the roof is like a form of white noise but keeps me from getting distracted. I can't write in complete silence. I find perfect silence kind of creepy. It's why I have to go the sleep with the TV on.
So here's to my favorite writing time of year. It's already started to get cold. Let the writing marathons begin.
