Writing in the Rain

As writers, we all know that writing every day is essential. Whether we are working on story outlines and maps, writing a first draft, editing, or polishing, we must contribute to our creative process.

Some days, that’s easier said than done. I get that. I have noticed, though, that weather can be a great influence on my writing.

The past fee days have been overcast, rainy, and cool. It’s the sort of weather that conjures up images of sitting in a comfortable chair with a furry companion snuggled close by and reading a good book.

While these days conjure those images for me, they have also been a great boon to my own creative process. I have made great strides in organizing the flow of my novel and sketching out scenes.

As an extra bonus, because I evidently don’t have enough to do and enjoy tormenting myself, I’ve almost decided to participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).

What about you? Does the weather seem to affect your writing? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo?
