Writing Weather


It's been chilly and overcast here in eastern Nebraska. It's the perfect weather for staying inside, cozying up under a blanket, and reading a book or watching a movie. But it's also perfect writing weather.

For some reason, my desire to write becomes much stronger during the autumn and winter months - especially when we have dreary, cold days. Snow during the winter is even better!

What is your perfect writing day weather?

  1. Same as your, it seems. I love it when it's cold, or even miserable outside as I don't feel I should be outsid doing bits, and can happily stay inside and write to my hearts content.

  2. Also the same. Fall and Winter. Every summer I think I'll do better, and every summer just stinks for writing. But come the shorter days and cold weather and, bam! I'm back and writing regularly again.

  3. I'm sorry you have been sick plus enduring snow! UGH! It is so hot back here in Florida that I actually miss the cooler temps in Seattle.
    ANd I have that itch to write too! Maybe we needed a break:)

  4. The perfect writing weather is just what's settled over New England, which sounds like your Nebraska weather. Cool temps in the upper 40s, cloudy, and now a drizzling rain has arrived, and is supposed to hang around for the next few days. Perfect ... Happy writing to you.

  7. All of my favourite weather distracts me. I love the snow, as you know, but I love to just sit and stare and watch. I love the rain, but I love to just sit and listen and watch. I can write in the sunshine ... so long as it's not too hot. Fog would probably do it for me, but I'd still be wanting to watch the swirls and mists ... and be distracted.

  9. Love to write in the rain, but there's something about a wind rustling through the trees that always gets me thinking.

    Love your blog - this is my first time here. Hope you can check mine out sometime.

  10. Rain and cold--which fortunately, we have plenty of in the Pacific NW. Very little dramatic weather, which I miss--but which cuts down the distraction factor for writing.

I love to hear from you!

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
