I posted the above pic to my Instagram in February, but it could have been taken today. Spring has been wild up here in the foothills of New England, and not just because we’ve been in the throes of a global pandemic.
Our weather has been all over the place too. Mostly, it’s been much colder than predicted, and I’m wondering if it has something to do with the fact that Mother Nature has been granted a reprieve from battling mankind.
I’m writing this post on May 9th, and the current view out of my bedroom window looks like this:
Which, yes, is beautiful, but is also slightly frustrating when you’re writing a book set in summer. I’m not sure about other writers, but I like to write seasonally. I wrote Snowed In during deep winter, and started The Lunatics: Volume One last spring, just as the ground started to thaw.
Thanks to the pomodoro method, which I talked about in my last YouTube video, I’ve been doing really well with my writing. This work week (Mon-Fri), I’ve written just shy of 10k words and posted two chapters to the site.
I had planned to do some more writing today, but this view is NOT motivating me. Instead, I think I’ll take a day off, sit down, snuggle onto the couch, and read.
