You might remember my post from a couple of months ago about the crazy winter snowstorm we had. Well, after that it went back to fall, and now it almost feels like spring again. We’ve had a nice and warm November, and now I’m stuck waiting for snow again so I can enjoy reading and drinking tea under warm blankets in earnest. Below is a picture of a beautiful sunset the other week. There is no snow in sight.
As we get closer to Christmas, I’m going to have a few more Christmas posts. I haven’t started my shopping yet, but when I do, there are likely to be plenty of trips to the book store. Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to get outside to enjoy the weather and get some fresh air in an attempt to get over this cold that has been plaguing me for two weeks.
But I do feel like the change of season is appropriate. Because I spent that brief winter finishing up my Black Depths Series, and I’ve now moved on to writing something completely new and really just ‘General’ fiction for NaNo and the shift has been an incredible and welcome change. I’m being forced to work my writing brain in all different ways, and get to know characters that have been hanging around the edges of existence for a while. It’s also nice that there isn’t snow, since the book I’m writing takes place in the summer. The current season is helping me to keep that in mind. Hopefully, the snow will hold off until I finish this ‘summer’ project. But only time will tell.
