IWSG May 2018

It’s time for IWSG Day–the first Wednesday of every month! Do check out the group, founded by Alex Cavanaugh, here. And thanks to our awesome co-hosts: E.M.A. Timar, J. Q. Rose, C.Lee McKenzie, and Raimey Gallant!

On to the IWSG question for the month:

It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

Funnily enough, spring has finally sprung here in the Northeast, after what seemed like an endless winter. I’ve had six-day work weeks for a while, which has cut down my available writing time, unfortunately, so my writing projects are going at a crawl at the moment. But I am nearly done with a short story, which I’ll send to a friend for her opinion. I’ll have to decide how I want to publish it after I get her notes.

My bigger project–my contemporary romance novel outlines–are still going, but at an even slower crawl. But nothing seems insurmountable when there’s finally sunshine and decent temperatures outside and I am still thinking of those stories and developing them in my mind, so they will get written, just not as quickly as I would like.

  1. Ooh, a short story? ^_^ I always find myself finishing something up at the top of spring. I don't think any season really makes me want to write more than another, but I know middle of winter makes me want to write less. Windy nights make me want to write for some reason if I get out in it somehow. Six day work weeks are tiring. I did that for a while.


  2. Slow and steady wins the race! The weather can have a big impact on mood. If we get rain for too many days in a row, I get all bummed out and lazy. Good luck with all your projects.


  3. Some stories need time to percolate and mature. I think it's a crime to rush that process and throw something out there before it's ready to see daylight. Definitely let it come in its time.
