The Writers Circle: Weathering the Storm

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

As seasons change, often our lifestyles change. When the weather turns warmer we spend more time outdoors and get more frustrated by rain. How does the weather impact your writing? Do you write more or less at certain times of the year or are you pretty steady about it?  Do you tend to incorporate weather events in your real world into the events in your writing world?

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.

  1. Weather is a great thing to add to poetry. It lets you express certain emotions that are difficult to say any other way. I do tend to write more in the winter since summer weather lets me get outside and spend more time in my workshop.

  2. I’m one of those fortunate people who get seasonal depression. Now that the scenery isn’t a mass of gray and brown and the days aren’t so deprived of light, my writing has picked up. Not only do I have the shades up on the window next to where I sit and pound on the keyboard, I have a window open so I can hear and smell nature in the semi-rural area where I live.

    Although the happier weather effects my writing, it doesn’t effect the weather I inject into my scenes. My WiP runs the gamut of the year, in fact many years.
