A Season for Writing

Tip of the Day: there's tons of cute fall and Halloween decorating ideas on Pinterest!


It's one of my most favorite times of the year. 
Whether it's because of the beautiful scenery outside with the changing of the leaves...
the fact that there's an entire day in October where it's perfectly acceptable to pretend to be someone else and dress in costume..

it marks the season I was born in...

Or merely because it's the start of a fun, new TV season :) 

Whatever it is, there is something special about fall to me, and for that reason it's become one of my favorite seasons to write about and the season that seems to motivate me to write the most. The amount of free time I have seems to perfectly align with the work that needs done and the writing flows more than any other time of the year. I've also lucked out that NaNoWriMo happens to take place in late fall, so it's always great motivation to keep writing even when I don't officially participate.

For these reason, I'm not only very excited it's fall, but I'm also considering doing NaNoWriMo officially for the first time in three years.

Anyone else participating?

Does anyone else feel like their best writing times revolve around a certain season?

Em, I don't think I'm going to do a word count Nanowrimo, but I'm thinking of doing a day count, as in during November I have to write every day. Happy birthday!

I think that's a great plan. Sometimes the word count can be your friend and other times it seems like you just write non-sense, merely because the word count goes up. Your way might be better :)
