Yesterday a blizzard blew through my area. It was a bit frightful to go outside, so I stayed in. What a great opportunity for writing!
Weather can provide opportunities to write, but some forecasts are better than others for certain writers. Snow days keep us cozy inside pondering how to weave treacherous conditions into our stories. Thunderstorms ignite fearful scenes and hiding under warm blankets while typing. Cloudy days bring out the melancholy moments for our characters (and maybe for ourselves). Sunshine inspires us to take a nature walk with our journals and write poems about our sensory experiences.
Or we can take any of these weather forecasts and write about the opposite condition. Writing can transport us from a blizzard to a beach.
Whatever the weather, finding writing opportunities is an accurate prediction.
What is your favorite writing weather?
