I'm counting hours now...

The kids go back to school tomorrow!

I'm so excited because it means I'll be back on a schedule. And that means WRITING time!

You have no idea how many ideas have come and gone at times when there was no paper or pen to be found! (Ok, you guys probably do know.) And at 11:45PM. Yes. And I've been bad, I didn't get up and jot them down. Oh, the sorrow!

But this week I've been dreaming details into my Fallen Angel story. Figuring out the back story, the motivations, fleshing out the characters, and I've almost figured out where I want to take that little piece I wrote so long ago. Some things will have to change, but I'm getting really excited again.

And you know, that feels really nice. I've missed the joy of just sitting and letting my imagination flow. Escaping into a  new world. That's my favorite part about writing. Trying to find the words to convey the pictures playing out in my head. Isn't it wonderful to have a good working imagination?

How is your writing going? Is it easier for you to write in the fall and winter or do you get more done in the summer?


  1. You know what's funny? I read the very first line of your blog in my post stream (or whatever its called) and my first thought was of that Staples commercial. I love that commercial so much. Very, very clever.

    As for my writing, I certainly didn't get much done this summer so I'm hoping for a more productive fall.

    Good luck with your writing...

  2. I am a totally back to school writer. I can't get anything done in the summer. Although I do read more in the summer than in the winter.

  3. I just plug along no matter what time of year it is. However, I only write in spurts. I sometimes go six months without penning anything.

  4. No kids, so it doesn't matter the season. Glad you'll have your writing time back.

  5. Seasons don't affect my writing too much. Hope your writing season is everything you hope it to be. :-)

    I totally agree about the joys of having a well-oiled imagination. Mine's been chugging away in the background on a new novel idea as I edit Tangled. There's holes all through it at the moment, but I'm looking forward to filling them. Exciting times! :-)

  6. Oh, I have no idea when I get the majority of my writing done. It gets done when I actually sit my butt in the chair and write, which unfortunately these days isn't that much. I'm trying to get back into the habit, but this month's been too hectic to keep it up. But now I'm back to work, and the move is over, and things have settled down. Time to find the routine again.

    Congrats on the kids going back to school. I hope you enjoy the first day of quiet :)
