As summer shifts into fall, my story ideas change. I stop thinking about books set at the beach or on some European summer adventure, and instead start thinking of back-to-school plots or (if I’m in a Halloween mood) maybe something a little bit spooky.
Fall is my favorite season, by far. There’s just something about the crisp cool in the air, the smell of spices and warmth emanating from the houses. Everything seems more comforting. I know as soon as the heat breaks here, I’m going to be thinking of new stories set against the backdrop of glowing leaves with hints of cinnamon and smoky fires.
What about you? Does the season affect your writing?
Quick note: I’m changing my blogging schedule from M-W-F to M-W for the time being. I want to focus some more time on writing (novel idea, I know). But I’ll still be stalking all of you every day of the week!
