    Have you noticed a personal yearly cycle of when you write more (or less)?

    If so, how or what do you do to help you get through the slumps?

    Other than journal writing, which is usually just a way to organize the day to day reality and  to work through some of the frustration and "angst" I write poems to celebrate nature, and to record the seasons changing. In spring I get all inspired about the light returning. In winter darkness is a constant theme. Sometimes I write in response to an author or an artist who touches me.  I've always been a writer, it is as natural to me as breathing. It's a way of recording timelines and  life events and acknowleging the challenges and mystery of being  here now on this planet. I usually need some kind of deadline to do any other kind of writing, had that for years studying writing and also  working as a writer (newspaper reporter/photographer) for many years. The last writing on any formal level was doing a gardening column which was fun, but I stopped when the 911 terrorist attacks happened. That really had a profound effect on my writing and my life. Everything has felt much more "serious" and precious at the same time, and my writing has taken on a much darker, but also a more grateful tone, thankful to be so blessed. Thankful for so many gifts. But hey, I am way off the topic here. Thanks for asking

    Though I write year round, I find more inspiration seems to find me in the fall.

    I don't have a yearly cycle. I have a daily cycle where I'm more creative at night into early morning. But the seasons don't seem to make a difference to the amount I write.

    I just got started and it crossed my mind whether or not that would happen to me. I'll be sure to make not and answer again next year! Lol

    I seem to be the most productive during the spring/early summer. I think this is due, in large part, to the fact that it was right after I got out of school. I was then free to write whatever I wanted and I still had that school work ethic (summer hadn't made me lazy yet). Plus, spring is the beginning of my favorite season and I like feeling like I'm getting ahead with my writing rather than catching up. I find that I rarely write stories that take place in the fall/winter, so during those actual seasons, I find very little inspiration. I still write, but like I said, it isn't as productive.

    I've noticed that I lose incentive to write in January/February and it takes a long time to get it back. Fall seems to be a time of new beginnings for some reason (even though spring should be the logical time for that!) Outdoor activities are more appealing at that time of year and carry me through the summer. I still haven't figured out how to make the transition into writing easier. So, I have much more to learn!
