Do the seasons affect your writing sessions?
I seem to write more often in the spring or autumn seasons. What is your season for writing your best?

I think it does in a good way gives me more inspiration but I can see how it can affect you to
I think I get more done during the winter and bad weather days, since I have less outside factors pulling me away from my computer. But I have no issues with seasons on a physical basis. I can usually write whenever I decide to do it.
The harsher the better! Dark skies and rain is best. There is a certain controlled melancholy in which I enjoy. Don't ask me why.
Hi dohn and thanks. During thunder storms I feel cozied in and it is rather melancholy or nostalgic of childhood days when Mom and Dad gathered all us kids together during bad storms and kept us entertained with stories.
I find thunderstorms fantastic for my creativity! I always want to write when thunder is booming or the air is stilling and building up to unleash a torrent. Of course, I often *don't* write because I also enjoy staring out the window a lot!
Yes and no.
Many things affect my writing...or shall I say "not writing",...and I haven't been able to put my finger on any one thing.
Wish I could...then I could fix...and WRITE (often).
How about you?
The initial change of a season always gives me a boost in creativity. The first signs of spring, the days growing longer toward summer, leaves changing colors, and finally falling snow.
I'm most inspired in the fall, though. Perhaps because I love Halloween and get to write about it and focus on it. Or maybe I just enjoy the crisp air, the smell of leaves and fires all around.
I guess I don't really have writing sessions. I get an idea for a story, I sit down and write it, and then I'm back to whatever I was doing. Seasons and weather don't seem to matter.
Absolutely; everything I do is heavily influenced by the season. (I totally buy into the pumpkin spice every fall.) In the past, I used to get most of my writing done in the spring/summer. Which was kind of an accident simply because it's when I was off from college and had time to focus on my own projects. It worked pretty well until I left college, at which point the drive wasn't the same. Now I seem to gravitate more towards the fall/winter, specifically November. It was NaNoWriMo that first encouraged me to do it and it kind of stuck. I'd still like to write in the spring/summer, but I find that I do more editing now than new drafts. Great question!
I tend to write throughout the year. I tend to write more often on the train and then put what I have written onto computer later on. I do most of my computer work in Spring and Autumn. The cold bothers me more than the heat. Winter is not my favorite time of year.
i write when the weather is cool, i prefer air condition places rather than at home, it brings out the mood to write
I can and do write anytime, Phyllis. Having said that, I believe that weather can have an effect on our moods. If it is very cold, I try to keep warm. I have some caribbean blood, let us say, and so I hate the cold. So maybe you're right, but nothing to do with my capacity. That is always with me, God's Grace.
I don't think so. Rather it is the moods which affect me. Sometimes I feel bored, sometimes excited. I get idea suddenly to write about some particular topic and then sit down to write. But for my regular subject on economics and finance does not need this sudden inspiration. It is a regular process and I keep writing as and when I find time on my economiccounts blog. It is only with other subjects, that I depend on moods and inspirations but not affected by seasons.
When living in Michigan, winter always seemed like a good time to write adventure stories (man vs. nature themes).
Now that I'm in Florida, any time but summer seems best, although I've been focusing on quilting and my grandson lately.
Hours of the day that seem to work best are very early mornings (3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.). ***
