Road Trip Wednesday #150: How does your writing change with the seasons?

Welcome to our 150th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic is: How does your writing (place, time, inspiration) change with the seasons?

Road Trip Song of the Week: "Autumn Sweater" by Yo La Tengo

Next week's topic: What do you hope to be writing in one year? Three? Five?

  17. I didn't think the seasons affected my writing, but maybe they do! http://www.christiespeich.com/blog/2012/10/road-trip-wednesday-season-changes/

  18. My writing is clearly linked to the humidity level. I can write, write, write, until it gets too hot and humid, (some time around August), and then I just curl up into a ball and weep, because the world is too miserable and wont let me out. I've also found that winter break is really good for revisions.

    I like to write about the weather that's going on outside, it's inspirational (and I don't know if I could live somewhere where there aren't thunderstorms and blizzards). But once it was mid october and I was writing a story that took place at Easter time, and I was so absorbed in it that I actually thought it was spring.
