It’s a beautiful day in Raleigh, or perhaps I should say morning. I’ve been waiting all winter for the weather to break and an opportunity to sit on my porch and take in the beauty of my surroundings.
I shut down in the winter. It’s hard for me to focus and create. I’m like a tree that loses it’s leaves and suddenly awakens with the warmth of the sun and the promise of more to come. Not sure that’s a good thing, since winter is three months of the year, and this year it seemed to never end.
I feel refreshed, renewed, ready to jump back in and get that novel hibernating in my computer out and about. It’s amazing what a beautiful day can do.
I’ve kept up with my blog, because it’s a commitment that I feel honor bound to do, but I have really slacked off on my writing. I have two excellent books in queue waiting for my attention, I just haven’t felt motivated.
The winter season wasn’t a total loss. I did read a lot, although I could have probably read more.
Are you affected by the seasons, the weather, circumstances that surround you? What do you do to motivate yourself? I would love to hear your suggestions.
