Writerly Weather

Since I'm taking a break from revision I might as well make it a big one. It's a perfect day to capture something we in California are beginning to cherish--RAIN. A week ago Cheryl Herbsman let me expound on how weather affected my writing, so this is kind of a follow up to what I said on her blog.

Today is a perfect indoor writing day. I've banged out twenty pages on a new WIP and am feeling smug. Please allow me a bit smugness. It will vanish when I REWRITE those twenty pages next week.

I also poked my nose out the door to inhale the smell of fresh rain. Thought I'd share a bit of it with you, so here 'tis.



 For me this is absolutely a perfect day. For my--semi-wild, but wanting attention anyway-- cat, it isn't so hot.




Happy end of February. I'm taking off for San Francisco tomorrow to watch the dragon dance in the streets. I'm a tiger and this is my year to celebrate. I'll try to capture some of the sparkly splendor of the Chinese New Year parade to share next week.

  4. Sounds like kitty wants in. I'd love to go with you to San Francisco and see the dragon dance. And by the way, I'm a tiger too. (Stalking the wild publisher and/or agent.)

  5. Love that you're a tiger and stalking, Bish. The cat does want in and then goes ballistic if I close the door. Obviously, she's been shut in by someone not too kind.

    Happy hunting.

  6. I kind of miss snow, Jemi. This year I really wanted to get to Tahoe for some cross-country skiing, but everything conspired to keep me in the low hills. Que lastima!

  7. The rain did get pretty loud, Tricia. It provided sort of a white noise--great for writing.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
