Winter Writing Blues: The Season of Drought


I can’t believe that this is my first blog post of 2016.  Wow!! Well here goes.  It’s been over 10 years since making NC my home, yet I still haven’t come to terms with or managed to find any common ground in dealing with the ever changing winters here. One day it’s dipping into what constitutes a normal winter with frost, snow, and ice, then the next day we’re cruising to seventy city. It’s crazy.  But what has become even more sporadic, grazing the lines of unsettling, has been the up and down scattered state of my writing/reading.

For me it seems that the winter season, for whatever reason, posts most of my drought times as of late. I have always been one to curl up with a good book during the dry cold season (usually accompanied by a hot caffeinated beverage), yet now days I rarely find or make the time for either when I get home from work.  Even my participation in my beloved NanoWriMo the last few seasons has been minimal at best

At times I’ve all but had to drag myself into finishing or even starting new books and/or series. While my love of reading/writing is still present, it seems as though my drive and desire to partake in either has seriously dwindled.  I’m hopeful that this first blog post of 2016 will be the spark that I need to pull me out of the virtual funk that I’ve been in.  The spotlight has been cast.  But I guess only time will tell if the fog lacing this writer’s/readers drought will descend soon. Fingers crossed!!!
