Do you like walking in the woods? When I need to bring back peace and quiet to my heart, I head for a path in a forest near by.
Especially during Fall.
Tree leafs turns bright yellow, warm orange, sparkling red and soft brown when Fall comes knocking around here. Beautiful doesn’t cover it, not one bit.
The beauty simply overtake every other waking thoughts that may wonder in my writer brains.
Until, from the corner of my eye, we catch a glimpse of something moving. Too fast to be a deer… Too big to be a squirrel… What if it was…
Then, a story starts twinkling. Just an idea.
From there, everything goes.
Writing Mood and Fall Gloom
Fall is certainly bright and shiny at times, but more than often it’s gloomy and cold. Which, in my humble writer opinion, is the absolute best time to write.
Thing is, even though we have a preferred time of the year to let ourself wander in the Words and Imagination land, it’s not always possible to just go with the writing mood.
Nor should we feel pressured to write just because November strikes back, yet again.
Setting writing goals and book time for writing is one thing. Going crazy angry because something goes wrong with the plan in another, and not an interesting one.
I know the crazy angry path well.
I worked hard to be able to finally get over this awful idea that was constantly dragging me down: « my life is getting in the way of my writing dreams ».
Now, all that’s left to do is go back to writing and let go of self-imposed pressure and stress. Oh, and I’ll do good without the impostor syndrome too !
Dear fellow writers, it’s always great to be able to share my writing adventures with you. I hope your safe and well.
Until next time, may all the good words be with you.
