Yep, it’s here. Yep, we got slammed into it like a hockey puck into a net. No easing into the season this year. Again. Though I am relieved we didn’t get the foot of snow that was predicted for our area. Farther north of us, however, got dumped on. Like, a foot of snow or better dumped on.
Sigh. At least I didn’t have to shovel!!
Last year we had January weather in December. This year we get December weather in November. Average temps for our area: 40s. Temps for this week and next: 20s. If we’re lucky.
Which gives me a great excuse to focus on NaNo. By now we’re finishing up Week 2 and crossing the 25,000 word milestone. Have you hit the slump yet? Has your muse hit his caffeine limit and is now trying to shake off the post-rush tremors? Don’t let him get too far away.
If you’re in the central part of the US, where we’re enjoying unseasonably cold weather, you’re in luck! Sitting in front of a keyboard tucked into a Snuggie and accompanied by a steaming mug of hot cocoa (with or without peppermint schnapps) or coffee is a perfect way to avoid thinking about the fact that it’ll be around six months before we see spring.
Anyone see my muse? He seems to have wandered off. Time to just start writing. Hopefully he’ll see the Bat-signal and show up before I finish my second mug of cocoa (and yes, mine has a splash of schnapps, because hey, it’s cold outside!)
Enjoy your weekend, and WRITE!
