It’s raining for the third day in a row and finally I’m at the computer writing.
The excuses for the two days I didn’t write are the usual festive holiday excuses; friends dropping by, a day at the beach (even though we did have to take cover from the rain), calling in to see friends for a beer and barbecue, walking the dog and generally just lazing about because, after all, I AM on holiday.
But as I said, “It’s raining,” and since it’s raining I will find time to write. I love rainy days for many reasons. I can’t hang washing on the line. I can’t go outside to read a book in the sun. I can’t do a lot of sunny-day things and so I write. Well at least I do something to do with the writing process. I research on the net. I update my blog (doing!). I print out a revised draft and sit comfortably in a chair, editing and adding more words to the next chapter as I occasionally gaze blankly at the rain dripping down the window.
I love the smell of rain and for some reason it’s become a muse for me. I feel the creative juices flowing and I’m on my way into my imagination.
DO YOU LOVE RAINY DAYS OR DO YOU FIND OTHER DAYS BETTER FOR WRITING? I’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
