It just started really raining here again and I couldn’t be happier. Yeah, as a bike commuter it means leaving earlier, and riding through dark, wet streets in piles of rain gear to get to work, but otherwise the rain is awesome.

Here is one of the waterfalls on a walk I do a lot last week:

I’m going to apply this to writing. Like the flow of water in the creek, my flow of words on paper is going to totally flood the page. It is already happening. I really love this time of year!
What about you? Do you have seasons where you tend to write more? Are you planning on Nanowrimo? What gets you motivated to write? And do you like rain?
