Am I the only person who has a hard time writing in heat like this? 103 in the shade this week and the sanity is melting off me like ice cream. It’s impossible for me to focus. Bring on the mid-day rain storms and crisp, chilly air of Autumn, please!
So what do you do when it’s too hot to write?
Well, I’ve been taking some time to fill my tanks, as it were. My creativity tanks. I’ve been going to movies, hiking, exploring old mines, traveling, anything at all to refuel on those things that will keep my creativity humming along in the next few months. And thankfully, I can feel it working. Just last night I had a bit of dialogue float through my brain that I had to write down immediately. I don’t know who said it or where it goes yet, but I will. I can feel my creative tsunami on the horizon.
Some people don’t need to do this. Some people are so filled with creative energy, it may never run out. I, sadly, am not one of those people.
But on the plus side, my tanks are nearly full (I can tell by how many new book ideas I’m hit with just as my head hits the pillow at night) and I’m ready to get back to the actual writing part of life.
So, my question writer friends is, how do you fill your creative tanks?
