Fall hit here yesterday. The leaves on the trees thought it was before, but the temperature said differently. But we got an amazing rain storm (though I was less than thrilled by the impromptu fireworks show at 2:00 am) and the forecast has our high in the 70's for the next 10 days.
It's my favorite writing time.
The one downside, however, is that I'm habitually cold. It's really quite ridiculous. My husband calls me a reptile, which holds a decent amount of truth. So today, some hints on how to not freeze while writing.
1. Get a big sweatshirt. It needs to be at least one size bigger than you normally wear because of comfort, pure and simple.
2. Invest in several pairs of fingerless gloves. Etsy is a great place for these (male or female) because they are hand-made and have some substance to them. I know people who just buy a cheap pair of gloves and cut the fingers off, but that still leaves all that fabric between fingers. And it's important to have your hands feel as close to normal as possible when writing. It really does make a difference.
3. Sit in the upright position. This may seem silly, but, at least for me, if I'm in big comfy clothes and not sitting in a working position, I don't work. I know some people can manipulate the recliner and laptop and stay productive, but this girl isn't one of them.
Anything else you'd like to add as a necessity in writing when the weather gets cooler?
