May 2 question – It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

The awesome co-hosts for the May 2 posting of the IWSG are E.M.A. Timar, J. Q. Rose, C.Lee McKenzie, and Raimey Gallant!

I can’t say that Spring inspires me more than other seasons. I like spring–don’t get me wrong–but I’m probably more of a cool, crisp, autumn kind of a girl. I like summer and winter, too. In all honesty, inspiration isn’t the issue. It’s avoiding distractions… like, oh, look, a robin. I’m more likely to be outdoors and wandering around in the spring, since the weather is nice. More likely to be doing something else.

Right now, I already seem to be distracted, enough.

I’m working up to querying, and I’m trying to get my mind to settle into the next project.

At the moment, I’m going through a phase where I don’t really have any idea what the next book is going to be. A few ideas have fluttered in and out of my mind, but none of them have stuck.

And there’s always the thought of going back to last year’s NaNoWriMo project. I have quite a few pages there, but I’m stuck with characters drifting through space in a broken space ship.

I don’t really know how you get yourself out of drifting through space.

Probably just buckle down and write.

But if you have other thoughts, leave them in the comments section.

    Spring is when my teaching work winds up and I finally have free time to write, and then I doubt myself more than ever and start spring cleaning to avoid writing. I know it’s typical, and I go through it every year, and I hate it.

    I’ll wish you good luck and mental strength for the querying, and a good big hit of inspiration for the next story!
