Spring Fever

The sun was finally shining again this afternoon and I had to squint because the visor of my car doesn’t go down far enough to cover my eyes. I didn’t mind after days of clouds and that fluffy white stuff that keeps clinging to my corner of town. Spring fever has returned.

My mind is thinking of the layers of clothes that I can shed to feel like I lost some weight. Napping doesn’t require layers of blankets. I can take my book outside. Then, you know what will happen, I’ll complain about the heat because this is an annual tradition up here.

Yes, I’m still here and I think our more dramatic seasons give us more opportunities for stories. I know the feeling of all the seasons and they can happen all in one day when it’s time for another change. There’s more flexibility for settings too.

Everyone up here has the countdown to warmer weather going as we zip around sighing every time we think we see a flake of snow again. Have you ever been caught off guard by a downpour, a snow storm, or a heat wave?

Well, that’s our prompt for today. Write a few paragraphs and bring your characters into a storm. Up here this can mean a soaked tent, a turn off the highway, or a white knuckle drive home. A big storm may even mean a night at some dumpy motel with someone you didn’t expect. Write for 5-10 minutes.

My posts are Monday to Friday!

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
