Writing is Not a DIY Project

I have drafted quite a few novels over the years (12 I think??? Geez), but I still can tell you, every time I sit down to do prep before I write a novel…I’m never sure what it was I did the last time.

1. September 22nd. It's officially fall. And it couldn't be a better first, fall morning at 8am. It's dark and deeply overcast. It's cool, and already there are brown leaves scattered across the lawn. The rain is steady, soft drifts of it coming down.

1. It's super duper windy today at the lake. In general it’s been very windy lately. I like wind. I like watching the trees bend and seeing the leaves fold over themselves, like they’re ducking for cover. Strong wind feels like a warning, and a lot of times it is.
