The groans are abundant. But I am looking forward to the first big snowfall in our area!

Okay, so spending a day skiing will take me away from the writing options I talked about in my last post. But think of the invigoration factor. That brisk air! The racing heartbeat! Shushing along a logging trail through silent, pristine forest! A steaming mug of hot cocoa (with mini-marshmallows, of course) in front of a toasty fire at the end, gradually peeling off layers of wool sweaters and insulated legwear. Ah-h-h-h.

I do my best writing after a hard workout, especially one in the brisk, fresh air. Maybe it has something to do with blood circulation to the right side of my brain. Or maybe because exercise makes me feel so alive all over.

Whatever the reason, I’m looking forward to the snow that so many people dread, and I will be disappointed if the weather predictions are much ado about nothing. And when we return from our adventure – after the hot cocoa and a hot shower – I will dive back into the research for my next novel – or maybe flesh out the evolving outline – with a clear head, gusto and pure joy.

Any doubts why moving to a warmer climate doesn’t appeal to me?

Let it snow!
