The days are getting shorter–I always notice this sometime in October, before daylight savings time kicks in. Darkness arrives at 6:30p, and it’s still dark at 7am. In a couple weeks, when we turn back the clock, daylight will end sooner and sooner, edging back into late afternoon.
And of course, this also means I’m a lot sleepier a lot sooner. It’s bedtime right now, says my brain!
How will this affect my writing? I like writing in Fall and Winter–is it the darkness that drives me? I’ll get my feedback on my thesis Friday, and then I’ll probably be writing like gangbusters for another week. For now, I’m thinking about my non-thesis novella.
