Hot time Summer in the city...

Remember that old song?

Yeah, as our heat index climbs, it sure comes to mind. It is hot in the city and in the country too! I don't know about other writers but I find myself struggling to pay attention to the written page when it gets above 90 with humidity. So in order to beat the heat, I rise about 5 a.m. and work on stories until the house stirs at 7. Then, after breakfast, I do a bit more. When the sun gets to the back of the house, I move to a notebook and work away from the desk in a cooler room. Another thing that helps is working on those winter stories. Now, is the time to finish those Christmas tales and submit. Check publishers for deadlines on those holiday themed stories.

Just remember in January we'll be cussing at the cold weather, snow and ice that are keeping us indoors.

Here's a picture to help us remember those bad times...

A timely reminder - I tend to forget about everything in the summer holidays and then before I know it, the weeks have slipped away.
