I know it's a bit late to make the observation, but: It's summer.
Summer means sunshine.
To be fair, if you live in the Midwest, summer means ALL POSSIBLE PERMUTATIONS OF WEATHER EXCEPT MAYBE SNOW (THOUGH THERE WAS THAT ONE TIME WE GOT SNOW ON MAY 1).
But generally, summer is sunny, if humid. And there is something about sunny days—especially the nice, high-pressure ones with low humidity and a little breeze—that makes me feel very creative.
Today is one such day. I feel bursting with energy.
It makes me wonder if the Sensory Deprivation Closet is the right writing environment for me.
More and more, I dream about a desk in an office with a great big window, or even a solarium!
I don't know what the solution is right now. But I am doing some serious thinking.
