Winter is coming, and not in the way of the TV show and books I’ve never seen/read respectively, but in the Chicago way, meaning soon I’ll be wading through gray icy slush when I need to go to Walgreens. Ah Chicago in the winter.
But a Chicago winter is not without its charms, especially when you don’t have to be out in the weather. The snow quiets the traffic, sets a fluffy blanket of clean white over everything.
For about 15 minutes, and then it’s enter that gray icy slush. Good thing I have my boots from last year.
I like living in a place with seasons, one brutal, three with distinct personalities. I can feel my creativity shift with the weather. And you know I’m one to romanticize the act of writing, curling up while the wind howls with my computer and a cup of something hot.
Doesn’t that just make you want to get going with whatever you’re working on?
I thought so. Get to it.
