This is just a quick post but it is one I have been thinking about for a couple days. Summer always presents me with a little challenge when it comes to writing. In the winter it is so much easier to curl up inside earlier in the evening and write. The glorious sunshine and late days makes summer days less likely to be lazy ones for me. I find myself doing more and writing less. The only struggle this really causes me is when inspiration hits (and it often hits harder in the summer) and I have no will power to go inside and get down to business. Plus summer is the time when social events seem to be at their peak and finding time to write can be harder (unless your friends don’t mind you typing under the table at their wedding or barbecue).
I know several of my blogging buddies are shutting down business for the summer. This is a trend I noticed last year. I know many of them will be back when the cooler days creep in and I look forward to their return. Several other bloggers I know have become the victims of the life balancing game and have given up blogging for various personal reasons. No matter why they have left the blogging scene I wish them all the best and will miss reading their posts.
As for my own blog – I think it too will be slimmer in the next few months but I will still post whenever the mood and energy suit me.
How about the rest of you, do you find it harder to write and update your blogs in the summer months or do you find no difference in your routine?
