December 2020 IWSG

 



Good Morning, Writers. I woke up this morning to a beautiful surprise: three inches of the white stuff, and no, I'm not talking about the empty space on my screen begging for letters. Having grown up in the southern US, I do love snow and wish we could get more here in Rochester, NY. But for now, I'll just appreciate each and every flake.





A happy holiday shout-out to our host, Alex J. Cavanaugh, and his merry band of co-hosts: Pat Garcia, Sylvia Ney, Liesbet @ Roaming About Cathrina Constantine, and Natalie Aguirre!

This month's IWSG optional question: Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?

I currently write best in months that contain the letter W. Sad, but true. These days are filled with finding the vertical asymptotes of functions, stoichiometry, rotation and revolution of the earth, and on and on. Funny, I once swore I'd never homeschool my children. Irony!

Otherwise there are cats to amuse, years of clutter to sort, and as much exercise to cram into my schedule. Plus, I'm binge watching The Crown late in the evening.

But when I was more active writing, I'd do best from September to December and then January to early May. Summers have been spent in the yard on various projects.

Here's some more pictures to get you into the Holiday Spirit:




I'd shake off this stupid hat if I wasn't so cozy.  (Dove)



Did someone say "vacuum"?


That's Noche in his fort of overturned tree boughs cut from the bottom of our tree. But check out this shot from my daughters more superior phone and picture-taking skills: 



I is adorable, no?


Have a safe, healthy, and wonderful holiday season...

  4. I'm sure you'll be getting plenty of snow in Rochester. We have it in Michigan every year, and I'm glad when it's a mild season. Sounds like you have your hands full now. Hopefully, you'll have more time to write in 2021.

  8. If I'm productive during a certain time than others, I have no idea because I don't pay attention.

  9. Love the cat in a hat! How did you get it to keep it on?
    We seldom see snow where I live - in Vancouver, Canada. Definitely never in November. Maybe there will be some snow this year. It always gladdens my heart ... if there isn't too much of it. The problem with too much snow - Vancouver is not equipped to handle it. We don't have snow plows, so too much snow often clog the streets.

  10. Your cat tolerates that hat! I didn't know you were in Rochester. I lived in Ellicottville (A ski town SW of there) back in the early 90s. We got a lot of snow--one year 240 inches of it!

  12. I'm visiting your blog in January and hoping you are still enjoying the snow! We have snow coming our way this Friday, and since it's not the first snow, I seem to have lost some (not all) of that delight at all that white stuff. Hope you are well and that 2021 will be much better for us all.

I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)
