The summer is now more than half over and I can see the light that is the first day of school getting closer. With the beginning of the school year comes my reacquaintance with writing, and more to the point, editing. My newest book is begging to be finished and as long as the chaos of summer reigns, it will remain lacking in polish. Ordered a proof copy though and I'm very pleased with the cover design (more about that, including a picture and info about my designer, in a later post).
As I immerse myself in back to school nights and back to school shopping I can almost hear my manuscript calling to me. I will get my computer back. I will have some time each day to edit. I will eat chocolate. Ok, that last one doesn't hinge on the start of school, but really can you blame me?
All practical considerations aside, I'm looking forward to autumn. It's my favorite time of year. I love the cool, crisp air and the approach of the holidays, the colors of the leaves, the tang of woodsmoke in the air. It's refreshing to me after a steaming summer.
So readers, what's your favorite time of year, and why?
