‘Tis that time of year. New notebooks and pencils, giving up the freedom of long summer days of unscheduled time and getting that derriere back in the chair to concentrate on putting pen to paper and working once again.
Sounds like back to school season, doesn’t it? And, not so strangely, it’s also back-to-writing season for some of us who were – ahem – less productive writing over our relaxing summers.
As I watch my own kids settle back into their back-to-school rhythms, it gives me that push to complete my own ‘homework’ in the evenings after I return from work.
And you, writers? Does the fall back-to-school season help you kick start your writing, too?
