Longer days, happier campers (and writers)

SunsetLast weekend in Italy we set our clocks forward, and oh!, what a difference an hour makes.

I’m sure it says something about my simple-mindedness, but my mood improves markedly with the lengthening of the days.

For those of us who love to write, perhaps it seems counter-intuitive, but I find these longer days to inspire more creativity. One might imagine the shorter days and colder weather are more conducive to writing, but I always find myself more inspired and eager top write in the spring or summer.

Let’s hope this year’s no different. Happy spring writing to all…

    We’ve changed time a while ago already. I love longer days, but in a funny way I’ve also enjoyed the late sunrise. I wake up early and this is when I like to write. I’ve loved this couple of hours in the dark.

      Good for you, Evelyne. I think it’s great you start your writing day while the rest of the world (and household) is still quiet. What a great way to start the day off right!
