Author's Life

Writing on an April Shower Day

So far April is living up to “April showers bring May flowers.” I don’t mind as long as I see a bit of sunshine peek in from time to time. Looking ahead to next week, more rain is expected. I enjoy writing on rainy days. Especially the most emotional scenes.

I’m writing the last chapters of the book which include several emotional scenes. Today I will be drawn into summoning memories of deep emotion to add to the pages I’ll write. The rain helps to set the mood.

After completing such a scene, I need to stop and recuperate. I listen to Christian music because singing praises to God lifts my spirits tremendously. Music soothes my soul without fail.

Writers pull from their experiences which might be why some say you’ll find a piece of every author in each of their books. I know it’s truth about me. As this current book is drawing to an end, other plots are running through my mind for what I’ll write next! But for today I will welcome the April showers and simply enjoy the writing process.
