It snowed this week and today the roads are covered in a soft mist, making the air feel like a mysterious movie.
I love it.
Weather can change a mood, give ambiance, or (as my daughter tells me) finally makes it finally feel like Christmas.
The same thing is true in writing. Have you ever about a funeral on a sunny day? Or a happy ending during a rain storm? It just doesn't work as well. Having the weather match a mood draws in a reader and gives them a sense of setting. Weird how it works that way.
So, note to self: next time you are writing a spooky scene, don't have it at a wedding. Weddings aren't very spooky. Well... mostly.
What is your favorite weather for setting? Sad/rainy, mad/windy, happy/sunny?
I'm going to go cozy up with my lappy and get some writing done. Woohoo! Have a great week everyone. (Only a few more days until Christmas. Can you believe it?)
