Geographical Writing Procrastination

Do authors who live in tropical locations produce more books than those who live with winter?

Apprentice Writer spent an hour and half shovelling snow today. Fresh air, exercise, toddler playing alongside, fat, drifty snowflakes muffling sounds - all very picturesque, but there goes this morning's writing session. And this is only the start of the shovel-season.

E.E. Cummings thoughts on the matter:

The snow doesn't give a soft, white damn whom it touches.

Ha! Good observation, M.
I've lost 2 good afternoon sessions because I'm sick - in bed (yeah, the nasty kind that requires copious drugs) thanks in part to this crazazy weather.

On the other hand... I lived in Bermuda for 18 years and only produced one short piece of fiction, so there you go!! Too busy at the beach ;)

You're a real-life scientific experiment!

Sorry you're not well, Wylie. I hope it won't stop you from coming to the meeting on Saturday.
