This is a no fail setting for me to want to write. The soft, dreamy fog hovering over a landscape is so inviting. It just oozes of adventure.
It is soothing, dark, lovely, intriguing. So many stories have been born out of rain.
Beautiful in a dark way, they are a break from sunlight’s monotony. A foreshadowing of what is to come. An arising conflict. A black travelling cape to be worn for a great escape.
A different setting and mood. Signifying another world, another time. An invitation to the fantasy side of the mind.
Tell me, fellow writers, what it is about the weather that inspires you? Does rain or fog transport you to another place or time, enabling your writing to flow? Or, does a clear sunny day speak to your creativity more?
Love this! Weather may be more influential on our writing than we think. I definitely write more when it’s pouring out. Sunshine and hot days usually deter my writing.
It is amazing how much our surroundings affect our writing.
I am with you on the hot, sunny days. They make me want to swim or relax under a tree. 🙂
Beautiful images used there. It’s funny – the advisers at large always tell you to never start a story with the weather, yet the weather is always important to us at a very personal level.
So true. It can affect our mood and inspiration very much.

It’s funny how we are always advised to never start a story with the weather, yet the weather is the one element that invokes so much in us. As does the images Sara selected for this post.
Sunny days, the soothing quiet of snowy crystals falling in the moonlight – I love the weather. 🙂 Well, the calm weather that is. 🙂 But calm or violent, the weather has the power to mirror a character’s feelings and, in my opinion, illustrate those feelings to the world.
Thanx for this post. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by! Ah, the vision I get when I imagine a gentle snow in the evening is so peaceful.
Sara, you are in my head again. 🙂 I am so tuned to the weather. And my mood follows the weather very closely. Fall is my favorite time of the year and my head elves are very productive during that time. No telling what might get posted. This is really spot on about creativity being influenced by visually stimulating weather. I get very otterly when the seasons change. 🙂
Yay! 🙂 I LOVE fall and it’s cool that you feel the same way – inspiration really takes flight in the fall. Fall is a time of change and great ideas!
Oh, absolutely! 🙂 I’m in hyper-drive now with ideas and things. If I wasn’t working, my blog would be screaming for relief from all the posts. LOL! Our fall change is gorgeous here with the leaves and late year blooms.
Pretty! 🙂 Oh yes, your fall must be a lot warmer than ours. Though Vancouver is warm for Canada, it’s still Canada haha. Sounds lovely where you are! I love the spicy smell of the changing leaves. 😀 And the cooler weather is a nice change, too.
I’ll take a lot of pictures and share them. My sub-tropical fall 🙂
Sounds good! 🙂
