Indie Life, Five Ways Writers Know It's Too Cold

Because being Indie doesn't have to mean going it alone 

As I’m sure you’ve heard on the news, it’s been very cold back East (Midwest too). As a writer here’s how I know it’s too cold.

1. You’re eager to put your characters someplace warm. The Bahamas. Bermuda. Heck, even the Sahara will do.

2. You’re writing on your laptop not because it’s convenient, but because it puts off heat.

3. You backup all your documents. Not because you could lose power (which is true), but because pipes are freezing in the walls of people’s homes and you’re not really such where your pipes run.

4. You put a jacket and gloves on your character before he goes outside only to remember that he’s in Egypt. (Okay, this would have worked this past summer. But snow in Egypt is rare.)

5. You wonder if you can manufacture a “writer’s block breakthrough” so you can stay in bed under the covers with your warm laptop.
