Ode to Football Season

Okay, it’s not really an ode…maybe more of an homage.  I love football season.  Not because I particularly care for the sport, mind you…well except for the vision of all those buff guys in Spandex.  Anyway, I digress.  The reason I love football season is that it’s my prime writing time.  Not to say that the hubster infringes on it, necessarily, but I just feel a lot more freedom writing when his ass is plastered to his “man chair” and he’s totally attuned to the tube.  Then I feel free to plug in my iPod, crank the tunes and let the words flow.  On a normal week I can usually pump out at least 10K, which makes my productivity pretty damned impressive over the sixteen to twenty weeks that span the college and pro seasons.  So basically, my plan is to finish my current novella, Into the Fire, finish Live and Let Die, and maybe start playing on something else.


This week I only got about 4K done between Into the Fire and Live and Let Die, but I did have a plotting breakthrough on both, probably in anticipation of many moons of long days of writing.


So what about y’all?  What are your productive seasons?  Doesn’t have to be about writing, it can be anything you’re passionate about!

    This one is it for me too, babe! I love football afternoons for writing.

    I’m going to do a fast draft in September and last night, another author jumped on with me–so hopefully, fall will be twice the productive season it usually is for me. 🙂

    I love the Fall. I only associate football season with Sunday afternoons when GG is occupied with the games instead of mowing the lawn like he does in the spring and summer months. This is turn equates to quiet reading time. So what’s not to like right?

    Actually I love the Fall because it is the beginning of all the holidays. A time of family and snuggling and good food. I always want to start a project in the Fall.
