My love/hate relationship with September

My biggest issue with September is that it means fall is on its way. As beautiful as the dazzling rainbow of gold, rust, red and purple leaves are, I can't help but remember in two seconds they will all fall off the trees leaving nothing but sad looking tree skeletons in their wake. I love the lush green of summer and the longer warm days. The fireflies and campfires. Swimming. Fireworks. Sigh.

BUT...this year I'm looking forward to poor September and the rest of the fall season a little more than usual.

My son will be going to school 3 mornings a week. (Its only from 9-1130, but still) Which means I get to spend all of that time writing at the library. Summer kicked my ass this year and I got off schedule big time with my writing routine so I'm very excited to have this designated Internet free time to get back to spending regular quality time with my characters. Even the fact that the sun sets earlier and the weather will grow colder doesn't seem bad. It means we'll be stuck in the house and earlier bedtimes which all points to getting back to more writing time for me.

So this year I say, bring it on September! And October, you're mine.

Besides, its sort of hard to hate something that can look this pretty.

Autumn tends to be my favorite season. More so after the heatwave we had here in NY this summer. I seem to write more when the weather is cooler for some reason. (Hugs)Indigo

I love autumn, even though where I live it doesn't feel autumnal until November/December.

I feel the exact same way. I'm really looking forward to getting back into a better writing routine this fall. Summer kicked my ass too! :)

It's totally impossible to hate anything that beautiful. I concur, wholeheartedly. :)
