Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This Week's Topic is:
October!! It is SO fall! How does your writing (place, time, inspiration, etc) change with the seasons?
Normally seasons don't inspire what I write. When it's summer I'd still write a book that is set during winter. It's the story that usually chooses the season, not whichever one I'm currently in.
However Halloween is always different. When Autumn comes and we move from September to October I've really got the motivation to write horror. Tons of ideas come into my head and I'm more and more inspired to write. Most of what I watch during the month is a horror film and I have a playlist on repeat with my favourite Halloween tunes.
Christmas is actually my first festive love but I never have the urge to write something set during Christmas. Maybe it's the folklore surrounding Halloween. I love folklore and legends so maybe that's the reason for my obsessive horror story plotting. If there's anything that gives me ideas it's spooky myths. :)
Do seasons inspire you?
