We're under a winter storm warning right now. The wind has started to pick up and the temperature is falling. Today I stocked up on dog food and I bought a big bag of the expensive bird seed...the kind they really like.(Yes, birds do have a preference when it comes to what you put out for them.)
I have a pot of chili on the stove and I dusted off the snow shovels. I am ready.
Clearly, the grizzlies got it right when it comes to surviving winter. Lay on some fat and curl up where it's warm.
In other words, hibernate. This is not a bad idea for humans, either...especially humans who write.
When you go into hibernation to write for the winter, no one questions your motives. Maybe your car won't start, it's just that cold. You could get frostbite out there. The roads are hazardous. It makes perfect sense to stay indoors and curl up with the book you're writing.
Here are a couple of images that capture the comforts of hibernation.
Keep warm this week. Stay safe. And write on!
