Summer Slump

Ah, summer.  I love it yet I hate it, because I don’t really function above 85 degrees and I burn easily, but I love the blue skies and the flowers and the afternoon thunderstorms (provided I am not out in them).

But I find it hard to get anything creative done.  It’s like the sunshine saps my creativity.  I go to work and then I come home and I work in my garden or I go for a walk or I write inane blog posts and feed Cheez-Its to the Landsquid, and by the time I get to writing (or thinking about writing) I’m exhausted.

And I worry that this is becoming a new trend.  I no longer have breaks that I can use to get some writing done at work, and the new house and yard take more work than I’m used to.

But then, I think, perhaps, I’m normally not terribly productive in the summer in general anyway.  I’m distracted by socializing and usually between projects.  But I can’t guarantee that.  I would need more data to know if it were true.

Do other people find summer drains them of their motivation?  Is it the heat?  And if it’s the lifestyle changes, what’s the best way to deal with them?  Any tips?

Til then, I shall just sit here and sip my lemonade.

  1. Summer school eats me. Hence why I reply to this a week late.
