For as long as I can remember, rain has ruined my life. Birthdays. Halloweens. Real holidays, like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Arbor Day. What the hell, rain?
It rained when I went to go get my hair done for prom.
It has rained almost every time I’ve wanted to go to Six Flags (that’s a theme park, my non-American pals).
It rained the days leading up to my wedding so the ground was all squishy and my heels got stuck while we took pictures.
It has rained out beach days and barbecues.
It has rained whenever I’ve gotten my hair done, turning me into a troll doll.
It even rains whenever I need to do laundry, which can only be accessed from outside.
Don’t tell me about flowers and crap either. I am NOT a flower. I don’t give a damn. When I’m thirsty I grab a bottle of Poland Spring from the fridge. Besides, it’s winter. There are no damn flowers!
Right now, the rain is once again rearing its damp, dreary head. My prequel novella, Blood in the Past, goes to the editor in 15 days. It’s been raining for like the last week. Soggy, slushy, stupid rain. I can’t work when it’s raining. I just want to cuddle up on the couch, eat soup, and watch television. Or snuggle up in bed with my Kindle. I have no desire to be creative. Who can be creative when everything is so dull and grey?
You guys can, can’t you? I’m sure you’ll tell me all about it in the Comments Section. Like, how you can just put on a comfy T-shirt, pull some journals out of a tote bag, write it them with some brand new pens, and cheerily eat chocolate. By the way, if you find yourself in need of these materials, you should probably enter my giveaway where I’m including all these things as part of the grand prize. All you have to do is help me name my debut psych thriller series.
Because, once the sun comes out, it’s back to writing.
I like rain… I remember writing a whole short story when I was younger, which lived to be my favourite idea at that time, during a rainy afternoon…
A lot of writers seem to work better on rainy days. Since I can’t, and I can’t write with music on either, I’m finding out I’m less and less like other writers. Haha.
I LOOOVE the rain. I will trade you! It NEVER rains in this hell hole! I do such good work in rain! Lol 🙂
And I do such good work in the sunshine. I’ll definitely trade you. Especially now that we’re in the middle of a cold snap. Lol.
Lol ironically this weekend we seem to be getting your rain and gloom. It makes me so giddy. hehehe.
It’s snowing here! So now I’m giddy!!
We got that once down where I am, it was kind of scary cause no one knew how to handle it.
They don’t handle it much better in south jersey. At least not compared to where I grew up in new york.
Mmm I’ve always wanted to live there… You’d think people who see snow a lot would know how to handle it lol
I’d have to agree with you rain sucks! So does snow though ( I rhymed!) Rainy days are the perfect days to couch chill and watch Lifetime or the ID channel.

I like rain–the sound of it dripping upon a window pane. It’s soothing to me. As a child, I used to look out of the window in my grandparent’s bedroom while it was rain. I guess that combo is where my memories come from. Great passage. 😊
