When do you write it? When do you publish it?
I am not writing this from experience but from considering what and when to write. Usually around October I think, yikes, I should be writing a Christmas novella. But I’m not in the mood for Christmas. No way could I write a novel at this time, probably not even novella.
For other occasions, Easter, Valentines Day, or Breast Cancer month I write a piece and it’s rejected because I should have sent it in 2 months earlier. So, I need to write it five or six months before I send it in.
It’s almost a new year and I’m looking at my goals for the next year. So, for Valentines day – I’m too late.
Easter, should be by early January.
I have to admit I have a problem getting in the mood four or five months in advance. It’s Christmas and New Year’s and I should be writing Easter stories.
My goal is to fit these novellas into a schedule five to six months before the event.
How do you fit the seasons into your writing plans? Do you need to be in the mood? What are you writing now?
