An Authors Guide on How to Survive Writing in the Winter (Deadline Looming Version) @LaynaPimentel

Do you realize that the mound of snow at the end of my driveway is actually taller than me? Well, most people and things are actually taller than me, what can I say? LOL Welcome to Sault Ste. Marie! haha

Hi all! I'm baaaack! :)

So this girl has a super seekrit Regency novel due very soon with my editor, and with the temperatures consistently dropping, I can’t afford to be delayed by writing in a room that’s too cold. Not that we don’t have the heat on, but if you live in Ontario, you know our electricity bills have been soaring through the roof. Keeping room temps between 17 to 21 degrees is our typical range at home.

55k in 30 days is no small feat, not to mention writing a sexy historical romance. So with this month being my version of #nanowrimo here’s a few handy things that anyone writing, working on homework, or even gaming can do to keep those nimble fingers moving and warm.

  •        Drink warm beverages. Whatever your choice is, keeping yourself hydrated with warm fluids is a must. Be it dirty bean water, tea, or even broth, it does a great job in keeping you alert and your phalanges warm.
  •       Take a break and stretch it out. You’d be surprised how much you can improve your circulation and warm up with 15 minutes of stretching, or walking up and down your stairs. Physical activity is a bonus and good for you.
  •       Dress appropriately. I mean if the room is 17 degrees and I’m not lucky enough to experience a hot flash while writing, I’m certainly not going to be sitting there in a tank top and shorts. 😂😂😂
  •        Fingerless gloves anyone?

Did I miss anything? What tips would you add to keeping warm while working at your computer?
