February isn’t just for lovers. IT’S FOR WRITERS!!!!!

February is made for writing. Seriously.

The weather sometimes sucks (unless you live in Colorado, like most RMFW writers), leaving us with no excuse but to get some words on the page.

We’re also still in our honeymoon period with the hastily made New Year word count resolutions (by June it’s all over) we’ve made.

We can often use our Valentine’s Day gift goodwill with our partners to sneak off for an extra writing session or two without risking bodily harm (unlike in June).

It’s a short month, forcing us to push for more words daily so as not to throw off our monthly word count.

For how many of you is November your highest word count month?

Agents and editors are finally digging out from the holidays and New Year submitters. Which means they are all but begging for your beautiful words!

And then there’s President’s Day. A time to remember what words can mean for a country.

One more reason February rocks for writers is Groundhog Day. Not the rodent, though he’s super cute, but the movie. Fiction is just like that movie. We write, then edit, and rewrite, until we get the ending right!

What is your favorite writerly month? And why?
