It's also the time I start getting more organised - sorting out writing projects, clearing drawers and hopefully actually getting on with the current work instead of playing around at writing. This year, I'm going back to printing out interesting submission opportunities as I always forget to look at them when in a file on the computer. I'll leave them there too so they're handy to submit online, but I've discovered I prefer to have a folder containing printed details which I can keep on the desk or in a drawer or can take to any room while thinking up ideas.
I even love putting any summery clothes away and sorting out the autumn/winter weight items ready for use again. The boots are out of their storage boxes and handy for when needed and I've started identifying any gaps amongst my warmer clothes. This isn't as daft as it sounds since I've a terrible tendency to be tempted by sales and end up with things I don't need or that don't go with anything. I did say how much I enjoy organising at this time of year!
Please tell me if you're an autumn person and why.
