    I would have to say, "Yes!" If it is super hot (110+ degrees), as is the case where I live, I tend to get upset about it being too hot to function. In turn, that makes me not want to do anything other than get directly in front of a fan, or spend my afternoon in the pool, in a vain attempt to cool off. Now, on the flip side, when the weather is nice, there's no stopping my creative "juices" from flowing. ;)

    The weather in Dennark is pretty much the same all year long. Wet, gray and depressing, except during summer.

    In the winter I'm vastly more creative than any other time of year. I think the winter blues plays a hand in that. I am not a lover of the cold.

    I would say monotony affects my creativity. So monotonous weather has that effect. I find rain makes me more creative, snow falling, but so do blue skies. But any weather, even good weather, can get monotonous if it continues the same way after a time. I think temperatures are worse at affecting creativity.

    Yes! In the summer or during hotter periods I am more inspired to write/draw fantasy, as for the winter and cold, it is science fiction. Even for my preference of games; movies however depend on my mood but both of those are mediums for inspiration and gaming does play a major role in that. Fortunately, I am a cold weather person, though in Texas the likelyness of that happening again is slim so my imagination preferance has been made to adjust.

    Absolutely. Gray, rainy days make me want to write or take pictures.

    I use the weather to my advantage..
    ..If it's hot and i'm driving to the gym..i'll turn off the a/c to raise my body temperature before a workout..(reduces muscle fatigue)

    ...If it's about to rain really hard and i'm home.. i'll put some cleanser on the back porch.. put out a few plants.. throw some soap on the ruggs and put them out on the porch...stuff like that...you get my point icon_biggrin.gif

    I'd find a creative way to answer that but given the weather I've had a bad sinus headache for the past three days.

    I agree. The monotony of same old temperatures and no rain, etc. makes it far harder to be creative for me. I need fluctuations. icon_wink.gif

    In general I like variety. I could not live in a place where there are only one or two seasons all year round. I like bright, sunny days as well as gray, dreary days. They all have their place.

    Personally I'm already fed up with summer. I want the cold, gray days to arrive already so that I have an excuse to stay inside and be snuggly.

    Kind of... depending on my internal weather first, I could write something more spiritual, loving, or angry when its raining out and I get my spark to write.

    A very good question! this was the case on my work as well, the amount of creativity output that drives you to do like photography, graphics idea and all. it does somehow , otherwise Music is all I have for creativity to combust.

    For me it does when its all rainy season and cold. when its hot and humid I cant be lizard on a highway, I will never make it like Rango icon_confused.gif

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidExtremes tend to affect me. If it's 105 degrees in the summer and humid as hell I am going to feel crappy. If it's 20 degrees below wind shield in Chicago during the winter I do NOT want to go outside and not happy at all.


    I would stay with you inside and do something creative out of it ...probably cooking! icon_wink.gificon_razz.gif

    Don't have any creativity, but rain is definitely not helping my motivation!
