Many of you will know my history with February (brief summary here - lots more in February each year on sidebar and under Simply Write).
This year I have moved my writing month to March and will be spending it working on my book in Venice (why not?), so February will be about preparing for the adventure! I moved it because Carnivale is in February and that's not really the Venice I want to experience. March in Venice is still quite cheap (prices jump during Carnivale - aother reason for avoiding it). The weather is very variable - there can be aqua alta, wind and snow (I hope) and balmy spring days with some warmth in the sun. It is of course less crowded.
I enjoy this blog about Venice, and this post which I have linked to before, is my favourite.
