Welcome to "Why I'm Not Writing." We all know that the only thing writers like doing more than writing is avoiding writing. So every Friday I list five things that have distracted me from my writing that week.
I also encourage you to share with me what made you procrastinate this week by posting with #whyimnotwriting on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram, or share in the comments below. I'll feature my favorites with everyone here.
On Saturday we celebrated Daniel's 26th birthday. He's a little bit bummed to be over 25 and approaching 30 now, but we had fun nonetheless. Love you sweetie!
Part of our celebrations included a camping trip to Hanging Rock State Park. We set up our tent, made a fire, took a midnight hike up to the top of the mountain and enjoyed the cold air and view. It was a beautiful time!
After leaving our campsite, we immediately hopped on the Dan River and spent the afternoon tubbing. We had a great, relaxing time with our friends, enjoying the sun and nature.
With the addition of the new Friends and Trading features on Pokemon Go, Daniel and I have begun playing again. We original played when the game launched in 2016 and I fizzled out since we live in a rural area without much to do, but I'm excited to be back in the saddle, so if you want to be friends, please add me!
The first week of Camp NaNo is on! I'm trying to write 1000 words per day, which I've managed to do pretty much every day except July 1st, as I was a bit busy with all the camping and tubing and birthday adventures. So far, though, I'm happy with where I'm at and hoping things continue to get better.
