Why I'm Not Writing This Week 10/19

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. 


I'm still looking for authors to participate in my Indie Author Spotlight. This gives independently published authors the chance to have their book exposed to thousands of new readers every month. As this is our first month, your chances of being chosen will be much higher than any other month. So don't wait and  check out my page!


Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood!

FMA:B is my all-time favorite TV show. So much so that my husband, when he designed my engagement ring, incorporated symbols from the show on my ring. After watch a few less than stellar shows on Netflix lately, we fell back on our favorite to relax and revel in.

Author Mentor Matchup

While I unfortunately, did not make it into Pitch Wars this year, or even end up as a runner-up, I did apply for a similar program this week. Authormentormatchup.com is a smaller program available exclusively for Young Adult and Middle Grade authors. Fingers crossed…

Gym Time

My husband has been dragging me to the gym on the weekends lately. I hate exercising by he loves the gym and sitting on a stationary bike for an hour gives me time to read or watch Fixer Upper on HGTV. So I guess I can’t complain.



We’ve headed to the West Coast this week to explore, take a break from work and hang out with friends. One of my best friends from grad school, Josh, is putting up with us for a couple of days, then we’ll head to Vancouver and back to Seattle to see our dear Danielle.
