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.

We got hit with a nasty wintery mix of weather over the weekend. Everything was covered in ice for almost 48 hours and a bunch of trees went down. We lost power for over a day, but luckily didn’t have any property damage like some of our neighbors did.
As part of my fitness journey this year, I tried my first cycling class at our local YMCA. It kicked my butt… But it was a fun experienec that definintely pushed me more than I’d ever push myself on the stationary bike in the gym. I hope to go back next week!
It’s been a hectic week all around, but the craziest part, by far, was a call I got from my mom on Saturday morning about a family emergency. While I don’t want to go into too much detail about it publicly, it certainly has dominated my time and thoughts this week. It looks like everything is on the up and up, though, so I hope everything will calm down soon.
I finished Will & Grace this week and moved on to Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I’ve been wanting to watch this show since their crossover episode on New Girl. I’m only a few episodes in so far, but it's a really fun and distracting show and I can’t wait to watch more.
