Why I'm Not Writing This Week 12/21

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. 


Holiday Giveaway

TODAY IS YOUR ABSOLUTE LAST CHANCE TO ENTER MY HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY! You have three weeks left to join to win a full manuscript critique, a free website redesign and a month’s worth of coaching calls. Just click here and submit your email address. I’ll be picking a winner tomorrow, the 22nd.

Christmas Madness

The pressure is really on this week to get all my presents bought and wrapped before my husband and I leave to visit family tomorrow. On top of that, we’re coordinating work partys, events with friends and buying gifts for each other. This week has really just flew buy and I’m looking to taking a deep breath and relaxing once everything is over.

Last Week Tonight

Lately, Daniel has really been into watch John Oliver and Last Week Tonight, so we’ve been binging old episodes of the show on YouTube. We love mixing comedy and news while learning something new with each episode we watch.


As I mentioned above, we’ll be traveling to see family this weekend, so we have a lot of work to do before we leave. Cleaning, laundry, packing, double checking that we actually packed everything and arranging for someone to watch our animals while we’re gone. But I’m really looking forward to seeing my family soon!


Time Off

Please note that I’ll be taking the upcoming week 12/22 through 12/31, off to spend time with my family and get ready for some of the updates coming in 2019. I will still have access to my email and you can reach out via my contact page, but my response time will be delayed or I may wait to respond to you until after my hiatus.
