Why I'm Not Writing This Week 12/22

Welcome to "Why I'm Not Writing." We all know that the only thing writers like doing better 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. 

Gift Wrapping

Is there anyone in the world who actual enjoys wrapping Christmas presents? I'm so bad at it. I tear the paper, I can never figure out how to fold down the sides and I always use too much tap. I just assume use bags. If anyone wants to come over to my house and wrap the rest of these for me, I'll pay you in wine. 



This week, I got approved as a professional reader on NetGalley.com . I'll get free e-books in exchange for reviews. I already reviewed a few books that I'll be reading and reviewing in the upcoming week. If you want to know what's coming up next, you can follow me on Goodreads or check in on my Home page

Winter Solstice

I guess that means that it really is Winter. In addition to being just a sad and short day, yesterday also marked the start of my least favorite season. The good news it that the days are only going to get longer from here. If only that meant it would also get warmer...

Author Search! 

I'm currently looking for Young Adult Fantasy writers and agents to promote and interview in the upcoming weeks. If you're an author, agent, publisher or know someone who is, please reach out to me via my contact page. I'd love for us to work together.
