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.
My annual Holiday Giveaway has concluded and the winners have been selected. Congratulations to the grand prize winner and the two runners up. Stay tuned for December next year and enter to win editorial, design and coaching prizes to help improve your writing.
I hope everyone who celebrates had a beautiful Christmas this year. I got to see almost everyone in my family and got to meet some new little family members for the first time. It’s been a beautiful holiday week, and I’m looking forward to the new year.
Will & Grace
My most recent Hulu binge has been the original Will & Grace series. It’s some of my friends’ favorite shows but I’ve never watched it before. So far, my husband and I are really enjoying the show, especially Karen and Jack.
Friend & Family Time
In addition to Christmas, most of my time has been spent hanging out with family and other loved ones. My favorite part of the holidays is hanging out with everyone, hearing stories about family members and just spending time together.
In addition to reorganizing my website, my blog schedule and some of my services, I’m also spending this week reorganizing my house. I’m clearing out closets, installing shelves and giving away extra stuff we don’t need. It’s been a lot of work, but I’m looking forward to having my house a bit more tidy.
