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.
Preparing For Snow
We have our first big snow storm of the season predicted to hit on Saturday night or Sunday. When it snows here, everything shuts down, so we’re prepping now to make sure we’re prepared. That means making sure we have plenty of firewood, non-perishable foods and, of course, lots of wine.
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The second season of this awesome Amazon Prime show premiered this week. I’m only about halfway through it so far (damn that pest work!) but I am loving it. The actors are all amazing and the plot still feels fresh and fun.
Yesterday, I participated in my second #PitMad competition. I’m not sure if anything will come of it yet, but I’m still glad I jumped in. Events like these let me interact with other authors and learn from them, so even if it doesn’t lead to a published book, it was still a valuable experience.
With NaNoWriMo over, I’m focusing on my Fantasy series again. This week, I did some heavy edits to the first chapter and will be adding in some new scenes before sending stuff off to agents again this weekend. Wish me luck!
