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.
1. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
It might be super childish, but I loved this game when it was on my Gamecube in the 2000s and I love it on my phone now. I'm attached to my phone constantly playing this. I'm sure my husband's annoyed, but he mostly just ignores it. If you play, my friend code is 2165 3316 275. You should add me and give me kudos because I spent an hour designing my campsite.
2. Psych: The Movie
I've always loved this how and I was so excited when they announced the movie. Unfortunately, I don't have cable but I was able to watch it online. It was beautiful and I'll probably watch it again this weekend.
3. Editing, Editing, Editing!!
I'm still getting tons of requests in for my editing special. Remember, all my rates are half off in December. If you want to take advantage make sure you get your request for a quote in soon as spaces are filling up.
4. 12 Nights of Wine
I got myself this Christmas gift for myself from Vinebox. I get a different glass of wine each night and so far they've all been delicious (try not to do the math for how early I started). There's still time to order your own Vinebox's 12 Nights of Wine or their wine subscription service.
5. Family Illness
I don't want to go into too many details here, but my husband's family has suffered a few illnesses. Please keep him and his in your thoughts, prayers or any other good karma you believe in.
