Why I'm Not Writing This Week 2/1

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. 


January Special

It’s officially February (somehow) so my 50% off sale is now over. But don’t worry, you can still take advantage of the great service I have to offer, like manuscript editing, writing coaching and website design. Check out my new Services page and additional Submission and Request pages.


I got my car detailed this week, inside and out. While I always love keeping my house clean, I never think about my car. So, at work, when a mobile detailing company through, I signed up for slot and had my car cleaned from hood to trunk. It’s oddly satisfying to drive in a completely clean car.


This Wednesday #SFFPit event took place on twitter. This pitch event is much like #PitMad, but is only for Science Fiction and Fantasy writers. As always, this is such an amazing way to meet and network with fellow writers, as well as do some research into literary agents. Thanks #SFFPit!

Still Sick Kitty

Following up from last week, we took Gatsby back to the Vet. He’s still got some eye inflammation, but it turns out it might be due to allergies instead of an infection. That’s much more manageable, as long as we can figure out what exactly it is he’s allergic to…

Healthy Cooking

When my husband and I went grocery starting this week, we made an effort to pick up low-fat options for our meals this week. So far, we’ve had ramen, chicken salads, almond butter cookies and spinach and egg breakfast sandwiches. YUM!
