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.
Grace & Frankie
My husband and I started up the newest season of Grace & Frankie this week. We’re pretty late in picking up the new season, because we’ve been busy watching Hulu recently, but it was well worth the late. In this season, our favorite old ladies are into more shenanigans and craziness and we’re totally here for it!
Had to get my car inspected this week, since it’s registration is expiring at the end of the month. My husband usually does this, but since I was off work yesterday, I decided to take it in. Luckily, everything went fine, but, goodness gracious, having a car is a pain.
After organizing my whole house and my cat, I decided it was time to get my business more organized as well. So I finally have a separate bank account for work AND a budget AND a plan for my goals this year. High five me!
As I’m exploring more options for staying organizing and prioritizing myself and my business this year, I started researching co-working spaces to use, since I don’t have space for a real home office. I tried out Fearless, a Winston-Salem based co-working space for women entrepreneurs and had an incredibly productive day.
Taking Time For Me
With all the work I’ve been doing lately, I’ve been trying also work hard to make time for myself. I now have some added drama going on (as if everything else wasn’t enough), so I’m reminding myself often to take care of my own mental and physical health. Let’s just hope I can keep it up.
