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.
Riverrun Film Festival!
Yesterday kicked off the Riverrun International Film Festival in Winston-Salem, my favorite time of the year! Over the next 10 days, I'll be enjoying indie films from all around the world, meeting the filmmakers and stars, and hanging out with fellow film lovers. I can not wait!
Technically, this was the third week of Camp, but writing-wise I'm still stuck on the second week... Yikes. I really need to buckle down and catch up this weekend or I'm not going to make it!
Really Needed Haircut
Yesterday, I was getting ready for work and fussing with my hair. It was just a big, thick, curly, ugly mess. So I made some frantic calls and google searches and was able to get an appointment in for that evening. Crisis averted, my hair is at least somewhat decent now.
A Year In The Life
A few weeks ago I started rewatching Gilmore Girls for about the 10th time, but this week I finished up the original series and started the Netflix sequel, A Year In The Life, which I only saw when it first premiered. I really forgot how well down it is and how much I enjoyed seeing all the characters again.
GOODBYE STUDENT LOANS!
Today I officially finished paying off my Master's degree student loans. With the help of a tax return, work bonus and a little bit of leaning on my husband, I made a huge payoff and I am done! To say I feel accomplished is a bit of an understatement.
