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.
The new Harry Potter game came out this week and I'm unhealthily obsessed. I stayed up most of the night last night, just randomly pressing the screen hoping to find some more energy. It combines my love of Harry Potter and my love of stupid mobile games. This is not gunna be good...
Riverrun Film Festival!
We're in the second week of the Riverrun International Film Festival. This week we went to a few parties with stars, dinners with producers and saw some amazing films. We saw a document about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a document about the Power Glove, a series of weird short films, and a hilarious story about blue records. I'll be out of town this last weekend so the film festival is done for me, but still going on through Sunday!
This week was the last full week of Camp NaNoWriMo. I'm about 3,000 words behind and a weekend full of activities and travel. So I'm really hoping I'm going to be able to catch up and meet my goal of 30,000 words by the end of the month.
Brand New Phone!!!
I've had the same refurbished Galaxy phone for about three years, so this week, for the very first time, I upgraded to a brand new phone. I now have a Google Pixel 2 and I love it. Great battery life, beautiful camera and unbeatable features. A+!!!
I've been following this show since it started in 2011. Recently the last full season aired on Netflix and the real last season aired on TV last week. I can't believe its coming to an end but I can't wait to see the ending!
