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.
With Camp NaNoWriMo ending, I’ve been in a bit of a writing hangover. It was an exhausting challenge this time around, so it’s been nice not think about this story for the week. Instead, I’ve spent my free time bingeing movies and TV shows and just enjoying the lack of upcoming deadlines.
Tuca & Bertie
One of my binge-watches this week was a new series from the creators of my favorite show, Bojack Horseman. This show is much different from its sister show. It’s more geared towards young woman than Bojack, but has all the heart and social consciousness. It’s a delightful show that will have you laughing, crying and begging for another season by the time you get to the end.
Helping Out At Younts Vineyard
Twice in the week, my husband and I have been helping out at a local vineyard that our friends family owns. We’ve helped out with planting new vineyards and bottling a new batch of wine. It’s been a lot of fun to spend time with our friends and help out with a local business.
We have a huge vacation planned in November, traveling down the Rhine river. Everything is already planned out and ready to go, but its getting closer every day and I am getting more and more excited. We’re finally getting the detailed nailed down and I literally can not wait.
Great Books Coming Up Soon!
In the rest of the spring and summer, I have more amazing books and authors lined up for review and interviews. So please stay tuned over the next few weeks if you love Young Adult books or just want to learn more from some of my favorite authors.
