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.
This week, I took some time away from my computer and off my desk to sit out by the pool with my sister in law. We drank Rose, soaked in the water and bathed in the sun. It's was the perfect day!
Great Time With Friends
In addition to hanging out at the pool, I also spent some great time with friends over the week. They came over to my house and played Cards Against Humanity. I went over to their house for Sangria and great chats. I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's always good to take time away from your work to enjoy fellowship with friends.
Lions Club Meeting
My husband and I attended a free dinner this week put on by The Lions Club of Stokes County, North Carolina. They're an amazing organization that does work for the blind in the area, making events and venues more accessible and helping underprivileged in the community purchase eye glasses. If you have a chapter in your area, you should consider attending a meeting or making a donation.
Sick, Sick, Sick
I feel like I've been falling apart lately! I'm usually so healthy but it seems like lately I've been sick every week. This week it's a runny nose, sore muscles and an upset stomach. I'm hoping to take the weekend to sleep, hydrate and recuperate.
I've had a lot of people reach out to me lately asking to write posts for the blog. As a reminder, I'm always happy to host guest writers. If you're interested, please reach out to me via my contact page and I'll let you know the details!
