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.
New Family Member
Last week, we received a tip that there was a very little kitten at our local animal shelter who was on his last week. We felt the call to pick him and bring him home. So, I'm really excited to introduce Toulouse, the newest member of our family.
Over the weekend, we threw a small get together for our friends. We celebrated some accomplishments, some birthdays and got ready to say goodbye to others. We had a ton of fun. It always makes me feel like we should throw events more often.
My mother-in-law celebrated her 50th birthday this week. Over the last few months, we've been planning a surprise party for her. We had BBQ, a bounce house and lots of friends and family members.
With Daniel's birthday coming up this weekend, I got him the one thing he hasn't been able to stop talking about for the last year. His switch arrived early and I couldn't stand waiting for him to open it up. He was so excited and has hardly put it down.
July is only 2 days away and with it comes the second session of Camp NaNoWriMo of this year. Interested in challenging yourself to write more next month? Then join me in my private cabin. We'll have daily quotes, weekly prompts and regular write ins. This is your last chance, so please contact me ASAP if you want to join.
