Why I'm Not Writing This Week 8/10

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 launched my brand new, Indie Author Spotlight, which will feature one Independently Published novel each month. If you're interested in being put in the running for the spot in September, check out my page!

Rate Your Story Contest

This week, I submitted my manuscript to RateYourStory.org 's annual Awesome Openers Contest. If you're a writer with a published manuscript, looking to put a few credentials under your belt for your query letter and interested in donating to a good cause, check out their content. The deadline is August 15th. 

Healthy Living

My husband and I have been trying lately to live a bit healthier, since our blissful marriage has made both of us put on some weight. We've been trying to drink more water, eat smaller portion and go to the gym. It's exhausting... 

Sugar Rush

This week on Netflix, we've been watching Sugar Rush, another one of those baking competition shows. It's a pretty good show for background noise and some of the creations are amazing!  

Christopher Robin

I got to see Christopher Robin over the weekend with my sister-in-law. I've loved Winnie the Pooh since I was little and was both excited and terrified to see the movie. But, it was beautifully done and incredibly touching.
