Why I'm Not Writing This Week 8/17

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. 



I'm still looking for author to participate in my Indie Author Spotlight. This gives independently published authors the chance to have their book exposed to thousands of new readers every month. As this is our first month, your chances of being chose will be much higher than any other month. So don't wait and  check out my page!

Trivia Night

Daniel and I went to our first trivia night with out friends. Team "One Time At Band Camp" performed valiantly if not a little bit ridiculously at times, but we ended up placing 8th out of 22 teams, so I was pretty happy with our first time! 

MCU Movie Marathon

We've been on a superhero kick lately and have been rewatching our favorite movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the past we've watch the movies in order, but this time we're just jumping around to watch as we want. It's been a pretty fun week!


Pitch Wars Wishlist

In anticipation of Pitchwars at the end of the month, I've been going through the list of potential mentors to find the perfect people to work with. I started with 25 people who I thought may be interested in my novel and have now narrowed it down to 6. I still have some more work today but the end is in sight!

Doctor's Visit

This morning, I had to go into the doctor for my annual check up. While I know I need to go and get check ups every year, I hate it so much. Being in a doctors office, getting my blood drawn, asking awkward questions, always gives me so much anxiety. Things went well, luckily, and I'm spared from that trip for another year.
