Why I'm Not Writing This Week 8/23

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. 

Laundry Day (Week)

With the busy last few weeks I’ve had, every day this week has been laundry day, trying to catch up. Of course, I’ve done a lot of extra organizing on top of that, but it’s still taken an exhausting amount of time to work through. I’ll probably still have some to work through this weekend.


Jane the Virgin Season 5

I’m really excited that I got the chance to catch up with my BFF Lorena this weekend and we watched the last season of Jane the Virgin together. The show is a crazy, crazy ride, but well written, touching, funny, and straight up beautiful.


We bought a new blender, so I’m back on a smoothie kick. I’ve been having a smoothie for breakfast each morning and one with my lunch, sometimes by itself and sometimes with a sandwich/burrito. So far I’m feeling good and loving my drinks.

Monsoon Season

While we don’t have real monsoons here in Western North Carolina, it certainly has felt like it this week. Every evening, we’ve had blustering winds, dark grey skies and inches of rain. I’m lucky we haven’t had any power outages, home damage or leaks, but it has made life a bit hectic for the last week.

Open Call For Interview/Review Requests
