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.
INDIE AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT
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!
My work for my day job sent me to Richmond, Virginia this week to help train new employees. I worked long, long hours every day, but got to stay in a beautiful hotel and eat delicious meals every night. Overall, a pretty good trip!
So. Much. Editing!
Instead of writing much this week, I've been aggressively editing. I got feedback from a few of my betareaders, so I've been trying to implement their thoughts and suggestions as much as I can. It's been an exhausting process but I'm so thankful to have some extra eyes on this draft.
Cocktails and Books
I was so excited last weekend to hang out with a friend I don't get to see often at the Footnotes bar and Bookmarks bookstore in Winston-Salem. We had delicious drinks and browsed for books for hours. It was an awesome day!
Our little kitten Toulouse was neutered this week. We've been showering him with attention and kisses after his surgery, but he doesn't seem to even notice. He's still running around crazy and hyper as ever.
