Why I'm Not Writing This Week 8/30

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. 


Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood

It’s time for my family’s annual rewatch of the all-time greatest TV show, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. You can’t find better a better plot, better plot twists, better characters and better sense of humor than this beautiful anime. Even if you’ve never watched Japanese animation, I highly recommend checking out FMA.

Rough Week

I’d had a hard time of it lately. I’m not quite sure what the general cause is, but I do know there are a lot of things pushing pressure on me. I hadn’t really noticed that this was affecting my day-to-day light, but I’m really lucky to have friends in my personal and work life who are willing to point this out to me and call me out when I’ve been a jerk. Thanks everyone.

Land Shopping

My husband and I are looking to buy some property nearby. We have a place scouted out that we really love, but are trying to also keep our options open. We’d love to find a beautiful, secluded place to build a custom home and find a place to chill out forever.


Baseball Game

We attended another baseball game, but this week we attended a game in Greensboro instead of our hometown, Winston-Salem. My husband’s company received some free tickets and we had a great time enjoying boxseats with his boss and wife. Thanks Tuttle Hardware again, for the great tickets!
