Why I'm Not Writing This Week 8/31

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 authors 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!



After a month of preparation, I finally got to submit my pitch to potential mentors for PitchWars this year. There's a lot of competition, so I'll be really lucky if I make it in this year. Eitehr way though, the preparation was great practice for my oncoming agent pitches. 

Agent Search

With Query season right around the corner (like, literally, next week), I've been aggressively research agents to see if I can find someone great to represent my book. It's taken up a lot of my time recently, but hopefully it will pay off! 


Jane the Virgin

On Netflix this week, I've been catching up on Jane the Virgin, which I first started watching last year. I didn't expect to like such an over-the-top dramatic show, but it's so well written and complex. I love Jane and especially the other characters we've gotten to meet over the seasons.

Puppy In The Office

My job let me bring Pluto into the office this week. It was definitely a unique experience, taking care of him while doing my job, but it was also a lot of fun. Hopefully we'll get to do it again sometime soon!
