Why I'm Not Writing This Week 9/14

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!


Hurricane Madness

Hurricane Florence has been all anyone here in North Carolina has talked about all week. While we don’t expect to be hit directly by the storm, we’ll probably lose power for a while and get hit with some heavy rains. But, don’t worry! We’re super prepared.

Rock & Mineral Show

Every year, my husband and I go to our local Rock & Mineral show. We were able to even take a few friends with us this year. We bought a geode, a root bowl and chain and charms for a necklace. It was a ton of fun!

Kim’s Convenience

I’ve  recently started watching a Canadian sitcom called Kim’s Convenience, about a Korean family running a convenience store. There is a diverse and exciting cast with hilarious story lines and witty dialogue. I’m loving it!



With my second week of queries, I also got the first of my rejections. They stung a little bit, but I’m not feeling discouraged yet. Still lots more agents to hear back from! I’m mostly grateful for my family and friends who are doing such a great job of supporting me.
