Why I'm Not Writing This Week 9/7

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!

Labor Day!


I took Monday off from my day job to enjoy Labor Day. I spent most of it editing my novel and doing some work anyways, but I also got to take a bath and eat junk food and watch movies. It was definitely a relaxing day! 


My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary this weekend. We went back to the aquarium that hosted our wedding, hung out at our favorite barcade and had dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse. It was a really fun day and great way to celebrate our first year together. 


Agent Search

With my first few pitches out and #Pitmad this weekend, I guess this Query thing really is happening! It's both exciting and terrifying to finally have my work out in the real world waiting for feedback. The wait, however, is pure torture.

Harry Potter

To help take my mind off the craziness of my query journey, I've been watching Harry Potter movies every night. It's been great to relive some of my favorite childhood stories, even if I've watched them about a thousand times already.
