Welcome to "Why I'm Not Writing." We all know that the only thing writers like doing better 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.
1. Holiday Hangover
I love traveling and visiting family over the Holidays. There's great food, great conversation and great company. It's so relaxing and enjoyable to me. But then the bubble bursts and I have to get back to the real world on Monday. Sigh....
2. NaNoWriMo Is Over
Much like Holiday Hangover, NaNoWriMo hangover has already set in. We've reached the end of this crazy month and all that's left for our projects is tedious revision. Yuck. Instead of jumping into that, I've been lounging, eating junk food and watching a lot of TV.
3. Sick... Again...
Our house got struck by illness a couple of weeks again and it's happened again. I spent most of Monday in a NyQuil and fever induced daze in bed. Luckily that was the worst day, but I still have a sore throat. Nothing like answering the phone and sounding like a 70 year old smoker.
4. Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
If you have Amazon Prime, you HAVE to watch this show. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of the stuff that Amazon Prime Originals put out, but this one knocked it out of the park. It was released on Wednesday and I stayed up late into the night watching it. Probably not to the best ideal when you're recovering from a cold, but it was worth it.
5. Half Off Editing Services This Month
As a Post-NaNoWriMo special, all my of editing services are half off in December. I've already had requests come in, so if you're interested, head over to my contact page and give me the details about your project. I have a number of different packages available to fit every budget. This deal is only available first come first serve as my time allows, so don't take too long to reach out.
