After the election debacle, I had a conference in Arizona, both of which seriously derailed my progress early on and I was never able to recover (emotionally or otherwise).
So here we are, it's December 1, and I knew about a week and a half ago that it wasn't in the cards for me this year. I still very much plan to write throughout the year because if there's one thing I learned from this year's attempt, it's that I feel like a better person, a more fulfilled individual, when I'm actively writing something new.
I downloaded the app "Streaks" on my phone and I've set it up so that I need to write 3 times per day for at least 5 days a week and it's helping me make it a habit.
So hopefully I'll have myself more prepared next November, because I truly love the whole experience of NaNoWriMo.
Until then, I'll be back often with random updates on my life.
