I'm really sad that I wasn't able to produce anything for NaNoWriMo this year. The new job at the beginning of the month definitely threw me through a loop where I couldn't really focus on my writing pursuits. But it did teach me one thing I absolutely have to do if I want to be a consistent writer.
Making time for writing was not something I was worried about before because I worked a job where I didn't have a lot of hours. I could just write whenever I felt like and still get a considerable amount of it done. Now that the opposite is true, I just have to work a little harder to get my writing done, especially considering the plethora of ideas that flood my head.
What's going to surprisingly help is having a job that involves prioritizing and some organizational skills. Practicing those skills on a daily basis are only going to help me organize my nerdy pursuits, which many of them involve writing. Especially this job.
I hope some of your readers were much more successful in your writing pursuits in the month of November than I was. I do know next November I will be participating in NaNoWriMo and will friggin' succeed!
