It's #NaNoWriMo Time Again

If I'm going to be honest with myself, being motivated to write is really difficult on my own. I tend to get easily distracted by any and everything. NaNoWriMo is the only time I ever really sit down to write. I find that every other month of the year I'm terrible at managing my time even though I'm not doing anything more in my daily life than I am during the month of November.

Today I discovered Habitica, which seems to be perfect for me.  I have quite a lot of love for RPGs and turning my productivity into a game seems like a great idea. I needed something to motivate me to write each day and I think I may have found it. I'll also try to participate in writing communities again and be active on forums.

As far as this year's NaNoWriMo goes, I already know what I'm writing. I'll be working on Clearwood Hunters #2 - The Broken Game (the tile may change), which is a complete rewrite of my 2010 NaNoWriMo project that I scrapped after getting the proof copy because in all honesty, it was terrible.

I have the plot pretty much reworked and all I have to do is outline now.

Hopefully I'll successfully finish NaNoWriMo this year .
