April has begun, which means Camp NaNoWriMo is underway. In the past, I have tried and failed to do these tight deadlined contests. In short, the point of these sorts of things is to write more. Period.

Without fail, the months they fall (April and November) are my busiest. This time though, I want to focus on creating a writing habit. Often, I have an hour or two of just idling, and this month I am confident I can use that spare time to solidify the habit.

Already, I am noticing my focus is stronger. Today and yesterday, I spent about 30 minutes to an hour writing prompts on Reddit. The results were well received, and I can see where I am building my skills.

Starting tomorrow, I’ll use prompts to warm up, and the second half of my hour or so will be focused on working on projects I have left lingering. I have a few books I want to finish before I get to the new stuff.

Time to get to work.
