So, I said several things that ended up not happening: I was going to try and have the entire month of November blogged ahead, and I was going to try to pull no NaNoWriMo. I ended up falling behind on both fronts because I've had some serious things change in my life
For the past several years, I've been working a swing shift at my job: running from noon until nine at night. It had some positives, like being able to sleep "in" every day, but it stole away my ability to engage in life in the evenings, since most things ended by the time I got out of work.
In the first couple of weeks of November, I accepted a position with a new company; it's been a big change: I'm back on "normal person" hours, I'm continually busy at work, and I have to depend on the bus to get me to and from work.
I'll talk about the bus part later, I have complicated thoughts that need to be unspooled.
All that upheaval in my life has left me searching for some kind of level, and that's left me unable to focus properly and get back to my writing. I'm coming home at night scatter-brained and tired. I don't like it, but I'm starting to get to the point of feeling some control again. I'm going to get back to blogging regularly, and I'll work on getting the third book's outline done.
