[logback-user] NPE when extending RollingFileAppender

I'm having some trouble getting my custom appender which extends RollingFileAppender working. I've got my logback config being read and can extend FileAppender w/o issues but when I switch over to RollingFileAppender, I get the following:
java.lang.NullPointerException: null
        at ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.RollingFileAppender.getFile(RollingFileAppender.java:122) ~[org.apache.sling.commons.log:4.0.0]

Here is my config:
<appender name="CUSTOM" class="com.mypackage.logging.CustomLogAppender">
<rollingPolicy class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.TimeBasedRollingPolicy">
<pattern>%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS} %-5level %logger{36} - %msg%n</pattern>

The only method that I override is writeout() as I needed to handle some particular events. Did I missing something obvious in terms of configuration? Any help is appreciated.
