Daruma Dolls and NaNoWriMo

Not much has happened on the writing front the last few weeks by way of words actually written, but I guess that’s what happens when you have a teething baby.

In the mean time, one of my writing groups has cut back from submitting once a week to once a month for now. In some ways, that’s a bummer for me since I really enjoy writing groups and was using it as a motivation to actually write… in theory anyway. :/

I also learned about Japanese daruma dolls. The basic idea is that you color in one eye when you make a wish/set a goal. When you get that wish or complete that goal, then you color in the other eye. I thought about getting one, but I know that’s just gonna be a thing that sits around collecting dust afterwards. So instead I printed off a picture of one and I’ll stick that in one of my writing binders with the draft of my current WIP (Work-in-progress). Maybe I’ll take a picture of it for the blog whenever I do finish writing.

And I’ve also been thinking about NaNoWriMo. I’d absolutely would love to complete all 50,000 words this November but that is looking like it’s going to be pretty hard to do with everything else I need to take care of. So, I’ll shoot for writing as many words as possible and if I do manage to get 50,000, then hurray! I did a successful NaNo! If not, then hurray! I still wrote!
