Corn Woman Spirit Doll is finished. I am grateful to have had her around this month.
She was the quite voice of encouragement every time worry got in the way of my focus.
November was all about writing the words. It was a personal challenge that might just benefit all of us! Yes I committed to NaNoWriMo just to see if I could write 50k words in a month.
and I can.
During the month, life stuff would come up and I'd get distracted by my problem solving, working myself into a tizzy and Corn Woman would remind me to write.
For example. It snowed.
Shoot! Ruby Gloom doesn't have a winter coat. I mean seriously how does it go from 49 and sunny to 29 and blizzardy in the matter of 12 hours. *oh yea, I'm in the Midwest*
Can we get her a coat and still have grocery money? If I go all out for Thanksgiving, will we still have enough for a Christmas tree? What about gifts?....
I'll spare you the details of my tizzy because it's not worth the time or energy.
It was Selu, Corn Woman, who redirected me, sending me back to the keyboards with the promise that writing was like planting corn; sowing seeds.
The now would be taken care of, she assured me. We had done the work to reap the benefits for now. I needed to do the work so that I could reap the benefits for later.
So I wrote. I won. I have yet to finish ~but~ I pledged to edit in January *that means I have until the end January to finish*
In the mean time, Groceries were bought, a winter coat was bought as well as new sock for the little guy, holiday shopping has been started and we're getting a tree next weekend.
