We had so much fun this week. My cousin is getting married this summer, so we were at a shower/get together for my cousin and her fiancé. Also happening this week was work on my son’s Cub Scouts adventure involving magic tricks, secret codes, and science. Part of this adventure required him to learn a trick and put on a magic show, complete with invitations and all. My aunt then decided he should do his magic show at the shower for the entertainment. And my Peanut did a wonderful job. He and my mom found a hat and a cape to go with his white shirt and black pants because that’s a magician’s uniform. Apparently, that’s what he took from the magician videos they watched while rehearsing for this show. My parents helped him learn three magic tricks, and he performed them well. We all had a great time with it.
My NaPoWriMo efforts have struggled, I regret to say. It all seemed so easy at the start of April. One poem a day for 30 days. I’ve done NaNoWriMo, writing at least 50,000 words in November. That’s an average of 1600-1700 words per day every day for the entire month. If I managed that successfully, how hard could one little poem a day every day for April be? Trust me, it ended up harder than it seems. I’m still like 10-12 poems behind. It’s crazy how challenging this has been even though the word count is so much easier to hit. Well, there is no real word count. Just a poem count. Yet, that’s been more of a challenge than the 1600-1700 words per day has been. I’m not giving up, though. It may be a challenge, but I’m still determined to see how close I can get to accomplishing the 30 poems in 30 days goal.
I want to end this Random Sunday post by saying thank you. Thank you to those of you who’ve found your way here for the first time. And thank you to all of you who’ve been here on more than once reading my words. I may or may never hit it big with what I write, and I’m okay with however it goes. Why? Because I’ve found such an awesome reading and writing community. I watch on various social media platforms and see how, for the most part, this community lifts each other up, supports each other, and is there for each other. Sure, we have our problems, like any community does. However, I know there have been many opportunities where people could tear each other down or look at each other as competition, but most of the time people don’t. We continue looking at each other as fellow adventurers on this crazy journey called books. So, thank you to all of you who make this community so awesome.
