In other news, my tarot_week community is totally getting featured in the LJ spotlight this week. The purpose of the community is to learn to read tarot by doing in-depth studies of a single card. I have done four cards already-- one card a week, and people post other discussion topics whenever they like. It is still small so there is not a ton of discussion, but I have really enjoyed what discussion there has been! It is also a good goal for me to see how many of the cards I can write mini-essays about without looking up references.

In kandigurl's writing challenge, I am at 6545 words in three days. That is counting only on the story I have been working on, not my tarot essay or this post or my roleplaying posts, which I am not sure should count. But it is pretty impressive, I am averaging over 2000 words a day, which is significantly more than I am used to.

Also, this weekend, I managed to get a bunch of stuff for my apartment, as one of my goals is to try to make my apartment homey and livable enough that I will be comfortable staying there for another year so I can save money and not pay a broker's fee. I am excited...I got two ottomans with storage boxes under the seats, some spice rack thingies and a rack for my bathroom, and some decorative mirrors. And rugs! I am excited.
