Self Care Mafia

What is the Self Care Mafia?

A group of former yakuza turning the world of writers and creators around, giving them some serious encouragement to take care of themselves in the Game of Tomes. We're good yakuza now!


What We Do

  • Loudly encourage Game of Tomes participants to put self care as a priority, especially during Game of Tomes and Tourney of Tales. The NanoWriMo events are wonderful and challenging. We don't want people to break themselves or burn out in order to accomplish lofty goals.
  • Give out specialized Gold Stars for outstanding self care. You never know where you'll see us. Remember we're watching!
  • New for April Tourney of Tales 2022: Black Market Popup Shops where you can show us you did a number of self care tasks, that can in turn be used as 'currency' to earn special collectable badges.

    The Self Care Mafia was the brainchild of ShyRedFox and her Kobun protector FoxWriter and was revealed to the world during Game of Tomes, November 2021. They formed the mafia and allowed members from all houses to join in on badgering GoT participants into taking care of themselves.  
    No more of this 'I burnt out' or 'I hurt myself' during NaNoWriMo as a badge of honor. It's not an honor, and we'll call you on it!

      February 26, 2022, Minor House Leader Shyredfox shocked the GoT community with the following announcement.
    Minor House Kitsune shall dissolve and descend into the chaos of what we always really were - sneaky yakuza. But we'll use our former bad ways to bring good as the Self Care Mafia.
    It was a hard choice. But Fox felt the health needs of the writing community were paramount.   Watch for a video announcement in April.

    We pack heat and cocoa. Take care of yourself, if you know what's good for you.
