There’s a thing that happens sometimes on Sunday evenings, where I suddenly realized that I haven’t opened my bullet journal for about two days and that my weekend to-do list in it is mostly blank. That’s not a shortcoming of the bullet journal system; it’s served me very well for the near-year I’ve been using it and has been an Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Another Kind of Vacation.
Disclaimer: this post contains mild productivity-bragging. If you’re a writer and feeling bad about your level of productivity: don’t! You are doing your best! I am super lucky that right now my health bar is at full and my calendar is empty, which let’s me focus a ton of time on this. I brag on only because my productivity makes Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Personal Record(?)!
Wow. I am one week back into my blogging and already I am back to my old habit of, at intervals, pretending that it’s Monday on Tuesday. Well, I had a good reason this time because last night when I remembered that it was Monday, I didn’t have much energy left with which to do things, and I was left Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to a Time-Honored Tradition (no, 2!)
I was not particularly happy with my progress last week. I did get a few things done, but not as much as I would’ve liked. Here’s what I did: Wrote for 8h. 2/3 of my goal. I am not pleased. I wrote a short piece for Flash Fiction Friday! It was a little spur of the moment piece, but I Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Basically Last Week of School
My cold is still going strong. Well, strong-ish, and slowly diminishing thankfully. It put a bit of a damper on my writing progress last week, but hey… now is a new week. But first, last week in review: I spent about 12 hours writing or on writing-related activities. Less than I’d hoped, but more than I expected by week’s end. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Taking It Up A Notch
The past week wasn’t a great week, writing-wise. I only managed 6h out of my intended 7, and even that’s while rounding up if I’m being honest. I barely touched my conlanging, and gave myself a pass on Flash Fiction Friday because I was exhausted and empty-headed. I did work a fair bit on my #12for12stories February story, though. It’s coming along, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – New Effort
Last week wasn’t great, writing wise. I was busy, I was tired, and I also planned my time badly. So what I ended up doing was this: Spent about 6h on writing. Disappointed about that one. Posted for Flash Fiction Friday. Picked a story for my #12for12stories short, but didn’t look at it yet. Had a crit group meeting, productive as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Bit of a Slump
So… I got fuckall done this week. But instead on dwelling on that, and the reasons why, I’m going to focus on all the things I did do, not this past week but the whole past year. A bit of a recap, to remind myself that I am in fact moving forward and getting stuff done even when it doesn’t feel like it. So, in Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – 2015 in Review
So, today I went back to my day job. I was ambivalent about it, but now that I’m back it mostly feels good. I’ve missed my colleagues! The only real bummer is it leaves less time for my creative work. With that in mind, I’ve revised my “productivity block” system to get a little more out of the days (two Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work
That’s right, folks, I still haven’t looked into the Print-on-Demand thing. I should probably stop saying I will, and just let ya’ll be pleasantly surprised when I actually do it. So, what have I done this week? Well, this: Not a very productive week, as you can see. I had this freelance project I was working on, which was a lot more Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – No P-o-D, but lots of creative energy!
