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.
Last week was a weird week. Busy but not wildly so, but my mood was a bit all over the place. I only managed 6 out of my 9 hours of writing, largely because I had some kind of motivation crash on Sunday and just ended up watching the Gilmore Girls special all day instead. So… That’s unfortunate. I think Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Managing my Time Management
Oh my god, you guys, I did it! 20 hours of writing or writing-relevant work (research, editing, and in this case: conlanging!) in one week! I’m so proud of me! Yay! Okay, so I did stay up until about 2am last night even though I had to be at work early-ish today but… worth it! I probably wouldn’t have managed if Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – 20/20!!!
As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been brainstorming a bit about the future of the Orryn series lately and I have to tell you… at this point I am virtually swimming in ideas. It seems I can barely turn around without coming up with some new aspect I want to explore, a new theme or incident, a new perspective or reaction from one Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – So many ideas!
I realized today I have made a fatal error in my time management lately. My original plan was: three days for day job, two for studying and working on my thesis, one for writing and one day off (with, of course, the option of poking any of those things a bit extra on the other days once goals had been Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Re-re-re-restructuring my time
Yes, that’s right, I now have a Patreon page. Check it out! I’ll be honest: I don’t really have a plan, and I don’t quite know what I’m doing. But hey… sometimes you just gotta go for it! As I’ve mentioned, for the next six months or so, University will be my main priority and writing will get less time allocated to Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – I’m on Patreon!
Ho, boy! I do not feel like someone on vacation. Technically I’ve been off since Friday but the weekend, including Friday and today have been super busy, both with day job things and other things. Still, tomorrow I should get the last of the urgent day job stuff and some cleaning out of the way, and then I’ll be able to settle Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – My Vacation Starts When?
I’ve been trying to get back to writerly stuff this week, and I’ve been somewhat successful. I’ve written a little most days, including posting a Flash Fiction Friday post. I’ve done a bit of planning for the spring, but not quite enough or in an organized enough manner. I’ve also gotten my butt out of the wagon with regards to Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Gearing Up, Counting Down
Last night I handed in a long overdue assignment. It didn’t turn out very well, but I’m holding out hope that it turned out well enough and that I won’t have to re-do it. Next week I’m moving on to the next module on my to-study list, but this week I’m giving myself a bit of a break from Uni. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Worldbuilding Week!
Eek, it’s almost April! I’m so excited for Camp. I’ll be honest, though, there’s another story that’s occupying most of my writerly thoughts right now so I’m a bit worries about whether I’ll be able to switch gears to my Camp project. But I’ve done it before so it should be okay. So, what have I been up to. Well, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Calm before the Camp
