2017 is over. And, like… phew! I feel like that’s all I can say about it when it’s been a bad year for me but so much worse for so much of the world. So instead, let’s talk about 2018! As the regular reader of this blog knows, I like goals. I find them helpful both in visualizing my future, Continue reading Writing Goals for 2018 + First Twice Fortnightly of the Year
Why are these weeks so weird? I keep realizing it’s Sunday or Monday and I’ve simultaneously done a bunch things but also not all the things I wanted to but also that I have no idea how many hours I have been writing this week. I have NOT been keeping track! I have also not read through my upcoming Patreon Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – What is Even Happening?
Last week was a weird one, y’all. I thought I’d done good planing for my writing goals, in terms of both hours and tasks. Yet somehow, I managed to do almost all my hours (9½ out of 11, even though I didn’t have my stream for computer reasons) but have several tasks that I didn’t even touch on. Those included, unsurprisingly, making Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Bad Planning?
Last week, specifically the night between the 28th and the 29th of September, marked an irregular milestone in my life. Exactly 1001 days earlier, on January 1st 2015, I set out to complete a list of 101 goals. I had spent the last few weeks of 2014 composing it on a website called DayZeroProject, which I’d heard about it from Continue reading Tool Tips – The 101 Things in 1001 Days List
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!
