ROW80 ~ Wednesday Update, 7/6


Not sure how many Wednesday updates I’ll do, but I’m focused enough on Round of Words that I don’t have much in mind for a What Else Wednesday. So far, the week is going well, although I haven’t exactly focused on one project. I’m using Trello with the Pomello addon to track my tasks and time.

David P. Abbott in The Open Court:

  • Added front and back matter, though it isn’t in its final form.
  • Drafted the introduction.
  • Realized that my pictures were horked up. Fixed that and I have notion of what went wrong.
  • Added two more pictures to the last article and edited it to reflect the inclusion.
  • Worked on the cover.

Since I want to let the Open Court introduction sit and I was getting nowhere on the cover, I switched gears to organize One Ahead materials:

  • Gathered notes and made a timeline of “planned” stories. Funny thing, I had forgotten that I had written 15K-ish of materials last November which include some story beginnings.
  • Added tentative subtitles to the two stories to which I’ve done substantial work: “The Case of the Sorrowful Seamstress” and “The Case of the Horrid Haunting.”
  • Renamed files to include reference to the subtitle instead of order, because my writing order and chronology order don’t match.

Code Academy:

  • Worked on the remainder of my Python course.

Today, I think I’ll reread One Ahead: The Case of the Sorrowful Seamstress.

    You certainly have a lot going on this Round. Best of luck! I was so happy to read “because my writing order and chronology order don’t match.” Mine never do, either–I float all over the place, and I thought I was the only one who does that.

    And I’ll echo Caren’s thanks for the free books!

    I do think it is great how you’ve detailed your tasks and it is giving me lots of inspiration on the ROW80 ‘Blog Hop’. I tried Trello for a bit but couldn’t quite make it fit for me. When I’m hammering through a long piece of work I do find it a big help to use the Pomodoro technique and didn’t know the two could be combined.

      I change to-do apps about every six weeks, but Trello and I are finally getting along pretty well. There’s lots of ability to connect other things to it, which is interesting.
