Steve’s Update 6/26/2017

(This column is posted at,, and Steve’s Tumblr)

It’s my weekly Scrum style standup for my audience.  I also am going to try to focus a bit more on what it delivers to you.

So what have I done the last week?

  • Way With Worlds Minibook #1: This is now queued for publication!  So you’ll be getting it ready very shortly!  I also need reviewers.
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #6: Writing but frankly – not enjoying it.  I’ve got more on that below.
  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” I kid you not, Chapter #1 is in draft form and I’m editing it now.  I’ll be looking for prereaders in a few days!  So hit me up!
  • Blogging: Queued up a new blog post for tomorrow on Agile methods.
  • Other: Not much else to be blunt, lots of chores and catchup and a few other things.

What am I going to do this week:

  • Way With Worlds Minibook #1: I’m going to get that out this week.  I’ll post alerts of course and will be letting people know via my newsletter and usual posts.
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #6:  See below.
  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” Get Chapter #1 to being editable.  Then I’ll make it available!
  • Writing: I have one or two more posts to do on writing.  I am in a regular cadence here.
  • Sprint Planning: Time to plan the sprint for July!


  • Some friends are moving, and though I now don’t think it’ll take any time, I don’t know.
  • As of Way With Worlds Minibook #6 I am actually kind of tired of writing these.  I may take a break this month to regroup as it doesn’t have to be finished for awhile.  I’ve written five of these over the years already!  I may poke at it now and then but it’s not scheduled – it’s a stretch goal.
