And as promised weekly updates, or “standups” on the projects I’m working on since I’m planning more Scrum style and loved Failbetter’s use of Scrum-style updates.
So what have I done the last week?
- Got the Color Generator to final beta. It’s basically ready to go, so I’ll check feedback, give it one more look-over, and call it done. I’ve learned a lot about language working on this one, lessons that’ll pay off in later generators.
- Way With Worlds Minibook #1: Is off to the editor. Unfortunately she has family visiting and broke a finger, but expects to be typing-worthy next week. I had no plans to use the edits until later anyway, so it won’t throw my plans off.
- Way With Worlds Minibook #5: I’m writing questions at my planned pace.
- Seventh Sanctum Spotlight: My plans to start promoting talent on the Sanctum are figured out, so I need to line up candidates soon – I’ve got a list.
- General: Also went to two meetups on writing and project management on top of some gaming. I think this new planning method is working out!
What am I going to do this week:
- Finish the Color Generator: I’ll integrate any feedback, do a final check, and consider it done.
- Way With Worlds Minibook #5: I’ll be writing more of this!
- General: Another professional event this week, gearing up to purchase a new laptop, some chores, and possibly cleaning a closet (you know those boxes you never unpack until years after moving?).
Challenges and blockers:
- No direct blockers, but I do have a concern about how to pace final edits on the Minibooks. My default plan is essentially do a final edit early in the month they’re released, but I wonder if that’d just become a drag and I should do them all at once. My gut take is I should do this, though I might have to up my writing pace – and really, that does sound like it’d turn into a drag.
