Writing status update (#48)

Another month has flown by since the quarterly goals check that functioned as my last monthly report on my progress developing the Shine Cycle, so it’s time for an update on the last few weeks, which have seen a near-return to what I consider normal progress. Continue reading

2017 Goals First Quarter Report

It’s now a week into the second quarter of 2017, so since I set a goal to “After each quarter, assess progress and note any necessary amendments to goals in a blog post,” it’s time to consider how the year has gone in comparison to the goals I set.

2017 Goals First Quarter Report: Shine Cycle

2017 is now a quarter gone, as short a time as the past three months have felt, and since one of my goals for the year was to “After each quarter, assess progress and note any necessary amendments to goals in a blog post,” it’s time to do just that.

2016 Review, 2017 Goals

A new civil year begins tomorrow, and as in past years I’ll take this opportunity to take stock of the year that was and set goals for the year to come. I’ll focus on the my “magna opera” (the Shine Cycle, my fantasy series-in-preparation, and Strategic Primer) in additional posts early next week, but today, a look at “the rest,” starting with a review of the goals I set for myself a year ago.
