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. I looked at the Shine Cycle on Monday and Strategic Primer on Wednesday; today, all my other goals. Continue reading

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. I’ll begin with my goals for developing the Shine Cycle today, and go on to the others over the course of this week. Since I haven’t managed a “writing status update” since the end of January, I’ll include those “monthly” goals today as well. Continue reading

Writing status update (#46)

For all that it feels in some ways more like a week has passed than a month, it’s been four weeks since my last report (on the second day of Christmas) on recent progress on the Shine Cycle, my fantasy series-in-preparation. In that time, despite the busyness that always makes Christmastide hectic, and despite being laid somewhat low by a cold last week, I did get some Shine Cycle development work done. Continue reading

Writing status update (#45)

It’s the second day of the Christmas season, but it’s also nearly a month and a half since my last update on my work on the Shine Cycle, my fantasy series-in-preparation.

For more specifics, let’s look at the goals I had set in mid-November: Continue reading

Year-end summary

As tomorrow is the First Sunday of Advent, this is the last day of the year on the Christian liturgical calendar, and so this week’s posts have looked back over what has happened on this blog in the last year. Monday I summarized posts related to the Shine Cycle, and Wednesday I briefly reviewed those relating to Strategic Primer; today we’ll look briefly over all the other posts that have appeared in this space since last year.

Strategic Primer assistive programs release, development report, and roadmap (0.4.9011)

It’s again been two months since the last snapshot release of the suite of assistive programs for players and Judges of Strategic Primer, and there are again some noteworthy new features, so it’s time for a new development report and snapshot release, which you can download from GitHub as usual. Continue reading

Writing status update (#44)

It’s been about a month since my last report on recent development of the Shine Cycle, my fantasy series-in-preparation. The month has not been as productive as I had hoped, but with the time for my usual year-end plans looming it’s time to see how I did this month. Continue reading
