I only have two days left of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge, so I thought I would check in. I didn’t get much writing done over my Staycation, but I will say that I liked the quality of posts that came out of this week. It’s getting to the end of the challenge and I’m just now learning how to do this.
As I said at my check in last week, it’s getting so much easier to just sit down and write something. The plan after this challenge is to try and work on a novella that I have been kicking around for about a year now. We’ll see how well I do after I’m no longer posting the days work for everyone to see, but I’m optimistic.
As for the other goals on my Staycation, I really didn’t get the media server off the ground. That might be a project for this week. I do have a script that can set up a desktop computer for me, so that’s nice but I don’t have much worked out for a server. There’s really not a lot of work to do in setting up what I want to set up, you just have to sit down and do it. All the research is pretty much done.
I did start work on my first paper craft project. It’s a model of Spider Jerusalem from Transmetropolitan. The site I got it off of said it was an easy project, but I underestimated what learning this new skill was going to be like. You would think that cutting something out and folding it together would be relatively easy, but I don’t think I have the best paper and I know I don’t have the hobby knife that I really need to do this justice. So it’s been a rough go of it.
Today is the 28th day in a row that I have written. I know this because I have an app on my phone that I keep track of this with. That app also tells me that this streak is tied with a chain I did last year. That chain was the longest I had ever gone with writing every day. That means that if I write tomorrow, I will have written more times in a row than I have in my entire life.
See you tomorrow.
