Monday, Tale Foundry Changes and Pending Problem-solving

If my calculations are correct, we should encounter payday this week. That same payday is also date night because other social shenanigans happening this Thursday.

I have paperwork to sort out and that will be happening on Wednesday. So my week is pretty much booked out already, and it isn't yet noon on Monday.

The Tale Foundry is changing how things go. Submissions happening on Discord. So my submissions will no longer be publicly available. I will be altering my Patreon posts about it accordingly. Unaltered story on the $5 tier, and the edited ones in the $1 tier.

When I have to alter them, of course.

Today will continue according to my usual standards. My own problem-solving shall be in attempts to do at least one Stencyl challenge.

I have been tired a lot recently. I blame the extended travel and exhertions in the most recent days. I'll give it a week or two before I blame it on being old. Or being on carbs for like four days in a row.

We'll see how I go on during proceedings.

Saturday, Change of PLNs

Adorable has been incapacitated in the wee small hours, so no parkrun this morning. I had to unriddle some banking nonsense before I commenced the horseshit this morrow.

At least the horseshit is sorted for the meanwhile.

Next problem: Having enough money -_-

I gotta do some effort to amend that nonsense. Including finishing the epic tale so I can get on with summarising all my extant novels so I can get them published on a higher scale.

Monday, Return to 'Normal'

The schedule is back in action as Beloved is free to do such. I had her in my bed for the first time in six firkin weeks. Needless to say that I am in a much better mood this morrow.

I have also warned Beloved not to do any more stunts.

I have drawn today's duck [four of nine] and if I keep going at this rate, I shall have to do some coding soon.

Le Dread.

I'm shit at programming and

Wednesday, Wordpress and NEWS

All going well, Beloved shall be returning to my abode next week. Probably.

She will want to binge some chapters since...

Chapter count: About to commence Ch 310

I've been busy despite the Lurgi.

I also need to figure out the time windows for arting. I shall sit somewhere comfortable and at least do a sketch layer for one duck. Possibly whilst semi-watching some comfort entertainment for the white noise.

I have some Wordpress to publish, some chapters to record, some plot

Friday, Ongoing PLNs

I'm doing my usual Friday nonsense. Unfucked the Catio already, and I'll be shortly prepping The Bikkie(tm).

Thereafter I shall be doing the Starters and such.

The wholemeal starter, known in house as Wilson, will be retiring to the freezer today. I have run out of the wholemeal flour to feed it with. Henceforth, only the "Instructions" starter will be part of my routine. Until I run out of flour.

When I am in a mood to make breads again, I

Long Monday, Soon to Change!

We have a new time slot for Game Night! It's going to be Game Morning. In which the game time slot moves to my 4AM on a Sunday.

I might actually have my weekends back.

Depending on whether or not it's okay to take off on whatever after 8AM.

I might still have to cancel the odd stream now and then.

BUT I also have to rearrange the schedule yet. Might be happening later.

Today, I am going to try and actually

Thursday, Painting Night

I needed a day away from expectations. Something to remind myself that it's okay to take my time with things. I am up to set dressing on a map and that's a stage of progress.

I will be likely inspired to go further, but I won't be going very far today because I'm off adventuring in meatspace, starting this afternoon.

I have to leave the house at half-past 3 to catch a train at 4 so I can get to a place

Thursday, PLNs of Schedule

The new schedule is looking a little like this:

3-7AM: Lounge around with Beloved, maybe read and maybe edit something.
8AM(ish): Getting ready for the day
9AM(ish): blogging and editing until Curse O'Clock
10AM: Curse O'Clock
11AM: Back to my bullshit. Stream set-up.
12PM: Streaming!
1PM-4PM: The rest of my bullshit
4PM-on: Relax time!

The last two depend on the ability of my back to put up with me doing stuff.

I'm going to spend my hour in the curse

Challenge #03657-J004: Lessons From Ozymandias

This was a Deregger world, as cold, as harsh, as they came. This....WAS... a Deregger world... so... why was the new, young owner of this empire holding out a hand to the lowly plebian child who was thin and crying in the street? Why was he... carrying the child and handing the child to the family... wait.. was he... helping them? Helping them???? And how in the he... was he making all those profits? This was a DEREG world! WAS. --

Friday, Stuff and Things

I have some writing entry(s) to read and judge. I have another week's worth of fics to tag for the app. I have to take the dressed map that I have just finished and prep it by learning how to fly my own OwlBear Rodeo setup [that promises to be fun].

There's also Starters to feed, bikkie to make and ingest, vinyl to sort, and a chapter to, perhaps, write.

I'm going to find out SOMETHING on bells and whistles with

Friday, Graduation & no more schedules

I am OFF the clock, as of tomorrow. No more waking up on purpose at fuck off in the morning. The only scheduled streams will be on Sunday/Monday as I have other people needing me on those days.

I might try streaming my day's activities, but for the first week at least, I will stream the story when I decide I have to get up.

There's a point in my waking up where I can't lie down any more, and I

Saturday & schedule change

At a later hour this morning, my love and I will be out walking on a Park Run. It's a thing. I need sunshine. I need exercise. I need to get out of the house in spite of the rising risk of plague.

You will take my face mask out of my cold, dead hands.

I also need to be social with people since I have effectively ghosted all of my old friends from high school. Find new friends. That sort of

Thursday, A Slight Change

I am now building dungeons in DungeonDraft. Which is mouse drawing rather than manipulating nonsense around and cussing a lot. Theoretically, it will be an easier time for me, and I shall see where the RageQuit Boundary is.

AFTER I tag a week and find 250 more words for the 2K summary.

And maybe during my album sorting because multitasking is my life.

Music makes work go quicker.

And after Chaos returneth home, I should nap so I have some energy to

Sunday, Day 0, The Big Reveal

Plague news: Two new cases, both imports. Fifty-one total active cases, with seventeen in hospital. None in the ICU.

Now for the moment you've all been waiting for. The reveal.

The love of my life, my partner in crime, my soulmate, lifemate, and personal world's best cuddle-buddy has come out as a trans woman. I will no longer be using 'they' to refer to her, but I'm still maintaining the lack of names for safety reasons.

We're in for a wild ride

Almost Done!

I've been doing 1K a day so I have all the more time for other projects and worldbuilding for my next WIP.

Speaking of WIP's, I have made a beginning on editing Ep4 of Inter-Mission. Which means I'm one episode closer to actually publishing these mofos. If I put them out on non-game-night Fridays, I have an occasion I should easily remember.

Should is not is. In this case, 'should is not will'. It's not a guarantee, it's more of a hope.
