Not Teaching: Week 6

We’re almost halfway through August; three weeks until Labour Day. I’m still actively procrastinating on recap writing by doing more messing around with serial writing. Some days it feels it can go either way, then it doesn’t... hoping that on some level, I decide I can’t put off the recap stuff indefinitely.

The personified math comic has been officially shelved, updates will be sporadic. I coded tags for the current series into “Google Analytics” on Aug 4th and (as I thought) Blogger was lying. There are days (like last Wednesday) with zero views. After five years.

There’s been TONS more activity with my serial this month (which is perhaps why I’m so motivated to keep working on it). I’m not sure if replying to various comments necessarily counts as writing items, but it’s making me realize I’m a slow writer, as compared to what I consider to be “average”. Also a slow reader. I seem to need breaks.

Item counts run Sunday (August 7) to Saturday (August 13).

Step Count: About 50,700.
I made a point of walking to Yoga both times this week, which popped me over 10,000 on Thursday. Which is good because it rained most of today (Sat) so I didn’t get my 7,000.

Desk hasn't changed, have this pic instead.

Writing/Art Related Items (from Sun to Sat):
 -Wrote, drew and set the math comic for last Monday
 -Started editing T&T into Book 4. Carving eps up into 4 parts, not 2.
