And it’s time for another  Scrum style standup!  OK it’s weekly, and I prefer them daily but that’s a bit much.

First a note – I had a nasty allergy attack around Thursday which held a few things up.  I’m overall on time/ahead of my plans but it was annoying

So what have I done the last week?

  • Way With Worlds Minibook #1: Editor had a bit of a delay, so I expect to get things in a few days.
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #5: Got actually 10 questions written.  I find more and more these are best written in large amounts.
  • Way With Worlds Marketing: The bookmarks came.  They are awesome.  Let me strongly recommend Club Flyers.
  • Seventh Sanctum Spotlight: I held off on this when some allergies hit.  I’ll probably start them off in a week or so.
  • Professional: Two professional meetups, they were awesome.  I really enjoy the “Agile Crowd” here in the valley.
  • Social: Bad movie event was great.  We saw “Mac And Me” which was hideous, but before that watched “Misfits” which was good.
  • A Bridge To The Silent Planet:” A bit harder than I expected.  It’s about 1/4 plotted with some outlines out to the end.  It’s becoming a bit more of a small novel – neither a doorstop nor a novella.  Which I realized is what I want.  However it’s a bit hard to shake the rust off so its’ slower than I wanted – and the allergies didn’t help.

What am I going to do this week:

  • Way With Worlds Minibook #5:  Write more of course.
  • Seventh Sanctum Spotlight: May or may not do this.
  • Professional: One professional event this week.
  • Social: Got a barbecue and otherwise will work on creative projects.
  • “A Bridge To The Silent Planet:” I plan to finish the plot outline this week.
  • General: Some basic chores and such.

Challenges and blockers:

  • The allergies hit hard.  I might delay a few things unless these clear up in the next day two.  Expect a possible “revised sprint.”
