I cracked it a couple times before
Notes on week 925
- 925 8 oktober 2016 EN
With these weeknotes I publicly track and archive whatever it is I spend my time on.
This week1 I stayed at the Amsterdam Translators’ House, away from my family, with a simple task: finishing the Geometry Girl story. A huge luxury to be able to do so, and the days seemed to be a lot longer than normal. I walked through the city, thought a lot, took tons of notes; it’s been a while since I felt so at ease. And I took my work very seriously, starting with getting the right equipment: notebooks, post-its, markers, and big sheets of paper that I stuck to the wall.
At the same time, though, writing didn’t come easy. I feel like I have yet to crack how I’m going to tell this story (even though I cracked it a couple times before). Well, I still have another week at the Translator’s House!
It didn’t help that I had another big task running through the week: finishing my new Creative Industries Fund NL grant application, for which I had to get five letters of intent from involved parties. I did it in the end, though. Hurray!
What else? I…
- Worked on the Geometry Girl app a bit, and planned for my trip to the Frankfurter Buchmesse in two weeks’ time.
- Got the sketched page layouts for the Antegods comic from Robin Keijzer, which look amazing. I gathered feedback from the team at Codeglue, added to it and sent it off to Robin, who is now deep in line work. I also edited a new blog post for Codeglue.
- Had dinner with Collin, who came to Amsterdam. We discussed travelling the world and marketing RIVE, among other things. Later in the week I made some tweaks to the RIVE website.
Average step count per day: 7.667
Average staircase count per day: 9
Average sleep per night: 7:53
Average weight: 88,0
- Subtle change to the weeknotes setup: I’ll be trying to write them at the end of the week (on Friday afternoon when possible) instead of at the beginning of the next week, so I’ll be referring to ‘last week’ as ‘this week’ and to ‘this week’ as ‘next week’. If you know what I mean. ↩
