Scribbles and half-baked ideas
Notes on week 856
- 856 15 juni 2015 EN
With these weeknotes I track and archive whatever it is I spend my time on. They’re public so you can keep me in check.
Last week was a bit problematic, as I spent way too much time and energy on, and got way too frustrated by, stuff that’s ultimately not mission-critical. I won’t disclose what went wrong, in an effort to come off as professional and adult. Generally and reflectively speaking though, I feel like it’s currently way too easy to get me off-balance. I need to work on that. On the flip side, I did bounce back by the end of the week, sorting out heaps of scribbles and half-baked ideas, pouring tender loving care onto the grand Geometry Girl plan.
I spent a large chunk of my time on HKU stuff. On Wednesday I was at the Hilversum faculty all day, helping to judge students’ final exams. There were highs and there were lows; it was an educational experience, as they say. A day later I got around to checking my own students’ homework, which was overdue. I need to better schedule for that next year.
There was also Hubbub stuff, as in kids’ museum game copy, but not too much, and Two Tribes stuff, as I checked in with the RIVE makers on Friday to see the conversation system they’re cooking up for me (or rather, for my writing).
Finally, in the ‘random’ category, I…
- Posted a Swords & Soldiers II launch interview, with producer Robin Meijer of Ronimo Games, over at the DGA platform that I contribute to.
- Watched the Apple development keynote on Monday night. I’m looking forward to the next versions of iOS and OS X, mostly the performance improvements, but there was no big news from a hybrid writer’s perspective. Except perhaps the Apple Music ‘connect’ feature, that sounds somewhat similar to how I want to connect writers with their readers.
- Attended the latest show by comedian Daniël Arends. I’ve seen all his shows and came away a bit disappointed; I guess I prefer his more absurd material to his philosophical stuff. But I also laughed out loud, so hey?
- Played El Grande.
