• Nanowrimo 2023 Word Counting Calendar Update

    October 30, 2023

    "Word Count Progress Calendar for Nanowrimo 2023"

    For 2023 I’ve updated the Word Counting Progress Calendar. It’s a functional visual progress counter for Nanowrimo participants who like to fill in progress graphs to pace themselves.

    • Fill-in the approximate amount of words you are writing every day to get a sense of your pacing.
    • Record your daily word counts and fill-in the number of boxes for each day (each box represents 250 words).
    • As time goes on you can see the filled-in blocks turn into a progress graph.
    • Summarize your weekly word totals and get a sense if you’re on-track to hit your 50,000 word goal!

    For 2023 there are six color variations::

    You might want to bookmark the official word counting calendar page, which is updated every year to reflect the current calendar around this time every year.


    Thanks to Jess for pointing out that 2017 was the same for 2023, saving me oodles of time!

  • Announcement: Removing FeedPress and Newsletter Support

    February 21, 2023

    I’ve been using FeedPress for years, but the service itself seems to be running on life support while also increasing in price. I’d rather put that money into a service that is more creator-focused, maybe SubStack or something like that.

    If you have an email subscription to this blog, it will be going away. The RSS feed will continue to work, but will not have the fancy formatting it used to have. Should I replace the email newsletter functionality with something else, I’ll post on Twitter (assuming it is still around), Mastodon, and on this site.

  • Groundhog Day Resolutions Kickoff 2023!

    February 6, 2023

    I started 2023 by relocating my home office back to the basement It’s time again for my yearly “Groundhog Day Resolutions” (aka GHDR). As I’m posting new content to the new website, that’s where you can find the kickoff post. It’s a “live” document that may change, but I think the current draft captures the gist of what I’m doing this year: incorporating ADHD and ASD mitigations into the productivity system. The kickoff post outlines the starting ideas.
