Writing

What I did:

  • drafted first post of series
  • mostly conceptualised second post - it needs one more go through

What comes next:

  • begin illustrating post 1
  • outline post 2

What I struggled with:

  • not much… I think I might have reduced my standards for my writing? I’m relatively content with the post being relatively crisp. It does lack humor - but that might be something I can use the illstrns for

What I learnt:

  • most of writing these kinds of posts is thinking. Doing pmeds has helped me ‘write’ posts in my head within a matter of half an hour. The actual act of sitting down and typing them out is just a boring part of the job at this point.

Podcast

What I did:

  • new idea for a special episode. As noted, stepping away from the classical episodes is my next target for now.
  • conceptualised ep 35

What comes next:

  • social post and release ep 33

What I learnt:

  • Conceptualization
    • think fast, and commit to ideas. don’t overthink how good something could be.
  • Hosting
    • I saw a bunch of Tom Segura today. He is, of course, naturally hilarious. I want to incorporate bits like his and COBrien’s into the show. Relying on our own ability to ‘be funny’ is both: comfortable and subpar. Neither of which i’m okay with.
