To keep myself accountable, I have chosen to post about my creative progress each week. Although you may not be invested in the details of my progress (or lack thereof), I hope you can take from some ideas on developing your own personal accountability method.
I fell short of my target and only had four posts this week. This first week of summer activities from outdoor chores to fun after work weekly activities ate in to my writing time. I’ve taken a look at how these activities impact my writing time and have adjusted my writing schedule to accommodate them. I know with these adjustments I can hit my goal of six posts this coming week. I certainly don’t want to miss out on the summer fun!
Next week’s target: Post 6 of 7 days
I had little time for my novel but was a able to complete a Flash Fiction piece which I posted on Wednesday. I’m not sure I’ll be spending much time outside in the 90 degree heat and high humidity this weekend, so my novel will be at the forefront of projects I will work on this weekend.
Next week’s target: 3 hours brainstorming and outlining
I spent a couple hours rewatching some of the Affinity Photo Video Tutorials. I want to keep learning and have found that I get more out of each tutorial on a second and third view. Much of this comes from a better understanding of the overall process and being able to take what I learn from one tutorial to help me better understand others.
Next week’s target: 1 to 2 hours of tutorials and practice
I worked through most of the UICollectionView tutorial I wanted to complete this week. My next step is incorporating what I learned in my own project.
Next week’s target: 3 hours, minimum with the goal of understanding Collection Views
I’m still working on the script for my Motion project. I am targeting completion again this week because I am at a stage where I don’t want to put too much work into the Motion project until I have a clear understanding of the storyline. I’m sure as I dig in to the actual animation I’ll have some story tweaks here and there but what I want to avoid is major structure changes.
Next week’s target: Complete the script
I hope you are finding success with your own projects. I’d be interested in knowing how you stay on target to complete your projects.
