Progress Report: January 17 – August 6, 2016

Well, I have definitely let the blogging thing slide, this year. I’ve had a bit of trouble balancing it with everything else. This report will be different to normal – especially as it’s mid-week and not on a Sunday. Where have I been, you ask?

Let me see, I tried to get my publishing schedule on track, but, after a promising start, it fell to pieces when the university semester began. I tried to fix this over the mid-semester break, by setting up a regular bi-monthly release for the second half of the year… and so far, I have succeeded.

In the meantime, here’s a quick overview of where I’m at:

Covers Created between January 1 and August 6, 2016: around 14.

In addition to this, I learned I had an obligation under the Australian Copyright Act 1968 to upload each published work to the National Library of Australia. I uploaded over 90 titles and have just under a dozen to go. This takes time.

I also scrapped my Story-A-Week Challenge and Holiday-Extension Challenge, as I just wasn’t getting to them, and had to continually prioritise something else over them. I started a new challenge, instead, and I’ll talk more about that later.

So, that's where I'm at. Tomorrow, I'll post some pokemon, just for a change of pace.
