When I woke up this morning, it took me a few moments to realize it was June 1. Already.
So I wanted to take some time to think about the different things that I want to complete this month.
But even as I said that, I realize that I will be gone for two weeks this month, to Mission Camp. But I can still do things during those two weeks, so I’m not discounting this month from productivity.
Here are a few things I’d like to complete this month. On July 1, we’ll look back on the month and see how far I came.
Write a Post Every Day
This is an extension of my “Write More. Write Better” series. My goal is to write 500 words every day – except Sunday. It can be about anything, although I’ll try to keep the “I don’t know what to write about” posts to a minimum.
Some things I’d like to write about:
- Uncharted Soundtrack
- Ace Attorney 6 predictions
- Turning 23
I’ll keep adding things to this list throughout the month, as I think of new things to write about. I’ll also link to the post I’ve written about the topic, just so there’s some good links flying around this site.
Games: Finish Writing Everything for Acts of the Apostles
The more I work on The Acts of the Apostles, the more I realize I haven’t written nearly enough. But I don’t want any of the writing to get in the way. This month, I want to completely finish writing everything for it – that’s NPC dialogue, cutscenes – everything.
Games: Finish Writing Turnabout Inheritance – Draft 1
I’m really pumped about Turnabout Inheritance, but because I’ll be gone for two weeks, I know that productivity for it will suffer. However, if I can get the first draft complete before I go away to camp, then I’ll be able to polish it up when I return.
Games: Finish creating Clone Wars Levels in Disney Infinity
Josiah and I are creating some levels in Disney Infinity, and it’s ridiculously hard. I keep getting caught up in the cosmetic aspect of it, but even the programming side of it is very tricky. But I want to spend as much time as I can finishing those levels, because you can build some pretty powerful stuff in there. Plus, it’s actually pretty fun!
Video Projects: Make a Video every Monday
I know that I am going to be making videos in the future – that’s just gonna happen. But I’m not the greatest in front of a camera. However, that’s not gonna stop me. I want to record and edit a video of myself talking or whatever, and put it out on Monday. I’m not posting it anywhere right now, kinda just collecting it as a record of how I’m progressing. I challenged Mateo and Jessica to do the same. Let’s see how far this thing can go.
Video Projects: Record/Edit Weekly Game Dev Diaries
This was another idea I had, and it executed OK – not the greatest. I want to spend more time on these dev diaries on Saturday – even if that means re-shooting. But they’re coming out pretty nicely, and I’m excited to see how they’ll improve over time.
So, as you can see, there are a whole lot of things that I want to do this month, and I don’t think this list even covers half of it.
As I said earlier, I’ll be back in July to see how this all played out. See you then!
