Update on the State o’ Chad

Just a quick update… all of my current projects are still live, I’ve tried to service them all a bit this past week… and it’s sucking the juice out of me.

Here’s what I’m gonna do with them, so as not to go insane.

1. Local gamma playtests of Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies: One down, at least three or four more to go, switching in different players and characters. Try to set next session up for late April. Rewrite handout.

2. Gamma draft revision of the S7S manuscript: Can’t be done until local gammas are done. Stop thinking about it until after playtests to free up headspace.

3. Research and analysis on Small Favor: Finished re-read of book. Starting the actual note-taking tonight.

4. Zorcerer of Zo-based fairy tales: Stalled in mid-tale, most due to fatigue. Stop thinking about it until after I can get back to novel; free up headspace. (EXCEPTION: Must write one as present for somebody’s birthday.)

5. Incipient novel: One chapter written. (Stop thinking about it until after Small Favor work is done to free up headspace.)

6. Script Collaboration: First draft done. Awaiting comments from trusted readers. Revise/Edit/Trim/Tighten for upcoming contests.

7. Providing feedback to authors/game designers: Reducing this, unless one or more of three things is involved — friendship, a PDQ licensee, or cold hard cash.

8. Freelance editing work: Do one more night’s worth of work on prep docs beginning of next week, then ignore until the document to be edited hits my inbox.

9. Other low-impact projects I can’t remember: If I can’t remember them, they’re unimportant, so I’m erasing the vague bookmarks point into mystery that are squatting in my skullmeats.

Thus, the actual To Do List becomes, in rough order:
A. SmF notes: Start tonight.
B. Get feedback on script; revise: As it happens.
C. Get info for a Zo Tale for present: This weekend.
D. Finish editing prep docs: Monday or Tuesday.
E. S7S Gamma Playtests: Revise handout late next week, start nosing around for interest in an end-of-month session.

Well, that almost cut it in half.

Also: Find time to sleep, somewhere in there.
