[dev] Weekly roundup: still writing

July is themeless, though in practice it’s been mostly blogging.

  • irl: Wow! I did a bunch of errands and sifted through a bunch of email I’d been putting off. Exciting. Also I decided to take half an hour of server downtime for some upgrades right in the middle of the day because I’m bad at ops.

  • art: Daily Pokémon, of course. I’ve now done 30 of these speedpaints (only 75% of daily, oh well), and there’s some visible progress in there, which is pretty cool to see. I also drew an Eevee that attempted to take some inspiration from huiro, a Japanese artist with a really simple style that I like.

  • blog: I wrote about naming. I also spent multiple days working on a pair of Python 3 posts. I sure hope they get finished soon, but I guess you’ll have to wait until the next weekly roundup to find out!

Oh boy that doesn’t sound like a lot, but really, I spent so much time writing. And playing Starbound. But mostly, writing. The Python 3 posts total about twenty thousand words!

After the mad dash to publish six things in two and a half weeks, I’m all caught up on blogging. I’ll try to write some shorter and quicker things this month — I’m sure these massive tomes are as exhausting to read as they are to write — and spread them out a bit more evenly.

I have a bunch of stuff I want to make progress on in August, but I guess you’ll have to wait and see what those are! Hopefully I’ll have something to show by next week, but if not, I’ll quietly and shamefully pretend I wasn’t ever going to do any of it anyway and playing Starbound for a week was my original plan all along.

If you like when I write words, you can fund future wordsmithing (and other endeavors) by throwing a couple bucks at my Patreon!
