Eep, I just realized how late it was on what day of the month. I'll post my card tomorrow or Monday!

todobingo

Here I am from ~the future~ to put right what was wrong with this post! Man, this card. It is top-loaded. Makes me really feel what I didn't get done, especially since I know I missed so many items due to letting myself forget or just plain procrastinating. Ever sit and do nothing while mentally railing against yourself to do something? Yeah. The month finished off on a pretty good note but dang if I'm not feeling the lack now... But enough about that! Here's what I did accomplish:

Read Comics )

Crochet Sculpture )

Write Boulvage )

Practice Drawing: )

Try a New Recipe )

Fix Tags )

Write Whrung )

Draw Otters Daily )

Do a Craft )

Write 100 Words Daily )

Finish Cushion )

So, that's it for September. Overall disappointing, but with some nice little victories to soothe over the burn. Fingers crossed for October!

Almost forgot to post this month's card!

Not a whole lot of changes, all told, since there aren't a lot of specific things I want to work on. Which should, in theory, mean more time spent on those few specific things I do want to work on. We'll see how that goes in practice!

Double bingo, as of mere minutes ago (at the time of the writing of this sentence)! I got so close to some of those unmarked squares that I can lick their flavor from my teeth, but what I did hit ain't too shabby. Taking it from the top as usual:

Read Comics )

Write 100 Words Daily )

Make a Plushie )

Write Whrung )

Practice Coding )

Work on Vampire Thing )

Post Something )

Fix Tags )

Prepare Binding )

Do a Craft )

Read a Book )

Anyway, that's all for now! Tune in next time, when I'll pay special attention to Finish Togepi Bag-- I'm so close, just gotta figure out the head spikes to my satisfaction-- and Crochet Sculpture-- I figured out most of teh techniques I'll need, I'm just nervous to get started. See you then!

And here's my card for August! Didn't end up making very many changes, but there are a few.
  • Practice Drawing has become a Weekly; as I've finally remembered to make myself a physical representation of the card on a whiteboard, I'm hoping that I won't lose track of it.
  • Three Squares in a Week has indeed been dropped for the time being, as I feel it's lost a little something with all the Daily squares.
  • Read Comics is back, since I've dug a few out recently.
  • Speaking of Comics, I'm looking to get around to finally getting my own custom bind put together, as noted with Prepare Binding.
  • Post Weekly didn't do much of anything for me the few times it appeared, so I'm trying out the lower-pressure Post Something.
  • Finish Togepi Plush has become Finish Togepi Bag because I decided that's what it's going to be instead; it's also sort of branched off into Make a Plushie, since that is still something I want to do.
  • Write Daily has been upgraded with a one hundred word minimum, as I'd considered.
  • Speaking of writing, I'm looking to buckle down on a specific WIP I've had sitting around for one of my Transformers rare ships, hence Write Boulvage.
  • Finally, I'm going to be trying out Crochet Sculpture (the square should probably read Make Crochet Sculpture, but whatever); essentially, I'll be using very thin crochet hooks with fine crochet thread and applying fabric stiffener to, if all goes right, create a small statue.
Wish me luck!

Well, didn't get nearly as much done as I'd have liked. I'm kinda cringing at this, haha. Especially the squares where I came really close but ultimately fell short of. Still, what's done is done, amirite? So, without further ado:

And that's that for the month! I've got some things to think about for next time and a few new projects I know are going to be added. Not gonna lie, I sort of miss the three cards, though not quite enough to switch back just yet, if only for the extra space.

So, here's my card for July! Yes, that's right, back to one card. It was interesting to work with three at a time and I honestly really enjoyed it. But as I've mentioned before, I have an "out of sight, out of mind" problem with the cards sometimes. I toyed with the idea of sketching out a hard copy on a chalkboard or such and I still like that idea. I, in fact, only now remembered that I had that idea, in part because I didn't think of it at all when I would've had to sketch out three different cards. So, at least for now, a single it is.

Not much new stuff going on-- in part, I admit, because having so few squares again feels really weird XD I ended up not making Practice Coding a daily square after all because I decided to make Practice Spanish a daily, and I didn't want to overwhelm the card with those. I like them, they're helpful, but they don't contribute to an early bingo since I can't mark them until the end of the month, Can't have those good daily habits dragging me down!

Anyway, yeah. I'm aiming to include more specifics on next month's card. For now, I didn't have much in the way of specifics that I was willing to sacrifice the freer vague squares for.

Aaand no stray squares on either of the two losing cards, so we're done for now!
 
I've got to admit, I got more done this month than I'd been giving myself credit for, even with the couple of "sure, why not" marks. Even though I missed some things I really hoped I wouldn't-- didn't touch Spanish all month aside from joking with a customer one day, for example-- I'm quite pleased! Still aiming for a blackout, though, of course. Maybe July will be the month for it.

Man, the worst part of forgetting my end-of-month bingo posts and putting it off until the next day is that it throws off my sense of having to still do my beginning-of-month bingo posts. Anyway, here are my new cards!

Whoops, forgot about my end-of-month bingo post again. Watch this space!

Only one bingo again, sadly, and I got frustratingly close on both of the other cards. Even more frustrating is the way I played myself; I thought that I set myself weekly Spanish practice for this month, not biweekly. Since I didn't mark my cards as I went, I wasn't reminded otherwise. Ah, well, I scraped by on that one anyway. I need to set myself up a proper schedule for some of this stuff, I swear.

Anyway, as with last month, I'll go over the marked squares on my winning card first, then cover any squares on the other two that weren't on the first.

OKAY, SO. The reason this post is so late in updating is that I found myself very uncertain of how I wanted to format, what with the three cards thing. Well, that's the first reason; the second is my dubious attention span. However! I've got that ironed out and am prepared to present my cards. No blackouts and I only hit one bingo, sadly. I decided to cover the card that got the bingo first, then any squares on either of the other two that didn't appear on said card.

Three Squares in a Week )

Huh, didn't have much to mark beyond my wining card. Kind of a letdown, haha. Right now, I'm not entirely sure what I think of using three cards. Though that was always going to be hit or miss, depending on what tasks made it onto how many cards and what I managed to accomplish. I'm going to stick with it for now, but it remains to be seen whether it'll remain a regular feature.

Decided to do something a little different this month, based on my realization that the reason my cards kept missing squares I was sure I included, even after fixing/remaking the card, was that I miscounted how many items I was listing. This time, I intentionally overloaded the list and made-- drumroll, please-- three cards!

For a bit more proper of a bingo game. With myself... Anyway! I'm not at all sure whether I'll be keeping this up; guess we'll see how it goes this month :D

This month's card! Got a couple revisions this time around. I wanna get on some kind of relatively set schedule with my Spanish practice, so I'm going to aim to do lessons twice a week and work out the best days for that as I go. Mind, this is a broad goal; my hope is to do more per week, but I wanted a catchy phrase to put on the square. Otter drawing has been made daily again because weekly was making it too easy to forget. I... am not sure why I didn't go biweekly for that as well. Ah, well.

Some astute readers may note that I've also got a few new squares. I mentioned in my last post for last month's card that I've written a lot but posted very little. Happy as I am with my productivity, I would like to encourage myself to finish and present more work. Thus, the Post Weekly square; I'll be aiming to post at least once a week but will do my best to post more. Write Anolug refers to my latest Transformers ship, the one I mentioned previously may be on the chopping block; gotta get it all out while I can, especially since I dropped the ball for FemFeb. Finish Cushion refers to a throw cushion I started crocheting last month and hope to have finished by the end of this one. It's coming along nicely, so I don't have much in the way of doubt. Voice Lessons is an experiment of sorts; I'd like to become a better speaker, with a mind toward maybe eventually doing videos of some kind. I'll be tracking my progress throughout the month. Watch Beast Wars has been broken away from the general Watch Stuff card because I specifically need to revise what I know for the personal project I mentioned way back forever ago, lol. I've been slacking, not least because my notes have about exhausted what I know.

Finally, and warranting its own paragraph, the Last Square card. I'm going into this month with an eye toward a full blackout. That square will be marked when, and only when, it is-- of course-- the last unmarked square on the card. We'll see how having it as a concrete goal affects my doings this month. Fingers crossed for the best!

I came so close to blacking out my bingo card this month, ugh. I let myself lose momentum in the second half, or else I might've done it. Heck, I even nearly finally hit my Submit to a Magazine square... Ah, well, I'll try to let it pump me up for next month!

Honorable mentions for Draw Otters Weekly and Improve Spanish. I came really close with the otters, but dropped the ball this past week. Next time for sure! I also did practice Spanish, but I've been lax on practicing for long enough now that I ended up falling behind where I'd been. I do feel like I've made steps toward correcting this, but I don't feel right marking the square when I don't feel properly improved, y'know?

Guess who got an early bingo!

todolistalt
[Image: A personalized to-do list bingo card, several squares marked. The right-to-left diagonal line is complete]

I was bound and determined to get an early bingo this month, since I got one last February. I would've liked to get one as early as I did then, too, and I actually came really close! Only I messed up when I made my card, leaving off a couple squares I meant to include, and only noticed when I was half through the line I was working on. I really, really wanted those squares, though, so I grit my teeth and made a new card. It ended up not screwing me over too bad and I was one square away... when I realized I'd still left out a square I really wanted. Really, really wanted. So I (*silentragescream*) made another new card. Which is this one, which I just finished today! So, y'know, frustrating, but I still got a bingo at the halfway point :D

Now, without further ado-- the marks!

Lol, aaand I just realized I killed my Practice Crochet square when I last redid my card. Wow, what a mess this month has been! Y'know, something I forgot to mention is that I somehow ended up with two cards at once before this one and wasn't sure which I liked best, so I was marking both to see what gave me a bingo first. Cheating? Maybe, Idek. I got within one square of a line on both of them before realizing that both of them were missing squares I wanted! I never thought I'd need to proofread a to-do list so closely... Whatever, I'm not changing it again now that I got my bingo XD

Nearly forgot to post this month's card!

Last year, February was my earliest bingo (less than halfway into the month!) and I'd love to pull that off again. It's not gonna be so easy this time, though. Last time, I loaded the card by about half with ships I intended to write for Femslash February and a lot of those squares accounted for my bingo. I forewent loading the card like that this year because I'm not going to be hitting FemFeb as hard as I have the last few years. That is to say, I'm not turning one hundred percent of my focus on femslash for the month. I've had several non-femslash writing projects I've procrastinated on for months now and I'd rather not lock myself in. I'm still intending to do something (hence my Write Femslash square) but it's not gonna dominate my creative process. I hope, anyway...

Bingo!

todolist
[Image: A personalized to-do list bingo card. Several squares are marked and the middle column is complete]


So, it occurs to me as I sit and type this that I could've posted my bingo days ago. I'm just so used to posting at the end of the month now, I guess. Holy self-defeatism, Batman... This actually drives home something I've been thinking about lately, namely that I've fallen into the habit of ignoring the card until the last half-- or less-- of the month. The increased urge to get stuff done that the realization grants me is good, don't get me wrong. Before, I would realize I hadn't accomplished anything for the better part of a month, mean to accomplish stuff and then... not. But cramming a few accomplishments into a week or two isn't really in the spirit of the cards, as I see them. The main problem, I think, is that as I've gotten used to them, they've fallen in line with my long-standing "out of sight, out of mind" issues. I'm considering, for the next card, pinning a physical recreation somewhere I'll see it often, so I won't drift away from the thought of it. I've got a dry erase board around here someplace, might put that to use.

As for this card! Missed some of my more coveted squares again and I wanna go ahead and address some of them now and get it done with, so I've got room to finish on a positive note. The squares I'm most bummed about missing are Practice Spanish Daily, Draw Otter Weekly and Sumbit to a Magazine, so I'm gonna just touch on those.

I am so annoyed with my lack of progress in Spanish. I've hardly touched it at all this whole month, only bothering to do any practicing the last few days. And that's after spending two days wallowing in the fact that I hadn't done anything yet. I'm reconsidering the wording on this square, tbh. For all that I've had pretty good luck with my other "daily" task (Write Every Day), I find that messing up on the Spanish propels me headlong into a grey zone between misery and apathy. I may change this one to some set amount of progress going forward and see how that does me.

The Otters square, I'm not sure what I'll do. I have drawn otters this month-- heck, I think I've drawn more otters than I did last time I actually marked the square-- but I drew them all in the last two weeks. This comes back to the "out of sight, out of mind" thing again. That and my listless, floating relationship with time. I had supplies ready and set the first week, I blinked, and a week had passed. I decided to go on ahead and do as many as I could... and then another week had passed. I'm gonna tough it out with this square, see if the physical copy card idea helps out.

And then there's the Magazine square, which I may be most bummed about. I was all set and ready to do that one this month, like really hyped up and ready. I looked into a bunch of calls for submissions and mindfully whittled down my options, I was on a roll for writing every single day, I knew what I wanted to do... I'm. Still actually not sure where I messed up, honestly. I'm not sure what to change. Put my faith in the physical copy for this one too? I dunno.

... Hm. Well. Onto this month's successes, yes?

I really wanted to have my post for last month finished before posting the new card, but I'm still having issues. Not even computer issues, per se, program and "what is the deal with this stupid website right now" issues, heh. If anyone is burning up with curiosity, I got the bottom row and a few stray squares.

Tbh, I debated not doing the cards again this year, since I kinda fizzled out in the last few months. But, ultimately, I do enjoy them and I've gotten a lot done that I think I'd otherwise still be procrastinating on, so, here we are again! Here's hoping that new year magic will give me a boost and that it'll take me all the way into the next one :D
