May has been a month of preparing, waiting and doing. It has been exciting and full of trepidation. It has been an uphill climb but the summit is in sight. Time for my May review.
I planned my blogging better. This enabled me to post here most days. I used one of my Iconic journals to do some initial planning and organising, set deadlines and tried to get ahead. So far it’s working, so we’ll see if I can keep up the good work in June.
I updated Patreon. I wanted to make the wonderful supporters feel more a part of the journey. I changed the names of the support levels and modified what each level receives. If you’d like to support the arts then do take a look at Patreon and my page there. In addition to these changes, I continued to create more music and share it with the supporters.
I have been recording and mixing two songs. I had hoped for four, but these two took a little longer. This might have been because I got a little sidetracked with: Arturia’s new Collection V, moving my Logic samples to an external USB drive and archiving some completed music files. However, it will mean I am more focussed in June… yes… I will be.
The final musical piece in May was to get very close to launching a royalty-free music archive. This will include themes, jingles and soundtracks for use in creative projects. They will be free to use and be royalty-free as well. More to come on that shortly.
My fiction writing stuttered in May. I had a lot on my mind and unfortunately it was the fiction that suffered. However, I did sort out, or put into process a couple of admin / personal issues that were weighing on my mind. This will free up a lot of mental energy.
I created brand documents for all my projects, updated their various social outposts and automated as much as I could. I love IFTTT and also used Zapier too. I began the month with over 1300 next actions on Omnifocus and through doing, pruning and finding duplicates, I now have just over 900. There is a long way to go but I want this list dramatically reduced.
May was a productive month. June is a month to complete things. July is when the adventure begins.
