The Have Done List: September to October

Here's some stuff I've done in the last month and a half that I think's notable:
  • defriended a couple of people on Facebook (if you're reading this, you're unlikely to be one of them)
  • gave feedback on Jenni's novel
  • asked Matt if he would digitise episodes of lovebites for me (which he very kindly did)
  • decluttered, massively

  • got an exciting comment about people who are interested in playtesting Left Coast

  • got good feedback from Jenni about my feedback on her novel
  • bought a desk and assembled it myself

  • broke a desk
  • went on holiday
  • stayed reasonably dry in the middle of a three day storm
  • re-learned how to build a fire

  • introduced Jennifer to story games

  • cleared all of my emails (believe me, this is a big thing!)
  • fixed a desk
  • broke a filing cabinet
  • threw a temper tantrum (which fixed the filing cabinet)
  • set up an filing system at work 
  • deposited 20 boxes of emails and script notes from the lovebites TV series at the Film Archive (closure, baby! Yeah!)
  • learned how to give effective feedback in a personal/non-literary context (Describe when it occured; Describe exactly and objectively what happened; Explain the impact it had on you).
  • Decided to write a scholarship application in 24 hours
  • Had a lot of fun with Jennifer on Halloween weekend, including becoming a raving fan of the pies at Sweet Mother's Kitchen
  • Inspired mcdaldno to write more of his game: Monsterhearts.

Great list :)

I need to do some decluttering, it's been a while since I last did it and it feels good.

Steve, I love your list.

Awesome list! Hopefully Jennifer will like "the talking game"!

Will cross my fingers and toes for your scholarship application... It is always awesome and affirming when you manage to convince someone that the work you love deserves funding.
