1. Q: “How is Skye: Endless Realm doing?”
I have once again failed to post regular updates on Skye’s social media pages! I definitely owe you all a report for your kindly rapport, which you’ve been keeping up despite dealing with much waiting and silence…!
For much of the time you’ve been waiting on Skye: Endless Realm, the person working full-time/solo on this project was/is me, which definitely poses a worrisome speed problem! I shall try to address one of the tangent causes of this speed problem; bogging work updates down with personal matters is something I hope to avoid doing to you, but after asking my friends for their thoughts/critiques on my work and life, I must conclude that my personal responsibilities are definitely having an impact on working speed. My working hours are from waking to sleeping (7-8 am to 2 am these days,) but in-between, I commit time to domestics, cook and care for family, and tend to our ill parent.
I very much do not want to concern anyone with this information! I should inform you that one of my goals at the moment is to produce work that enables others to work on Skye as I work, hence hastening Skye’s launch date.
The immediate tasks I am doing right now for Skye include the following (full image of my to-do list viewable here, and below on this post.)
Key for below mindmap: green traffic light = “underway, progress is good.” Yellow traffic light = “progress is concerning.” Green checkmark = “done.” Blue arrow = “this task has multiple parts.”
2. Q: “What are YOU doing?”
Here is a full to-do list of everything I’m working on** (all the tasks that need to be done in the near future, including commissioned artwork that I’ve been given the blessing to do by extremely patient clients, whose saintlike patience is reflected extraordinarily movingly by the too-kind, wondrous communities waiting for Skye to launch.) I do not deserve/have not deserved an ounce more of this virtuous patience! – I’ve got set plans in motion to turn Skye: Endless Waiting around.
- If anyone sees me goofing off or not doing any of the tasks I’m responsible for, please take the liberty to hollah at me – on any platform that you may reach me from.
- If I forgot anything on my to-do list, please feel free to remind me and I shall amend that straightaway!
**I will paste a copy of the to-do mindmap below just in case it can show up alright in this blog.
