I see so many people here that produce so many different kinds of cool and creative things and I want to know what the work methodology is to make it happen.

Whelp, finally finished my react-hooks migration on writing.natwelch.com. Took way longer than expected, but site feels more snappy now I guess? All of the changes are visible at github.com/icco/writing/pull/6. Only real big change is commenting should now be easier.

Today in , I'm debating on working on my second book, writing a blog post, continuing fixing my blog, or returning to designing a UI for reportd. Whatever I pick needs to be open to lots of interrupts as my wife is sick with the flu.

One thing I didn't include in my goals is improving my involvement in smaller communities, mainly because I wasn't sure how to quantify it. I have four that I care about... just need to remind myself to stay active in them.

Finally set up my account here. Thanks to recurse center zulip for reminding me :D
