Tuesdaily with an axe in hand.

After this weekend's flop of a Muse Fusion, I'm asking hard Torn World questions at the forum: http://www.tornworld.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=906

In fact, it's getting near that time when I need to sit down with the Master Chopping Block list I made last year, and consider some of those projects that were in danger at that point, and do a general status update. I intend to get rid of as much dead weight as possible before next year.

In the not-dead-weight category, there is a Sketch Fest this Friday! http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/sketchfest/

I get the fun and excitement of a doctor's appointment and glucose test today! Please cross your fingers for no gestational diabetes. I'd really like to not have that. Guppy has been acting healthy, I've been somewhat fatigued but not bad, and having bras that actually fit has done wonders for my 'feeling pinched' complaint. I've been a little morose over the last few weeks - we're down to 5 hours of daylight, and I've been taking the time to sit in front of the happy light for a while each morning the past two days.

Stalled out on NotNoWriMo, though I've got one more day to pull out three stories, and I did get about 200 words and an outline done yesterday. Maybe after the doctor's appointment? Shower and snack now, and I've got programming to tackle.

In regards to Torn World, you may be better able to judge this than I am, but do *things* in general slow down this time of year? I ask because another project I sorta follow is saying some similar things, and I'm kinda wondering if there's a general downward trend of activity/participation in the winter (maybe it's the holidays? maybe the shorter days? if you have a lot of students, maybe they just get too busy this time of year?).

One thing I might suggest might be to create some smaller projects within Torn World with very specific goals. Things like the Sea Monster month, or the flora/fauna competitions. These give people a focused goal to work on, collaboratively with other people. I think some of the difficulties with Torn World is that it's just so big it's overwhelming. A smaller sub-project might give people a chance to get involved, without having to read up on the whole world. (And I'll admit, I keep thinking about doing various projects for Torn World, and then getting distracted by other things in life.)

That is an excellent idea - I will put some brainpower to figuring how much work it would be to start up some contests again, or maybe do a themed month in January!
