The month began with creating a context topic for the various HG Wells stories, called
Clockworks: The Times of the HG Wells Collection. The first story I placed into that context was First Born, which is also in the In Between Days context as it’s a bridge story. I also added Desperation and Recruitment and then The Honky Tonk Angel.
I then began adding an HG Wells story, Spring Thaw.
I also responded to a weekly challenge about new things with difficult consequences with a story called Tumult. I also contributed to a Round Round story (still in the works) called Storm Clouds, contributing (so far) sections called Go Badgers, Diplomacy, The Cold-Blooded Blues and Chaos and Control. I added a drabble called Barely Tolerable, meant to be a missing scene from Intolerance. I added the story of Kevin and Josie (Jhasi)’s first date, The Honky Tonk Angel.
The monthly challenge was called “A Page from the Past”. I used that as an opportunity to finally create and complete a new Interphases story called Concord. I also placed it into context (the story is posted in the Interphases series but it does also work as an In Between Days prequel). I also placed An Announcement, Barely Tolerable and We Meet Again into similar context.
I continued working on the E2 stories, polishing the third and adding to the fourth one.
I created an HTML version of Where the Wind Comes Sweeping Down the Plain, in anticipation of the next Times of the HG Wells story to be posted on Ad Astra. I also worked a bit on jespah.com and streamlined the footers.
This Month’s Productivity Killers
The search for work continues to be a productivity killer. I am also in the midst of working on a project for a site where I am working as a Marketing Associate, so that has taken up some of my time.
