Goal of Logical Dreams: July Recap + August Goals

Last month, my goal was to redesign the Fiction Navigation page.

That did not happen.

But that’s fine. New month, new chance.

This month, I would like to give it one more shot.

See you again next month! Hopefully with a cleaner Fiction Navigation page.

Goal of Logical Dreams: June Recap + July Goals

In June, not only did I want to post something everyday, I wanted to set up a regular schedule. If you’ve been checking on Logical Dreams regularly, you would notice that new posts have been appearing every day at 10am!

This is something I would like to continue in July.

Other than that, I would like to do update the Fiction Navigation page. As I write more and more stories, more and more things get added to the page until it’s a huge wall of text. The Fiction Navigation page is meant to help people navigate Logical Dreams. In July, I would like to see if there’s a better way to present my clusters of stories.

Are there some changes you believe would help you navigate Logical Dreams? Feel free to share in the comments below.

See you again next month.

Goal of Logical Dreams: May Recap + June Goals

In May, I aimed to post something every day. I got pretty close. Hope you enjoyed all the stories on Logical Dreams this month 🙂

In June, I still want to aim for a post a day, with the additional goal of having a regular time to post them up.

Please look forward to it and see you next month!

Goal of Logical Dreams: April Recap + May Goals

Last month, my goal was to create a longer story around 1000 words.

That story is Different Views. If you haven’t yet, do check it out.

 

For May, I’m going back to an old goal, which is to post something every day this month. I hope this would be an interesting month for you as it would be for me 🙂

Goal of Logical Dreams: March Recap + April Goals

In March, I wanted to create a convenient place to gather the more popular stories on Logical Dreams.

Here it is!

Some stories I remember without problem, others I could not recognise from the just reading the title. How many have you read from the list?

 

For April, I would like to write a longer piece. Around 1000 words would be good. Either in one post or as a multi-chapter story.

See you next time!

Goal of Logical Dreams: February Recap + March Goals

Hey there. It’s been awhile. More than a week, actually, since my last post.

I knew February would be busy, so I didn’t really set a goal. Hence, there’s nothing much to report on my February progress.

This month, I want to find my ‘most liked stories’ and list them somewhere. Partly out of curiosity and also to provide a convenient shortlist that is less daunting than going through all the stories in this blog.

I’m pretty excited to see what will end up on the shortlist.

Goal of Logical Dreams: January Recap + February Goals

January flew by so quickly >.<

Last month, I aimed to post once a day. According to my stats I made 16 posts last month.

….

That’s less than I thought.

Well it’s a new month. So out with the old and in with the new!

For February, I… would like to take it easy. The next two months are going to be pretty busy for me, so I’ll aim to post regularly, but nothing groundbreaking.

I’m also not sure what other goals I can work on other than repeating the same few goals. If anyone has any ideas, do share.

Until then, hope you enjoy my stories 🙂

Goal of Logical Dreams: December Recap + January Goals

In December, I aimed for quality over quantity.

Well, there certainly were ‘less’ stories posted. As for quality, it’s harder to measure that, but I’m quite happy. To Leave The Palace was one of the stories that improved because I wanted more from my stories. Originally, the story was going to be short and straightforward. The fairy friend was a character that was only written in later, after spending most of the day thinking that the story needed more.

So that’s for December. What about January?

This might sound strange after posting so late after the new year, but I would like to post more regularly again. Once a day would be my goal this month.

As for 2018 in general, I would like to try more season/holiday special posts. Such as Christmas, Chinese New Year etc.

What goals are you setting for the new year?

Goals of Logical Dreams: October and November Recap + December Goals

In October, I was preparing for NaNoWriMo in November. Anticipating that I would be pretty busy in November, one of my goals was to create extra content in October so I can schedule them in November.

How did that go?

Everything that was posted here in November was something I prepared before hand in October. I didn’t prepare enough to post something every day, but it was nice to revisit some old stories and discover new paths.

How did NaNoWriMo go?

Pretty badly. I was pretty busy in the beginning of the month and fell behind very early. After that, looking at all the words I had to catch up on was so daunting it was hard to be motivated to keep going. It’s something I would need to keep in mind the next time I attempt NaNoWriMo.

Something else I noticed was that as I was writing the novel, I often found myself more focused on shaping structure rather than creating stories. That’s not the kind of stories I like reading, and that’s not the kind of stories I want to write.

Which leads to this month’s goal.

This month’s goal is quality over quantity. More plot, more interesting stuff happening, more drama.

I hope this month proves to be an interesting one for both of us.

Goals of Logical Dreams: September Recap + October Goals

Last month, I had two goals:

  • Categorise my story by length
  • Create a patreon page

I took a look at my categories, and I realised very quickly that what I needed wasn’t more categories, but less. So I’ve combined a lot of smaller categories together. Hopefully that makes the blog a little simpler to navigate.

As for the second goal. My I present… my patreon page!

There isn’t much right now, but this month, I’ll be posting up my prep plans for NaNoWriMo in November.

My other goal for October is to write extra stories this month so I can post something up in November while I work on NaNoWriMo.

Exciting times 🙂 If you would like to join or support me, do drop by my patreon page.
