April turned out to be even busier than March, so I wasn't able to spend as much time on personal projects as I would have liked.
April's primary goals
1. Create a playable prototype of something
I have the basics of a text adventure engine working, but there's a lot more to do before I'd consider it playable.
2. Release the new version of Craft Roulette
Didn't even touch this. Not a huge loss, but I really wanted to get it done and off my list.
3. Contribute to another free software project
I contributed some changes to zetteldeft.
April's secondary goals
1. Run 115 miles
I stuck pretty close to my running plan, with only a few exceptions due to injury. I feel like I peaked a little early, but we'll see how things go on race day.
2. Plan version 1.1 of Writing PHP with Emacs
I have a list of things I want to include in version 1.1, and I've started research for this new content.
Primary goals for May
1. Run a marathon
Due to Covid-19 this was delayed by two months, so I've been training in some form or another for six months now. It's still not going to be quite what I wanted (no crowds are allowed at the finish) but at least I won't be alone this time.
Secondary goals for May
1. Write more
The last few weeks have been pretty slim on writing. I have a dozen or so post ideas, but inspiration really dried up as work got busier. I'd like to get back in a decent rhythm this month.
2. Finish my Atari ST text adventure
I have some ideas for it, and I have the basics of the engine down. There are still lots of puzzles to create - and a lot of writing to do - but it's getting there. I'd like a playable version online by June.
