Monday. I woke up at 5:30 AM and despite feeling tired I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I set myself to work. It seems I’m almost done, but it’s strange: just yesterday I has the feeling I was weeks away from release. I won’t fret about the release date, I’ll just know when it’s done.

On my workplace

  1. Is the gym a viable workplace?

I didn’t try this out today, I was working quite well at home so I let it be.

  1. What can I do to reduce distractions at home?

Yesterday I committed to closing the door of the office as to reduce the interruptions, but I found myself mindlessly opening the door as if nothing. I then put an obstacle on the door and I surprised myself yanking at the door forgetting about the obstacle. I was amused at the realisation that I forget myself so throughly when I’m at work, it’s the opposite of presence. I’ll continue the practice of working with the door closed with an obstacle, not to prevent myself from leaving the desk, but just to remember I inhabit a real world.

On work

  1. What are the best way of notifying people that new stages are available?

Withheld until release.

  1. What is the best way to monetize through recurring revenue?

The idea is maturing, but I’m not finding the right tools. Patreon rewards can’t have a set-up fee, so If I charge $50 USD per month and the patron cancels on the first month, then it will not be worth my time. I’ll have to investigate on PayPal subscriptions or something

Though I find this format useful, I don’t particularly enjoy writing it. It feels too much like work. I think I’ll simply add a “questions on the back of my mind” at the end of each work log.
