Next knitting project, Oh Yes!

KnitVentures

ETA: blindmayhem on Ravelry made an in-the-roud version and posted her edits on their project page for everyone!

Any self-respecting Doctor Who fan can tell you what a TARDIS is.  It’s a blue box.  It’s bigger on the inside.  It’s Time And Relative Dimension In Space.  It’s not just a time machine.  It’s a spaceship, too.

Now you can be nerdy and keep your hands warm while doing so!  Isn’t that brilliant?  Fantastic, even!

Adapted from a visual of someone else’s TARDIS wristwarmers, I bring you my version.

Here’s the Ravelry page if you want to queue it up.

The pattern:

Notes:

·This pattern is written to be worked in the round at first, then flat.  You can, if you find it easier, work the whole thing flat; I just like doing the cuff in the round.

·The chart is worked in a Fair Isle method rather…

Writing for cash

I have been writing 2-5 articles per month on Helium.com. It is a great platform to make slow but steady income. So far, the most I have made just in revenue share in one month is 0.52$, but I also don’t have that many articles currently live. Leaving these articles just to stew makes me money, however slowly, and so I continue to add articles to the site every month. My goal is 5-10. Last month I succeeded. This month is NaNoWriMo, so we’ll see!

I enjoy the freedom of writing for Helium.com. It is up to me which subjects I write on, how often I write, and how long my articles are (as long as they are more than 400 words). It is a great way to add some income while still working a full-time desk job.

Anyone have a preferred platform for writing? Please share 🙂

This year’s resolution

This year, I’m going to try and create resolutions (or goals) that can be followed up on and reported on. I will be checking in at least once per month (probably around the beginning of each month) with an update.

This year, my first goal will be:

Write at least 1000 words, 5 days per week.

This is relevant to my writing dreams, and will hopefully push me towards expanding my skills and abilities in the writing field.

Seeing as I write each article in Microsoft Word (or whichever word processor is handy on the computer), it will be very easy to keep track of the number of words I write. By the end of the week, my tally of words should be over 5000.

I believe this is a realistic and attainable goal, but it will also be a challenge in terms of finding time to write as well as inspiration. I will not be confining myself to any particular subject for the writing, so long as the words are written.

I am not permitting myself to ‘word buffer’ or repeat words over and over again unless they are relevant to the subject I’m writing about. I plan on writing 100% original content, no matter what I write.

These 1000 words per day will not include any freelancing jobs that I pick up, they will be fully on my own personal time.

Starting January 1st, I will be putting this goal forward and working towards it each day.

I look forward to pursuing my writing further this year than ever before.
