Works In Progress

I have a camp logo to design and ink. I have a story that needs editing. I have workbench projects to start and finish. I have a budget that needs restarting, and various and sundry other goals, large and small, that need doing.

So, naturally, I updated my website.

I've needed to update my book review site for a while. I wanted to do it every month, but I kept getting distracted, and it started bugging me. Plus, it was something I could do that wasn't important, and that's exactly the kind of task my brain was looking for.

Brightdreamer Books not only has new reviews and new Random Recommendations, but a new feature. I've started cross-referencing reviews, pointing all none of my visitors towards other titles they might enjoy (or prefer.) It's a work in progress, of course; right now, I only have A - C done. I'm still fine tuning the process, and it'll be a while before the whole list of 660 reviews is finished (yes, 660 - only 40 away from 700, which is my unofficial goal for 2010), but it's a start.

Swing on by and let me know what you think.

In the meantime, that's one thing checked off my list of frivolous distractions.

Let's see if I can't get to work on the important stuff, now...

APRIL 24 UPDATE - Well, I made tangible progress on the camp logo. I also just updated the book site again, with more cross-linking (D-G and T-Z books) and more Amazon links. Just need to keep chiseling away at the workload, but I feel like I might be getting somewhere. Almost.
