(2015-05-09) Setting up a writing project on GitLab

(2017-05-01) Author Intrusion status for May 1, 2017

After a rough start of the previous week, I got a chance to really focus on Author Intrusion (AI). Despite the rather significant amount of check-ins and coding, I wasn't quite able to get to a really good "show off" point. Instead, this week ended up being a black triangle (significant progress but nothing visible).

(2017-05-24) State of writing with Markdown, YAML, and Git 2017

A year ago, at one of my more successful panels at WisCon, I was on a panel with K. Tempest Bradford and Kristine Smith talking about writing processes. I got to see a lot of cool gadgets but I also got a chance to talk about my processes of writing with Markdown, YAML, and Git.
