Made-Up Bits

Husband, father, makes music. Has a thing for notebooks, fountain-pens, blogging and photography. Usually am overthinking this.

The 1989 Batmobile… Let’s do this.

Showtime: minus 50 min.

Finished reading the audio-book of Clive Barker’s “Mister B Gone” during the night. Who thought the life-story of a demon could be both grizzly and fun. The book was read, performed in fact, by “Pinhead” actor Doug Bradlely (Hellraiser), who I was delighted to learn, also has a series of classic horror stories he’s performing. Great! 📚

And no, I didn’t burn the book.

It took me less than a day to be reminded as to why I stopped using digital for my task management in the first place. That was quick.

Update yet one more day later: still fiddling with getting that to work better. I can’t be helped.

I have been using pen and paper with the Bullet Journal Method successfully and efficiently for more than two years now and have a setup that I would describe as damn near to perfect for me. Which is great. So naturally it was time therefore to give Todoist another try.

I don’t know why I’m doing that.

It’s that time of the year, another carved out pumpkin. Some how I feel the design is the same every year. Maybe the next one will be different.

But anyway, happy Halloween.

As I’m tinkering with my blog’s design I realized how much is now possible with the new features in the Gutenberg editor. I’m kind of looking forward to see what’s going to be possible once Side-Wide editing is released.

Todoist Master

I wrote a lot, if not too much, about my constant back and forth between various task-managers, but for quite some time I am happily using Todoist. One of the funnest features of it is the Karma system. For a week or so I tried OmniFocus again, but was totally missing getting Karma points every time I check-off a task and quickly switched back and haven’t looked back since.
