What have you accomplished since yesterday?: Got through the first-pass edits on my current podfic (~5000 words) and made a rec on podfic_love. \o/
What challenges are you currently facing?: Just life, in general.
Are you where you'd hoped to be by this time? Do you think you'll meet your goals for the week> I'm actually further along than I thought I'd be (nearly there!!!). I might actually meet a couple of my personal stretch goals :D

Yay for accomplishing things! And for being so close to meeting all your goals. \o/

Stretch goals -- are those like bonus goals on top of your stated goals?

Yes!! Kind of like above-and-beyond, in-a-perfect-world goals. Mine revolve around recording, since that's the hardest part for me.

Okay, cool! I hadn't thought that far ahead, but that's a good idea. Next GSD Week!

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: I just finished the cover art for my podfic that I'm posting on Friday. Graphics aren't my strong suit, but I'm really pleased with this one! Earlier I recorded 800 words. Oh, and I asked for permission to record from someone I've never asked. Eeep. ETA that I heard back already & it's a go! Yay!

What challenges are you currently facing?: I've been putting off doing the final passes on the podfic I'm posting on Friday. It's a really short fic though, so I feel okay putting it off for one more night. (I got a lot of other things done tonight!) I guess I'm worried I'll screw up the pauses, even though I have tricks to prevent this.

Oooooh yay to the quick permission from author!!

I've had a string of disappointments on that count in the past year or so, with people either never responding or saying no. And in both cases, it didn't seem to matter whether the author was a "stranger" or someone I'd previously interacted with (or even podficced!) before.
Happy for you. :D :D :D

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: Did another edit on Let me be your canvas because it had two errors I had previously missed. Didn't get any recording done, because...

What challenges are you currently facing?: My brother, who lives in our basement, spent the entire evening- the ENTIRE EVENING, after I specifically told him I'd be recording tonight- working out in our living room, from where the sound carries into my recording space very loudly.

Are you where you'd hoped to be by this time? Do you think you'll meet your goals for the week? Yeah, pretty much. I'm over halfway to my goal of 30000 words recorded, and I SHOULD have all tomorrow evening and all of Saturday to record in peace. Hoping to get a 22k word fic done then.

Yeah it's kind of awful. Plus he talks to himself the whole time.

We're moving in June. Mostly to stop having a roommate, if I'm honest.

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: Nothing! /throws hands in the air
Are you where you'd hoped to be by this time? More or less. I've gotten most of the recording done which is what I thought would be holding me up. I haven't done much editing but I just need to find a good stretch of time to do that.
Do you think you'll meet your goals for the week?: I'm pretty sure that I'll finish recording and editing but I'm not sure on whether I'll actually get around to posting my finished podfics. It's the weirdest podblock ever but I can't get past it :(

Brains are the most sinister podblock in the world. Hopefully whatever is going on there will clear soon *glomps*

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: I was not able to get anything done on Tues, but today I spent about 1hr20min editing (in three different sessions)! That's only about 15 minutes of the recording, for me, but hey.
What challenges are you currently facing?:Lack of time, and again with the demanding 3 yr old. Also, I had to do my laundry tonight :P

Are you where you'd hoped to be by this time?:
More or less. When I signed up for this group, I thought that I would have more time to spend on editing on Monday, but that didn't quite work out as planned. Otherwise, I knew going in that I'd be more productive during the 2nd half of the week.

Do you think you'll meet your goals for the week?: Probably not, but I'll have made a nice dent. And I'll be happy because if it wasn't for these check-ins, I probably would not have done ANY podficcing this week!!!

Well, I finished updating my master list, and I checked one of my podfics against the text. I got a whole one word wrong! :D (I'm gonna be lazy and leave it alone.)

And that's it for me on this GSD week. I'm off to Gallifrey One. I'll be cheering y'all on from afar.

Definitely not going to meet my goals, since I only just finished the second editing pass on the short podfic (now clocking in at 27 minutes) and have been only 20 minutes into the first pass of the ~1.5 hour podfic since, uh, last week? I might post the short one tomorrow.

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: I finished two uploads to the Archive, and did one rec :)
What challenges are you currently facing?: The usual AFK stuff eating all my time.

I didn't have a problem with uploading tonight, so yay! \o/ So far, pretty much on target to reach my ridiculously low goals, but at least I'm working on it daily, bit by bit. I'll count that as a win :)

I, too, had ridiculously low goals :) but we're actually getting to them, and I don't know about you, but I know I wouldn't have otherwise! So muc better than setting no goals and not doing anything! And WELL DONE on the archiving and reccing!!!!!!!!!!!!

About

Each month the community will host a GSD Week:

Day 1: Participants will declare their podfic-related goal for the week. This goal may include recording, editing, designing cover art, archiving, posting, organizing challenges, or anything else related to podfic fandom.

Day 2-6: Participants will (optionally) check in daily with a report of their progress. This is a good opportunity to share snippets of works in progress.

Day 7: Participants will declare their total progress for the week and determine whether or not they've met their personal goal.

Everyone is welcome to drop by and encourage participants in their endeavors. ♥
