How did you do? Did you accomplish your goals? Surpass them? Did life interfere with your plans?

Check in here whenever you're ready to call it quits for the week. Please let me know if you've found this exercise useful and if you would do it again.

At this point, I'm thinking of hosting something like this every other month or so; if anyone wants to host a GSD-type event here (perhaps for a podfic challenge?), just poke me. :)

Well, it's 5:00pm here and I am just so finished for the day. Not one more podfic-related thing will be done today. *stamps foot*

I did accomplish my goals:

Recording: Goal: 5178 words | Finished: 23,378 words
Editing: Goal: First pass edits on 5178 words | Finished: First pass edits on 23,378 words
Other Goals:
(1) rec a podfic over on podfic_love - Done!
(2) post anthology on Friday - Done!
(3) leave feedback for 1 podfic -Done!

Also managed to:

(1) Make covers for my Awesome Ladies podfics
(2) Re-post my Awesome Ladies podfics at AO3

Phew! In answer to your question, [personal profile] eosrose, this was hugely helpful for me! The length was good (anything over a week and I tend to fail out), the daily check-ins helped keep me on track, as did the cheering on comments from everyone else.

I would love to participate in this again whenever you decide to run it or any other podfic challenges that might appear. Thank you!!!!

*collapses in a heap* I seriously have no idea how some podficcers manage to create long podfics every week. I didn't finish anything and I'm exhausted. ♥

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: recorded/edited/cover-arted/uploaded Accept No Substitutes (7004 words).

Did you reach your goals?

Goals were:
1. Word count you wish to record: 30,000

DONE! I recorded 30747 words total!

2. Word count you wish to edit: 20,000

DONE! I edited 30747 words total!

3. Other goals for the week: start one big bang (I'm in three, jesus) and get all my awesome ladies stuff posted to AO3 as soon as it's released.

I did post all my Awesome Ladies podfics to AO3, but I did NOT end up starting a big bang. I still have lots of time, though, for those, so meh! No problem.

Yay for making significant progress under trying circumstances!

Thank you for running this! I got far more done than I would have otherwise, and the encouragement I received from other podficcers was a really great experience.

Edited ~18 minutes of podfic today.

Well, my goal this week was to finish editing and post two podfics totaling 17K words. In retrospect, this goal was Highly Unrealistic, given my best podficcing speed is still very slooooooow, but I did finish one podfic and made progress on the other one.

I definitely found this community a useful motivator and would do it again!

Wow, really impressed with everyone's progress! Thanks to our fantastic mod, and to everyone who cheered me on through the week, y'all are fabulous xoxo

My Goals were intended to be low-stress yet require (mostly) daily attention:
(1) Upload 5-7 podfic to the Audiofic Archive
(2) Rec 1-2 podfic at podfic_love

And yay, success! Five podfic uploaded and two recs :)

Commentary
I appreciated the motivation and encouragement to do something daily. Things can be accomplished even with little steps! I'll make every effort to participate again, and who knows? Maybe next time I'll be in a position to have more challenging goals :)

I wasn't able to do anything more after yesterday's check-in, but I had already technically met my original goals at that point so I am quite pleased!

Recording Goal: n/a

Editing Goal:Complete first pass though the last 6k words of an 11k word fic.
Completed! Yes!

Other Goals: A bit of line-insertion on another fic. Which, technically, I did, because although I did not finish everything, my goal was "only a bit" ;)

Commentary
This group thing was immensely helpful. I'm not a very prolific podficcer (understatement) and I'm not super active online in the first place, so I have no doubt that without this group my total podficcing activity this week would have been ZERO.
I look forward to doing this again. Maybe that's how I'll end up completing the FINAL passes on these 2 fics... :D

Recording
Goal: ~15,000 words | Completed: ~10,000 words

Editing
Goal: 37,500 words | Completed: ~9,000 words

Other Goals
Post 11 podfics. I, er, haven't posted any (yet).

Commentary
I set my goals pretty high in eternal optimism, but forgot that the Olympics are on. I'm actually pretty happy about how much I recorded and edited considering the distractions.

This was most definitely helpful. The accountability meant I got something done whereas otherwise I wouldn't have even done that. I'd love to participate in the future.

Recording
Goal: 750 words | Completed: 750 words

Editing
Goal: 1000 words | Completed: 300 words

Other Goals (1) make coverart for my [livejournal.com profile] scully_fest podfic -- achieved!

(2) post my [livejournal.com profile] scully_fest podfic -- achieved! I even cross-posted, yay.

(3) listen to one podfic from my backlog -- I listened to three or four!

Commentary Even though I didn't achieve all of my goals, I feel like I achieved success in doing a little bit most days and in getting stuff done overall. I would definitely participate again!

*twirls you* Well done!!! I'm with you, that having that little bit of pressure to do something each day helped me actually accomplish things, rather than putting it off to another day. ♥

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. ♥
