This week we are both in flurry of things that need to be done with deadlines in the very, very near future. It is stressful, and we talk about some of the side effects of that. We also discuss our progress on those projects, and wrap it all up by talking to artist and fellow traveller Laura Garabedian.
This week we talk about what happens to us mentally when we finish a big project. We also discuss how outlining a novel is like doing a project plan, as well as how that goes sideways once the project is underway. I wrap it all up by talking to Seraphim Dibble and how they stay productive.

This week we will talk about the difficulties our Wombat Co-Host (artist and author Ursula Vernon) is having with design and fonts, and how that is actually an Agile process. We don’t dig too deep into Agile and Scrum, but we do give a brief summary of what they are and how they are (and aren’t) used. We also check in with the Teenage Test Subject, and then talk to Sandra Tayler about how she stays productive.
This week on our productivity check-in, we talk about the projects we are both moving forward on. It is a good week so far, and added to that, I get to share the talk I had with Howard Tayler a few months ago. Enjoy!
This week my Wombat Co-Host and I discuss dealing with the emotional impact of job hunting, the holidays, and some of the related challenges. After that, we take some time to talk to Christy “Lilisonna” Howard about how she stays productive in both her professional and personal lives.
Hi everyone. This week we have, in no particular order, an absent Teenager, a recovering Wombat Co-Host, and convention prep to be done. So we are going right to the interview with Biologist, Cartographer, Carpenter, and Writer Chris Scheiner. Enjoy!
So here it is, Episode 50. This week, we will discuss some of the challenges of no longer being tied to an office schedule, our Wombat Test Subject (Ursula Vernon) discusses the realization that she likely has ADD, and we’ll put Kevin in the hot-seat to answer the seven questions (which he has never done).
This week we will be talking about email. Recently I’ve been working with two products to help me with my email sorting and processing. Then we’ll check in with the recovering Wombat Test Subject, who is between projects right now. After that we’ll talk with friend of the show Will Frank about how he stays productive.
After a great time at OpenSource 101 in Columbia SC, the Wombat Test Subject (author and illustrator Ursula Vernon) and I will talk about using Kanban boards. We also start to discuss burnout (which will be an ongoing discussion), and Kevin takes some time to talk to Alan Wexelblat about how he stays productive.
