The pace of a 200-day project.
Weekends, a new experience, keeping a diary.
I’ve started work on a publishing project. I estimate it will take 200 days to complete.
I’ve made a schedule.
The aim is to work no more than 4 hours a day on the project - So I can give it my best energy. I warm up before each session and use an ice pack on my wrist after each session. I’m pacing myself.
Weekends are off. A time to play, practice and create without constraint.
It’s a new experience working daily but not being able to share anything. I miss the constant feedback, but there is an excitement about working on something for a longer time period — an excitement building for when I show it to the client.
I’m keeping a diary of the project, but it may be years before I will be able to share it. I log my work for the day and how it mapped towards my plans. As well as little daily insights from working on a project of this scale.
