1. Hipster PDA: Month view

Being able to quickly see my schedule for two months totally, totally rocks. My iPAQ didn't have the screenspace for something like that, but my 3x5" pack of index cards with some inserts from an organizer. In particular, aforementioned monthly templates make planning get-togethers so much easier. I can print index cards for these too, but then it'd be a hassle to design the template and print it back-to-back. Anyway, this totally rocks.

(I also had another epiphany earlier: we're actually planning gimmicks! We have a social life! We have a barkada! Nifty. Now I just need to make sure I keep in touch with other people I know, too...)

2. Diarist prompts

Categories: None — Permalink

I'm looking for a daily or weekly source of writing prompts. I'd like prompts that tend toward self-discovery rather than fiction, and I'm considering using http://www.diarist.net/spark for everyday or every-other-day reflections.

The "If..." Project: Tough questions each month to make writers reach deep within and really examine our thoughts, our memories, our values, our beliefs.

That sounds really good, but the website isn't functional. I remember seeing the If book before, but I haven't seen it lately and I don't know if Dominique can find a copy. Then again, judging from the Amazon page on If, it looks like it contains a lot of fluffy questions as well. I guess you can't be serious all of the time. =)
