Three Things: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
I’ve been wanting to get a little more user interaction on the site, and I’m hoping you’ll help me try something new out. I’m very curious to hear more from the folks who browse this site, both the people I know and the people who might have just wandered here off the Internet, randomly. I share a lot of what I see and do, and I guess I’m just curious to learn a little more about you.
I got the idea to create a new section called “Three Things,” where the post would be less of an entry by me… and more of an invitation for people to contribute their thoughts and stories.
The idea is this: every “Three Things” post will be a kind of prompt. Feel free to answer it however you like: write an essay, write a single word, totally up to you.
- What’s something you did yesterday?
- What is something you’re doing today?
- What is something you will do tomorrow?
Ok – here goes.
Today I made coffee using a french press and the Intelligentsia Coffee app. I know this is sacrilege to purists, but I didn’t use fresh grounds. I’m up super early, and don’t care to grind coffee due to the noise it makes. So I ground up my coffee the night before.
Although, truth be told, I ground up my coffee on like Sunday night, with plans to make coffee early Monday morning. I didn’t quite get around to “waking up early” this week, and today’s the first day. So that coffee’s been sitting around a while.
I’m guessing my friend Matt is dropping his monocle in shock right now. But I tell you what… this coffee still tastes pretty damn good.
Tomorrow I’m planning to have a good chunk of time to work on my poetry project. My goal will be to pick up some coffee on my way home at New Wave, then plop myself in front of my computer for a few hours.
I’ve been slowly building out the functionality I need from the project website, and my next phase is to try to figure out how I can “seed” the site with a small amount of videos/content. I’m planning on making a list of people I want to contact (both people I know, and potentially famous writers, Internet celebs, etc) and start to put together all the logistics: creating the lists, writing the invitation email and instructions, determining the timelines I want to hit.
A lot of what I’m doing is done with an eye towards launching in April, which is National Poetry Month. It’s still over a month away, but it feels like a looming deadline. I have a huge list of tasks to complete before April hits, and I’m hoping to have a productive work night, tomorrow night.
That’s it for me! Like I said, I’m just curious to hear a little more about what you’re up to, on your side of the screen. So drop a line in the comments below! I’d love to hear from you.
