Accountability Progress 1/12

Progress, once made, cannot be unmade. Thus it was, that the results for this week’s goals are now live!

Goal: Get to 21,000 words in The Last Gladiator:

Status: Completed! I managed to finish the big battle scene, and this is a big turning point in the novella.

Goal: Get a Square.

Status: Complete! I can now start taking online payments through Square and am looking to add a purchase tab to the blog (Yay!) Which will make it easier for people to order signed copies. I also should be receiving my free swipe reader any day now, which means that I can use it at my next event!

Goal: Decide which tablet to purchase.

After some online research and a load of discussion with family and relatives, I finally decided to not purchase a tablet. While a tablet at this point would really help me do more at events, I think I would do better to spend money on a banner for advertising at an event. My phone can use the Square app with the card reader, so a tablet isn’t critical.

Also, as my book proceeds are the thing directly funding this purchase, I’m somewhat limited in what I can and can’t purchase at this time. So was the goal met? No, but I’ll say that it will be shelved for a while until it’s need becomes more apparent.

Ciao! Look for a new Weekly accountability post tomorrow!
