I've fixed a bug in the blog's Random-Anonymous-Name-Generator-inator. It worked too well and overwrote any name with a randomly generated one. Oops.
The Checkered Scissors sequel is on the iPad for me to read through it and make notes for the next wave of editing.
Several months ago, I had written scripts for six episodes of The Mr. Doug Show, intended to be a YouTube series. Revisiting this, I've made some notes on how to improve it.
The first draft of the Scooby Doo fan-fiction is done.
I've set a goal to try to post one writing blog each Wednesday. I got a jump on this and wrote a few extras. Also, to help keep up with blogs, I have pulled many of the old writing blogs from LiveJournal. Hopefully, this will help me keep up with my blogging goals.
Finally, on Saturday, I volunteered at a book drive to help collect books for the reconstruction of Port Arthur's public library that was destroyed during hurricane Harvey. While I was there, we gathered fifty boxes filled with books. After I left, we gathered another ten boxes. This was just the first of a few book drives we will have over the summer. Off to a fantastic start.
