Although I told myself that I wouldn’t because it is too expensive and I already have the previous version, I relented and I bought it. I do kind of need some application like that to help me to organise myself when I am working for my own stuff during the winter break. OmniFocus is the best for this type of organisation and so I decided to shell out the cash. I will use it to follow through on the Snowflake Method for writing the novel during NaNoWriMo this year. So during October I will complete one stage of the organisational phase one after the other and then I will be completely ready for the 50,000 word sprint to the finish in November. I like to think that with all of the organisational outlining that I will do using the Snowflake Method that I will be able to bash out 60 or 70,000 words with ease.
One of the things that I need to work on is the actual using of OmniFocus for iPad and OmniFocus for Mac. These two applications do work synchronously with each other which is pretty useful. Seeing as I already have the latest version of the Mac OmniFocus, it was another reason for me updating on the iPad. At least I was able to get into the pro version without paying any extra money due to already having the previous version on the iPad already. It was the same process also with the Mac version when I upgraded.
I don’t know where I will find the time!
With all of the writing that I have planned over the next few months I wonder how I am going to find the time to do the exercising and also learning to play the guitar. I bought the Rocksmith 2014 Edition
game/application for my Mac so that I can connect my guitar to it and play a game to improve my guitar playing. I keep looking at the DVD on the shelf and I need to copy it over to the Mac with an external DVD drive. My internal DVD drive doesn’t work. The DVD up there, it is kind of like it is haunting me. Even so, I think I should use the OmniFocus application in order to schedule some time, even if it is only a half an hour per day, to pick up the guitar.
It is the same sort of thing with the exercising as I won’t have the running in and out to Platja d’Aro on the bicycle, nor will I have all of the walking that I do while I am at work for keeping me fit. The dog will benefit from having longer walks and I will still be able to do one or two things for my work, while I’m walking. This will be the case to case of having the iPhone 6 with me and I will be able to use Siri to do some dictation. It might only be the case that I can just record some notes and I will try using Siri to do speech to text directly. If that doesn’t work then I can also do some audio recording of my voice that I can transcribe the later. I will also plan on having some trips out on the bicycle which will be great for the fitness and save me from using the car. While on the bike I can’t do much except ride, I can’t even listen to much as the wind noise means I can’t hear any podcasts unless they are loud or I ride slower.
