Hi everyone, I'm trying something new in my journal. By now I'm sure you all know to at least some extent that I work as a games walkthrough and review writer. The only downside of this job is that I'll get assignments at a moment's notice, and then must drop everything to get them done. This is my primary source of income, so it takes priority over commissions. I've done some sporadic updating in my journal before to give a heads up on a new assignment, but I don't want to keep doing that in the future. So, I'm adding a new "section" a little further down in my journal. You'll be able to identify it by this icon:
From now on, I'll update in my journal whether or not I have a game assignment without writing a new journal or putting it in people's message centers as something new. I think this will be helpful in if someone is wondering why I'm taking a long time to reply to something, or if their commission is in the "coloring" status but hasn't been posted for a few days, you can look at the game assignment status. If I'm working on an assignment, this means it will be a few days until I resume and/or finish coloring, working on commissions, etc. Game assignments take an average of 4 days to complete from the day I receive them. When I'm finished, the "Working" status will be updated back to "None" or "N/A" etc without posting a new journal to let everyone know.
I will be updating this feature loyally, so if you ever want to know you can simply check the journal on my front page. Thanks everyone!
