Daily goal chart

The only time I’ve had success writing each day has been when I’ve made a physical chart, taped it up on my wall, and then filled in a box each day I hit my goal. It’s Jerry Seinfeld’s don’t break the chain idea, and it works remarkably well for me. My current streak (I don’t write on Sundays):

Since this seemed like it might be useful for others, I’ve made daily goal charts, available for free PDF download:

There’s also what I’m calling a “blank” chart, where you can write in the number of words you wrote (or anything else like that):

Charts for 2018 through 2023 are up. (I figure five years is enough for now.)

Ugaritic alphabet chart

After a year-long hiatus, I’m starting to get back into making language charts. Today’s offering is an (admittedly obscure) Ugaritic alphabet chart:

Russian alphabet chart

Just finished the aforementioned Russian alphabet chart:

It’s available in PDF as usual.

I’m working on a Russian alphabet chart at the moment. Things are mostly in place, with some spacing to do on some of the IPA bits, possibly adding cursive, and then sending the chart to some Russian speakers for proofing. It’s close.

Updated the Latin 1st conjugation chart — the passive subjunctive pluperfect plural was incorrectly using the singular forms. Thanks to John Batali for the heads up!

Updated the Latin declensions chart with a fix for fructus, which was incorrectly feminine (it’s masculine). Thanks to Chih-cheng Yuan for the heads up!

Latin and Thai chart source files

I’ve posted the PlotDevice source files to GitHub for the following charts:

I’ve also added the alternate vocative version of the declensions chart to the Latin declensions repo.

Latin declensions chart update

I’ve ported my Latin declensions chart to PlotDevice (from InDesign) and posted the source to GitHub. It’s now fairly easy to change the order of the cases and add new ones like the vocative. The chart itself is slightly different as well — spacing, colors, etc.

Latin pronouns chart

Nerdy newsflash: I made a Latin pronouns chart to go along with the conjugation charts and declensions chart:

There are several I didn’t include (quis, aliquis, ipse, etc.) because I wanted to keep it from getting too crowded.

As with the conjugations chart, I made this in PlotDevice.
