# What are your zettelkasting plans for 7 August - 13 August 2022?

edited August 2022

Please tell the community what you've been working on and share your plans for your zettelkasting this week.

### This past week found me doing:

• On Friday, my ZK surpassed 700k words, and by the end of the month, it may surpass 3k zettel. I'm slowly developing a sense of progress.

• I gave up on the "Full Screen" workflow. I couldn't get it working with my Keyboard Maestro macros. I was having no fun.
• Discovered a minor bug in my favorite advanced search querying macro.

### My current plans for this coming week:

• I will work all out on a minor bug in my favorite advanced search querying macro. It likely will require some more Regular Expression pixy-dust.
• Reading - The Narrow Road To The Deep North by Matsuo Basho - Travel Journal
• Reading - The Book Of Form And Emptiness by Ruth Ozeki - Fiction

### Here are a few of the titles of zettel I've been working on last week.

These, along with the migration of 55 #code-snippets, make last week a ZK-focused week. Looking back, it feels like I only spent maybe two open and enjoyably stimulating hours per day working in my ZK. By working, I mean bathing in mind-weather and writing.

• keep trying to use the "incremental writing" concept I discovered last week.
Integration in gardening and Spaced Repetition routines.
Should not become an additional construction site, just a tool.
