Weekly Wrap 668: Weird fatigue and a recent photo of Melbourne

My week of Monday 13 to Sunday 19 March 2023 was less productive than I’d hoped because fatigue levels were high. I don’t know why. This week’s Wrap is late, and very much a by-the-numbers exercise. Even the photo is from the other week.

Media Appearances

Articles, Podcasts, Photos, Videos, Corporate Largesse

None of these things. You can read my previous writing at Authory, where you can also subscribe to an email compilation of any new stories each Sunday morning. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified when new videos appear.

I didn’t do a digital developments post this week because the ANZUS nuclear submarine news crowded out pretty much everything else.


Just a couple of quick ones this week because I’m running late.

The Week Ahead

I have a huge amount of editorial and website work to do for a client, with some of it finally being published later this week. I’m looking forward to see what sort of reaction it gets.

I’ll also plan out my podcast productions for the next couple of months. I have yet to confirm the venue for the Public House Forum on Saturday 1 April, but I should get that done by the end of Tuesday.

Other than that, the NSW state election is on Saturday. I’ve already voted, but I’ll be watching the results come through on Saturday night with a friend in Sydney, and I’ll stay in Sydney through until Monday.
