Lost in the Movies: Final Plan to reach & complete Journey Through Twin Peaks (keeping track)

Final Plan to reach & complete Journey Through Twin Peaks (keeping track)

A list of ongoing work
updated daily with the latest progress (in red)

Begins on November 22, 2023
Last update: March 1, 2024

(focusing on Twin Peaks Characters)

Completed 6 of probably 81* steps
including 3 upcoming public entries that have been previewed on Patreon
(+ additional 7 from before November 22)
& not including monthly $5/month tier rewards/bonuses
*initially 73 steps, latest added on February 13

When I concluded my public film writing and podcasts in October 2023, I decided it was time to re-present the consistently-updated list of priority projects which I'd used to track my progress for two years. The steps (or obstacles) to resuming my Journey Through Twin Peaks video series have been simplified and streamlined, limited mostly to two other big Twin Peaks projects - the Lost in Twin Peaks public podcast and the TWIN PEAKS Character Series. From this point forward, the only regular monthly distraction will be my exclusive $5/month tier rewards (the $1/month rewards are simply advance entries from the character series). I am debating working on two other video projects before Journey, partly as a warm-up, and will definitely have a handful of Twin Peaks conversations both on my own platform and on others'. You can also hear more about my publication schedule in this video (embedded at the end of this post as well) and follow my progress in a new Twitter thread.

Here are the projects in rough order of priority (although I will work on several simultaneously), with further details and the most up-to-date information on each...

1) concluding Lost in Twin Peaks public podcast

(a week on each episode w/ an illustrated companion)
