Greetings! I am struggling with figuring out how to set up a specific craft goal (as opposed to the generalised beeminding of doing crafts, which I have posted about before).
Setup: I will be making a motif for a blanket for each book I read this year. Thus, about 250 motifs will need to be made in the year as a whole. I will only need to make motifs once I’ve read a book start to finish, so the rate will be highly variable.
So! I need some kind of goal that knows when I have a motif to make, and enforces me doing so within a reasonable length of time (3 days being the arbitrary amount I came up with). I thought about a flat line, and then using IFTTT to add a datapoint of -1 whenever I enter a datapoint on my reading goal, but that would require me to make the motif within the day to avoid derailing, and that’s not super practical.
It’s possible I’m missing some kind of obvious way to set this up. Nonetheless, I’m stuck. Halp?
