First Week of New Phase. 😁

Up to source 137 out of 2704 total. This phase to going source by source to reconcile those listed in the Manuscript with the sources referenced in the Grand Bibliography shortcuts folder. There is an additional effort to be sure that physical and/or digital copies of each source exist here locally; not to mention any additional recombination of sources, especially web-based ones. Work days are still Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Next update will be in one week on Sunday 27 September 2020. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First of Many Weekly (Sunday) Updates. 😁

Now that a shifting-of-gears is occurring, it has been decided that these posts shall only occur on Sundays for a while. Reconciling the Bibliography as listed in the Manuscript with the Bibliography that appears in the shortcuts folder for the Grand Bibliography is not something that needs posting four days per week. Currently up to #71 out 2700 sources. Their number is already decreasing. Tomorrow (Monday), as well as Wednesday and Friday, is another work day. So, until the next update on Sunday 20 September 2020, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Grand Bibliography is officially “frozen”. 😁

Finished with old emails. The Manuscript is 1395 pages. The Grand Bibliography is “frozen” at 2732 sources. The next phase is the reconciliation of the Bibliography in the Manuscript with the shortcuts folder for the Grand Bibliography. This will include recombination of sources, especially web-based ones. So, the total number of sources will decrease. After that, any missing physical, digital, or “otherwise extracted” source material will be located and added to the shortcut folder. Then topic-area-corresponding shortcuts will be copied to the appropriate subfolders. The Bibliography of Cited Sources and Bibliography for Further Reading will be tentatively determined for the encyclopædia-set volumes. The upcoming days will be spent preparing for these next phases. So the next blog post will occur as an update on my progress by Sunday 13 September 2020. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Almost Ready to Freeze Grand Bibliography. 😳

Back to 10 November 2017 in email. Manuscript is 1395 pages. Grand Bibliography has 2721 sources. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. So, until Wednesday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Work Day of the Month. 🙃

Grand Bibliography has 2702 sources. Manuscript is 1393 pages. Tomorrow (Monday) is supposed to be another work day. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Definitely Last Work Day of August. 😶

Slow and Stupid are the words for August. My scheduled first work day for next month is Sunday 6 September 2020. We shall see if that schedule holds true. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. That off day shall last at least up to and including Saturday 5 September 2020. The Grand Bibliography has 2658 sources. The Manuscript is 1387 pages. So, until September, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

This Month has been Tiresome and Tedious. Ending monthly work day schedule early. 😶

Tomorrow (Monday) will most likely be my last official work day of this month. That being said, my latest Arthurian Legends blog article submission will be completed by month’s end. It is my hope that I will resume the next month’s work schedule on Sunday 6 September. I make no guarantees. I will do my best. Only 59 of my remaining sources require incorporation into the Grand Bibliography, which presently stands at 2651 sources. Hoping to “freeze” that bibliography soon. There are still some “sources” that require combination with others under single headings. This is particularly true of both web-based sources and multi-book sets. The Manuscript has 1388 pages. That, too, shall be edited down over the course of the remainder of this year and into the next, while various quotes and citations are sorted. There are a few “Mediæval Texts” of which I have cited, but are yet to be in my possession in the form of complete physical and/or digitally scanned copies (for completeness-sake). I had never dreamed that this project would be so completely overwhelming in and of my life. So, until my next post, my True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Feeling A Bit Burnt. 😐

Need more off days. 😜

Grand Bibliography has 2645 sources. Manuscript is 1385 pages. Tomorrow (Saturday) is an off day. Until Sunday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Tedious Day. 😐

Disentangling ownership of various Arthuriana and Arthuriana-related swords and other weapons. Grand Bibliography has 2635 sources. Manuscript is 1382 pages. Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. So, until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Gaining Traction. 😁

Grand Bibliography has 2634 sources. Manuscript is 1381 pages. Hope to have the Grand Bibliography “frozen” by month’s end. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. So, until Wednesday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
