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! 😎
The Robert de Boron Cycle.
The new schedule is helping to assure that I do not burn out. 😱
Presently at 6 July 2018 in my emails. Always keep in mind that I am going backward through my email messages. The number of sources in the Grand Bibliography are 1701. Total pages in the manuscript are 1240. For those who are not aware, this project is the culmination of my studies and research within the whole of Arthuriana from 1972 to the present day 😀
Tomorrow (Saturday 23 November – Doctor Who day, incidentally) through Saturday 30 November are my next off days. My schedule includes (for the second month now) a “week” off at the end of each month. The only blog posts that might occur during that period would be to inform you of new Arthurian Literature posts of mine on the Arthurian Legends blog; and to inform you of any additional authors for Afterwords and Forewords. Remember we are now at 14, only 18 left to go! Almost halfway there! 😊
I will recommence on Sunday 1 December 2019. As always, I will keep up with my social media every day. 😛
Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
We are at thirteen (13) authors now. Only nineteen (19) left to go! 😁
Glad to have Jason onboard for The History volume’s Foreword. If anyone wants to volunteer for other volumes, or for The History volume’s Afterword, let me know! 😀
Until tomorrow (Sunday), True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
We are now at twelve (12) authors plus me. Flint F Johnson is going to be writing the Afterword to The Introduction volume. 😁
I will be uploading my regular post shortly. 😎
I would like to thank all of those authors who have so far offerred to write Forewords and Afterwords. Twenty (20) slots left to fill! 😀
Submitted my Vita Sancti Euflami article for the Arthurian Legends blog. Am now back to 14 November 2018 in my email. Sources are 1606. Pages, 1231. 😀
Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. Next article to write will be Vita Sancti Paterni. I hope to have that and the article of Vita Sancti Carantoci finished by month’s end as well. Although, there are two versions of Vita Carantoci (noted as Prima and Secunda). I am sure that article will be a little more involved.
Until tomorrow, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
In spite of today’s intermittent schedule, I did accomplish a variety of things. To 3 February 2019 in email. Sources are 1573. Pages, 1226.
Going to write three articles this month for the Arthurian Legends blog: Vita Sancti Euflami (Life of Saint Efflam), Vita Sancti Paterni (Life of Saint Padarn), and Vita Sancti Carantoci (Life of Saint Carannog). 😁
Figured out that I am going to have to learn Vedic Sanskrit to thoroughly be able to research the Rigveda, specifically the geography of the text. There is a very odd connection between the river Rasā (rásā रसा) in the Rigveda and the Egyptian Sun God Ra or Re (most accurately pronounced “ray”). It ties into the History volume of Circle of Logres. More on that later.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. I will be back on Friday.
Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Suffice it to say that technology is either functioning or it is not functioning. I have ultimately triumphed. 😁
That being said, I have shifted gears a bit. Currently at 1354 sources, 1204 pages. I no longer really have “total sources on the increase” as my work-day goal. It is a mix of a few new sources and being sure that I have digital, physical, or both of all existing sources.
I was also a bit side-tracked by my next two articles for the Arthurian Legends blog (he already has six of my previous articles still in the queue, scheduled to be posted in the Literature section over the next few months). I have begun the outlines for both of my newest articles.
These next two articles are Legenda Sancti Goeznovii (Legend of Saint Goeznovius), and Vita Sancti Cadoci (Life of Saint Cadoc). Please do not confuse the second one with Vita Sancti Carantoci, both the Prima and Secunda of it. Saint Cadoc is not the same as Saint Carannog (otherwise known as Carantoc). I will probably end up writing an article on Vita Sancti Carantoci (both Prima and Secunda) either next month or the month after. We shall see how everything else goes.
So, tomorrow (Monday) continues my dive into my email and the searching out of copies of sources to have (offline) at my disposal.
Until tomorrow, Excalibur! 😎
Am now at 1180 sources, and 1185 pages. Tomorrow (Saturday) is one of my two off days. I hope to be finished with these last two physical folders by Sunday or Monday.
Then I will go through my email for a few errant sources. After which I will make sure that I have a physical and/or digital copy of every source in the Bibliography.
There may be some of the sources that will need to be separated into a Reading Bibliography or List. We shall see how those previously outlined steps proceed.
Until Sunday, true believers, Excalibur! 😎😀😁😀😎
Yeah. It has been a bit taxing today. Regardless, I am now at 1127 sources and 1178 pages. I hope to finish these last 2 folders soon. Tomorrow will tell.
