In the Ideal World …

… there are three of everything. I do my best in terms of adhering to that maxim. It is especially important to me when I find scans of rare and important texts. I do my utmost to have three of everything within that arena. I backup data to two separate locations. So today was mostly concentrating on having both physical and digital copies of source texts. 😁

The Grand Bibliography has 2152 sources. The manuscript is 1284 pages. Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Summary of Current Strategy ✌❤🚀

My most recent tasks during my work or “on” days have been an attempted balance between checking source content for my physical copies of texts (sometimes overlapping with having them also in digital form); locating copies of any kind (physical, digital, excerpts) for the Mediæval Source texts that require it; and attempting to finish sorting my old emails (which contain sources and/or source links). I wish to “freeze” the Grand Bibliography ASAP; but it must happen at a logical juncture. Things are moving way too slowly for my taste. As I get all of the ducks in a row for the entire project’s structure, things will move much more quickly (in theory). This is a culmination of over four decades of research. It is also the first time that literally all of my notes and research have been put in one place. It is truly colossal. I am here alone, so I must do everything that needs to be done. Today is a work day, so I need to accomplish tasks. Look for my regular blog post later. 😎

Still processing … 😳😱😶

The Grand Bibliography has 2137 sources now. Eventually, each of the sixteen (16) volumes will have a Bibliography for Cited Sources, and a Bibliography for Further Reading. The manuscript for The Introduction volume is 1282 pages. 😊

Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. Until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Too many errands, still accomplished some things. 😁

Made it back to 6 February 2018 in my emails. The Grand Bibliography is 2027 sources. The manuscript is 1270 pages. 😀

Tomorrow (Saturday) is an off day. Until Sunday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Bit under the weather, but still accomplished things. 😳

Been a complex and busy day. Made it to 2 March 2018 in my emails (still working backward in time). The Grand Bibliography is currently at 1977 sources. The manuscript for this Introduction volume is 1266 pages. 😁

Tomorrow (Saturday) is an off day. Until Sunday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Tiring day. 😶

Did make some progress. Made it back to 18 March 2018 in my emails. The Grand Bibliography contains 1963 sources. Manuscript is 1265 pages. 😀

Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. Until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Last work day of the year. 😳

As I said in Wednesday’s blog post, I am taking an additional week off at the end of each year. I will return on Sunday 5 January 2020. 😀

I will keep up my daily social media, and eventually answer msgs. 😂

Made it to 10 April 2018 in my email. The Grand Bibliography is 1882 sources. The manuscript to the Introduction volume is 1258 pages. 😁

Until next year, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

An odd day that is ending well. 😁

Started the day with slow and malfunctioning technology. Wasn’t just me. It was other computers as well, across the vastness of the net. 😱

Things eventually picked up speed. Ending the work day on a positive note. 🎵

This was my second to last work day of the year. I have decided to change one more aspect of my monthly schedule. It will now be a yearly schedule. I will be adding the previous week to my already-established “last week of the month” component. Therefore, in this present year, I shall be off from Saturday 21 December 2019 to Saturday 4 January 2020. My first work day of the New Year will be Sunday 5 January 2020. 😀

This extra “week off” will only occur in December of each year. As it stands, Friday 20 December 2019 is my last work day of the year. Today, I am at 12 April 2018 in my email. The wonderful Grand Bibliography includes a total of 1873 sources. Pages total for the Introduction volume’s manuscript is 1257. 😊

Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. So, until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

A little bit of this, a little bit of that. 😀

Sent out requested emails to potential additional authors for the Afterwords and Forewords to each of the sixteen volumes (currently at fourteen authors). 😱

At 2 May 2018 in my email. Grand Bibliography is 1846 sources. Manuscript is 1254 pages. 😁

Tomorrow (Saturday) is an off day. Until Sunday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Different kind of work day. 😶

Had a very late start. Then I had to coordinate 12 of the 14 authors we currently have onboard. We set up a Messenger chat group. Looks like a private group on FB will work better. We will figure it out. 😁

As far as the manuscript for The Introduction volume, it is at 1252 pages. The Grand Bibliography is at 1830 sources. At 9 May 2018 in my email. 😳

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. I will be decompressing and relaxing. Until Wednesday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
