First Official Work Day of June 2022.

Am finally through that mythology dictionary. Currently on source 2283 out of 2894 total. At present, on schedule for the first volume to be released June 2024. I will certainly know more by year’s end.

Until next month, dear readers, Excalibur! 😎

First Official Work Day of February 2022. 🤓

The content of the present manuscript for The Introduction volume is 1080 pages. Current Bibliography is 470 pages (2899 sources). When the End Notes and Index are complete, that will easily add another 500 pages. In total, it would make sense to break up each of the sixteen volumes into A and B volumes. The A volume would include a Table of Contents, and the Contents itself. The B volume would include an End Notes section, Bibliography of Sources Cited, Bibliography for Further Reading, and a thorough Index

This arrangement divides up the material into two approximately 1000-page volumes. It allows for ease of use in terms of having the A volume open to a particular passage and simultaneously consulting the B volume’s End Notes for the Citations in that passage contained within the A volume. The reverse is also convenient (looking up a topic in the Index, while simultaneously finding the appropriate page in the Contents).

In doing so, this may delay the publication of the first volume, yet again. But we shall see what occurs as time marches on. Until next month’s update, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Official Work Day of November 2021.

Still immersed in that Mythology Dictionary from two months ago. I may indeed have to add another year to the publishing schedule (Introduction volume being published in June 2024 instead of how it is presently listed on the website as June 2023). We shall see how things go after the first of the year. Until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Official Work Day of October 2021 😳

Have been a bit stalled in the Grand Bibliography. Fleshing out a Mythology Dictionary as part of the Bibliography. Have also been editing the main page at http://www.CircleOfLogres.com

At the 1865th source out of 2901. October will be productive in terms of getting through the remainder of the Grand Bibliography. Until the next update, 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! 😎
