Still stuck in that Mythology Dictionary. Should be done with that soon. Was without a functioning computer for 16 days. New computer is finally configured optimally. I had to move the publishing date for the first book out another year (June 2024). Reality has become too weird. I will update next month. Until then, 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! 😎
First Official Work Day of April 2021. 😳
Currently at source 1205 out of 2838 in the Grand Bibliography for Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana. Making great progress. Steadily posting updates on the first official work day of each month. Recently diagnosed with PTSD. Hope to improve on that front over time.
So, until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Last Official Logres Update for 2020: Making Progress. 😁
Currently made it to source 598 out of 2736. That is approximately 22% (21.85672514619883…). Outlining the remainder of the year: this is the last official update for 2020. That does not mean that I might not post another update or two before 2021. It all depends on how much progress I continue to make. Technically, my “off week” for November started yesterday and will go through 5 December, inclusively. I have former school mates visiting 3rd through 5th. I will be “off schedule” for the remainder of December. That means I will still accomplish things, but at my leisure. The first work day for 2021 is scheduled as Sunday 3 January. Until then, 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! 😎
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! 😎
Tiring Last Work Day of the Month. 😣😠😢😶
I managed to accomplish a variety of things. They occurred in a rather haphazard manner. Still, the Grand Bibliography now has 2448 sources. The Manuscript is 1311 pages. According to my Monthly Schedule, today is my last work day of the month. My next off day is tomorrow (Saturday 28 March 2020). It will last through Saturday 4 April 2020. My first work day of April will be Sunday the 5th. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Technical Difficulties. 😣
Windows 10 is acting up. Should have the problem resolved by tomorrow, I hope. Meanwhile, this work day has consisted of continuing to organise my physical Arthuriana books and making sure that they are indeed part of the Grand Bibliography. Sometimes various lists, notes, and other scribblings do not match. Being OCD really helps in my ongoing efforts to make every aspect consistent. Tomorrow (Thursday) is still an off day. Friday is scheduled to be the last work day of the month. 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. 😎
