If it weren’t for my projects, I might take the whole of 2023 as a year-long vacation.
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! 😎
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! 😎
My laptop finally destabilised its Wndows 10. The most recent update hosed it up. Uninstalling the update didn’t help. Doing a system restore failed to complete. Suffuce to say that I ended up doing a complete resetting of the laptop. Spent all day with this. I really just need a real PC not a laptop, unless a better laptop would suffice, but I doubt it.
Well. I am rightly screwed. I did a complete reset of the laptop. Now all it does is boot to the HP logo screen, then shuts down and reboots again, and again, and again. It won’t even go into safe mode or into automatic repair mode. It is stuck in an endless rebooting loop. I am completely dead in the water. I cannot do all I need to do on my mobile. My important data are safe on my external drives. But all is useless without a computer. I do not have the disposable income necessary to replace the computer.
Today is over. I will sleep. Maybe I will wake up to $1000 in my PayPal account. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
But I somehow doubt it. I really don’t know how I will be able to continue my work. Goodnight. 😴😡😴😡😴
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! 😎
Currently on source 1716 out of 2886. Goal is to be completely through the Grand Bibliography by year’s end. If not, the release date of the first volume might be pushed to June 2024 instead of 2023. We shall see how the next few months progress.
With that in mind, look to receive my next update in August. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
On source 1278 of 2844 in the Grand Bibliography. Posting updates once per month on the first official work day of the month. Doing my best to stay on schedule. May have to move the deadline for the project out another year. We shall see what Summer brings. Until next time, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
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! 😎
On source 958 out of 2838 in the Grand Bibliography. Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are full work days. Tuesday and Thursday are half work days. Saturday is off day. Will be continuing with monthly updates. Until April, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
At source 645 out of 2780 total sources in the Grand Bibliography. It is my hope that 2021 will be considerably more productive than 2020. I have decided to give two Sunday updates per month. Not sure when the second post for January will be, but all of the first monthly updates will occur on the first work day of each month. 😁
So, until the second update for January 2021, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
