Hey everyone! I’d like to take this time to apologize for the lack of updates both here and on EsoTarot; I’ve been extremely busy of late, and actually haven’t gotten much done. However, I would like to update you all on what has been going on.
First and foremost, I’m back at university and almost taking a course overload. That alone has made getting work done difficult. One of the courses I am taking is an intensive independent study on the evolution of Persian culture from the Sasanian Empire until the Ghaznavids and the Persian Revival, so much of my spare time has gone into research.
Secondly, I will be acting as a Municipal Liaison for NaNoWriMo this year, so I’ve been busy plotting write-ins and other things as well. What little time I have to spare after ML-preparation and university goes either to sleeping, eating, or Astral Tide. As such, I haven’t had time to continue my study of astrology overly much, or edit The Libel of Blood often, either.
However, I have managed to edit some (I have edited through chapter 20/46 at this point), and I have written two pieces of prose poetry that will hopefully be made available to read soon (called “The Playground” and “Lord of Carrion”). I am also (slowly, in between and during classes) working on a third piece of flash fiction called for the moment “Nightmare Fleet.” It is based somewhat on the end of The Libel of Blood, albeit with a very different twist.
Unfortunately, amidst all of this busy stuff, I have become rather stressed. As such, I am making it my goal to, over the next week, try to edit as much of The Libel of Blood as I can before NaNo starts, and then use the time left over to get ahead on my independent study research, freeing up more time for me in November. After November I will hopefully have a lot more free time. I’ll also try to keep you all updates; if you’re not already, following me on Twitter and liking me on Facebook will greatly assist you in stalking me. Adios for now!
