General Update: Mostly Good News

It's about time for another update; the end of the year is now very near and my work has slowed slightly as I dream of sugar plums and fairies (or, rather, the burning times, dark spells, and aberrant anthropological literature) but there are several very good things to report now.

1. I am a third of the way through the Canadian Herbal. The (poor) condition of the original text necessitates a more prolonged editing process but caffeine cures all!

2. I have completely edited another combination herbal-and-remedy booklet but have to illustrate it myself; this will take some time.

3. Other probably even better news that I will update everyone on at a later date (but that is highly significant.) Because this is not quite set in stone I won't bother speaking more of it until it is.

4. I have begun mentally outlining the general plot of Sickness in Hell II. I should probably tell you my basic process for works I am myself authoring; I plot it out as though I am mentally imagining a movie, and then break it into what amount to cinematic segments, each then titled, allowing me to use greater detail (because it is being visualized)- this is followed by basic notes and then the story is written.


  1. Thank you for that. I am struggling with writing a book. Visualising scenes -yes.
