Deep in the drudgeries of Twitter, I discovered a lord of demons named Aeshma. In my quest to understand this demon, I uncovered more information about an old, old religion I’d never heard of that shares enough similarities with the religion I’ve built in ACHILLEA to freak me out.
The same thing happened to a friend of mine who accidentally wrote part of the Kalevala after the fact.
Beyond that, I have a lot to update you on about my projects and how much I’ve gotten done in the past week.
So this video covers the glimmers of Zoroastrianism in ACHILLEA, my editing on current projects, and the ten chapters I have read of EMERGENCE, as well as the new workspace.
Happy New Year to all of you! May 2017 be sweet to you.

I completed my fifty-thousand word goal for NaNoWriMo a few days ago. I’m continuing to write as Emergence isn’t quite finished yet, but I am very happy with my progress.
The injury to my hand appeared to get better with the heat and splinting. I felt it was in a good way so I took off my splint day before yesterday and managed to worsen the healing injury. As a result, typing is slower than usual! I’m finding even the most tiny of things difficult as the hand is such a complex joint, and you forget how much you use your hands–even your non-dominant one! But, I’m getting there!
I’ve received most of the My Little Ponies for my collection which I ordered this past week and a half. Very pleased with all of them, and even included a few G2 and Equestria type, even though they are not my favourites. In fact, I’d go so far as to say I hate Equestria and think G2 ponies are ugly, but they came in a couple of bundles so I have them as part of a more fuller collection. (Though, I am getting to like the G2 a little XD) I’ve lost count of how many I have in my collection. It was over 700 last year, but I sold some so I need to do a recount of all the ponies. I bought the little houses and castles and nursery for display purposes. I have been collecting these for years and don’t have a single pony on display!
As for drawing, I haven’t even attempted to draw a thing for a few weeks. I did buy a My Little Pony adult colouring in book, purely as a part of the collection you understand….and I coloured some of that in while I was unable to type! Colouring in is almost as relaxing as sticking stickers into my sticker albums XD
That’s it for now! I hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend! I’m away to write for a while 😀 Bye for now!
