|01:53 pm - Accomplishments!|
Yow: the past week's been a bit of a speedy run downhill!
I've brought some projects to completion recently:
- I spent some time revising and revamping the Dedicants page on the ADF members' side so that it's a lot more descriptive, and also got the "new" edition (edited, finally!) up on the site.
- After that, I completed over half of Trance 2 on Saturday night at the Midnight Flame Festival (which already has dates for next year up).
- Then, this morning I completed and published the guidebook (see the cover on the right) for the ADF Order of the Crane. Once I have a copy of it in-hand (hopefully by Thursday), I think we'll be ready to go forward with the Order itself, which is completely "done" in terms of initial development.
It was a hell of a time to come back to real life and get back to work, though. The festival last weekend was amazing, as always, and I had a hell of a lot of fun. Plus, I got to spend around 16 total hours in the car with druidkirk talking about all sorts of nifty things, both within and without ADF.
The Trance 2 near-completion is what boggles my mind most of all, though: I didn't think I'd actually manage that before October, but now it seems I will. . . and in time for the Clergy Retreat, which also means that it'll be in time to get myself initiated into this new ADF Initiatory Current.
Then, I can tie the Order of the Crane into that current, as well, at least partially.
That's motivation, really. It's also a plan.
Wow, just. . . wow.

Ooo, a shiny new book. Gimme, gimme, gimme. (That was me being patient.)
It'll be available as soon as the proofs come in and we're certain that it looks as good in print as it does online. And we might add some updates to it, too, so think about Oct. 1 or so as it being completely available.
(Eventually, I expect that this book will contain a complete system for getting through the IP. . . though that might be a ways off. . . we expect to update the book pretty regularly, so it may move through editions pretty rapidly, actually, as we flesh out the system.)
What! No copy I can download online for free right now, thereby depriving you and S of compensation for all your hard work and bypassing the in place review system. I am shocked, shocked I say. (OK not really, I'll wait till October). Keep up the good work, you are an invaluable asset. (and undoubtedly good looing in your new sarong as well (LOL)).
Hehe. I'm sure that it'll also be available for free :)
Seamus told me today that this was some of my best work yet, which surprised the hell outta me!
We shall see about that sarong. . .
Wow. I really can't keep up with all of your motivated accomplishments.
Also...I am impressed by them...Congrats!!!!
Sure you can :) It's not a race, anyway.
I meant it too! Maybe because it is something so close to me but I love the first draft and can't wait to begin to add to the Order! I must admit I was pleased to see that often times the separate parts that we each did fit seamlessly together. I find our voices in harmony on this and it is erie...I am impressed with with how quickly you pulled it all together. Great job, Michael! I am eager to begin the order with you. You continue to inspire me! I have been blessed to work with you over the last several years. THANK YOU for all you do!
When can we join the Order? I know there is a "subscribe here" link on the 3cg pages, but I wasn't sure if that was an active funtion yet...
It's active. I think we're going to be opening it up to all of ADF on. . . well, as soon as we're comfortable with the way the book works, I imagine, and as soon as Seamus and I are sure that everything is completely in order.
You know, in order for the order :)
