Once again, I regret to inform the masses that this next "blog post" is still nowhere near its completion. Furthermore, I used the quotations because at 30,000+ words (so far) this next post is about twenty times as long as what a blog post should supposedly be. As if that weren't enough, contrary to what I stated in the late-April update I've only just finished a quasi-first draft, which I'll soon start working upon – draft, after draft, after draft, after draft.
The 30,000+ words isn’t the only thing causing the delay though, as I’ve also (unexpectedly) had to read a dozen or so books, read hundreds of articles, read several academic papers, compile a massive amount of notes out of it all, and then finally categorize all those notes for the writing of all the subsequent drafts/expansions. Not only is all that a massive slog (writing isn’t my forte I’ll say again), but it also requires me to try and ward off some serious burnout. But such is life I suppose.
Anyhow, as far as I can tell I doubt the post will even be ready for late-June (I'll put up another update regardless), maybe not even by late-July, but at the latest it better be done by mid- to late-August as there’s places I want to be in September.
In the meantime, perhaps I should at least start giving some teasers with these updates, so here's two of the 50+ images that are set to appear in the “who knows when it’s going to be posted” post.
