Two in a row! Anyway, last week was a writing week and another chapter or so of Living Theurgy is done. The MS is at just over 13,000 words and I’ve set out a very, very rough outline of a table of contents. At the moment we’re looking at least 13-15 chapters, and probably around 50,000 words. That, of course is subject to change as necessary. There will also be a number of illustrations in the book, pictures of different Demiurges, gods, spirits, etc. I’m currently planning to paint them in the Orthodox icon inspired style I’m using for the Neoplatonic Tarot (and there will be a chapter on Neoplatonic aesthetics which will, amongst other things, discuss the influence of Neoplatonism on Orthodox Christian iconography).
That’s most of what took up the week. I did send out about 30 e-mails to various university department heads, advertising the Journal of the Western Mystery Tradition Conference, and now only time will tell how well this works out or if the conference will have to be canceled.
And . . . that’s about it. Writing non-fiction isn’t quite as sexy as writing contemporary fantasy, so, alas, I don’t have any fun-filled, action packed quotations for you. This current week doesn’t look good, either.
