I feel the sudden urge to nest. Like, go hibernate in a library with a bunch of books and all my writing notes and just think for a day or two. Aka, I must be in procrastination mode. Still, it's kind of nice. I'm trying to sit and do an overhaul on my Namesake notes. I have a master Namesake file in Scrivener, but I also have assorted bits and bobs of plot, world building, characters, and the like in emails, chat logs and various notebooks. Every so often, I go, "Oh, I need to compile more of this stuff together," do it for a bit, then go back to the notebook.

Namesake's world has gotten so big and complex that I am not quite sure how Isa keeps it straight in her head. Or in my head, actually. So, I'm trying to do a proper series bible by tying all our notes together. It's good because during the Oz arc, we pretty much knew the story cold. Now we're going into the uncharted territory and expanding our world, and it's nice to see the layers be added to the framework of the original story. The series bible is being done in Scrivener, with a supplemental timeline in Aeon Timeline. And then, I'll go back to scribbling stuff in notebooks. And naming our arcs after Mario worlds. Actually, I turned Namesake into a Zelda game last night.

Isa: hahaha
Me: Instead of pieces of the Triforce, she goes around collecting pieces of stories.
Me: Anlise: Master using it, and you can have this! *hands over Hercilia*
Me: Emma: God damn it.
Me: Hercilia: Oz damn it!
Isa: It's dangerous to go alone, take this *hands warrick*
Me: Bwhahaha
Me: Ozma: It's a secret to everybody

I have tomorrow off work. I think in addition to tying up the last loose ends on Namesake vol. 2, I'm going to also play the Legend of Zelda. Because I now have the theme from Zelda II: The Adventures of Link running through my head.

I actually have two heads. That's my secret. I keep the other in a cupboard.

I've been really terrible with keeping up with all the news on Namesake. x-x I hope my name is still on the list somewhere or if I missed any steps, please do let me know.

Did you check the PDF in the latest update? I think your name is on there.

OK, I think I have a note from you somewhere. You want it as Amelia Seyroon, right?

Good luck organizing everything!

Also, thank you for that link to Aeon Timeline. One of my novels that I want to rewrite has two different calender systems and, while I can't afford it now, I'm seriously tempted to download the trial version when I get around to editing.

I used the trial version last fall and really liked it. I'm hoping he puts it on sale again soon, I haven't seen it on sale since NaNoWriMo last year.
