New stock on Etsy + actually writing books omg

Just a quick update for you to let you know I’ve put some new stock up on Etsy today. It’s a few altar tiles, and a pair of shrine kits. Check them out in the shop, or over at the blog.

Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see go up there, and I’ll see what I can do.

Also, I am not just pondering writing books anymore, I am actually going to do it. I’ve been pondering writing books, particularly a Sobek devotional, for years now, but I made a promise to myself late last year that book-writing is what I’m going to focus on this year, and as of now, that seems a lot more possible due to, well. Things are in the works. I’ll post more about this when things are more certain, and I’m closer to having finished manuscripts.

So the books I’m going to be working on are Pasithea’s City, and the accompanying book of Masrai’s myths, hymns, and rituals. (She wants rituals now, so. That’s a thing.) I’m in the process of typing up Masrai’s myths now, and getting them out of the journal and onto the computer. I did 4.6k last night, and I’m taking the opportunity to expand and edit the myths as I go, so I can shape them into something more substantial than what they are now, as they won’t be confined to the page limit of a paper journal.

I’m also going to be working on a Sobek book, this one focusing perhaps more on the whole Sobek of Shedet thing, and the Sobek/Heru thing, along with rituals and hymns and other stuff I’ve gathered over the years. I’m still sketching out the structure for that, but that’s the other major project. More updates on that when it’s more than a bunch of notes and scattered files on my computer.

Other than that, I’m working, dreading the oncoming heat wave, and generally getting on with life.

    I’m so happy about your books! If you need the list of Sobek feast days to include in the Sobek devotional, please feel free to include them.

      I’m happy about it, too. I’ve wanted books to happen for a long time, but it seems things are finally lining up to make that possible. Thanks for offering the list, I’m sure they’ll turn up somewhere in the book. It’d be nice to have an ‘as complete as possible’ list of feasts for people to draw on. That’ll be nice.

  2. Is there a link to your Etsy store ? 🙂

      It is linked above, but you can find it at shedetyscriptorium.etsy.com. One of the things I need to do is make the link more prominent than it currently is, but that’s where you can find it.
