Day 4

 

As of late, I’ve been continuing my route of reading through some ancient egyptian text to get a grasp on the religion for a story. As it is, the text is so differentiated through the translators and locations, that I’m not exactly sure of what I’m looking for. I hope that I can find it soon.

Aside from that, I’ve been writing on 750words.com and managed 608 words between two days. Not my finest, but I’m still working on it. I made a dent of one page per story, so that has to account for something. My body is tired and I’m struggling to keep up, but I’m determined to push my writing back to the forefront of things. It’s what I love, and I’ve got to keep doing it. At all costs.

Day 3

I wanted to write last night, and the night before but found myself insanely tired and drowsy.

As of the last two days, I’ve been reading through some of my Ancient Egyptian books, specifically the books on mythology. I started a story back in junior high school (at the height of my Ancient Egyptian obsession) about a girl of middle eastern-asian descent and I wanted some myth and lore of AE in it. Now that I’m committing myself to complete most of my unfinished works, I’m hitting these mythology books on the train, which is my best time for reading.

Currently reading: Legends of the Egyptian Gods by E.A. Wallis Budge
Ancient Egyptian Myths and Legends by Lewis Spence
Egyptian Mythology by Veronica Ions

I realize this maybe one of the more harder tasks I’ve decided to take on, as I’ve got to decide which AE mythology system (upper, middle or lower egypt) mythology I want to focus on =/

But, I will persevere.
