It has been 2 weeks since the muse of Ozma struck and I have been busy writing the third and final episode of the Royal Magician of Oz Trilogy, which is titled: Family of Oz.
The writing goes at a furious pace and I am averaging a chapter a night and stand now at 23,004 words and counting.
During this time, I tend to go to ground and forgo all social interaction and activities related to family and friends.
Fortunately, my family and friends know this and understand that I must complete the Royal Command given to me by her Majesty, Princess Ozma, Royal Sovereign and Ruler of Oz.
My goal is to see Family of Oz released sometime early next year. I hope to do so at Magi-fest, the annual gathering of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
This will be the 80th year of Magi-Fest, of which I attended many of them back in the 70's and early 80's.
Add to this, the many and complicated projects I have on my plate and one can understand why I sometimes look and feel overwhelmed.
Nonetheless, I "endeavor to persevere."
Trivia question: Can anyone identify where the above quote, "endeavor to persevere" originated?
James C. Wallace II
Royal Liaison to Princess Ozma
