Sad News…

20181223_233504I have been putting this off because I didn’t want to admit to myself that I need to officially take a break from this project. I am falling in love with the Iliad a little bit more every day I spend with it, but I simply don’t have the time I need to be able to work on it right now.

I recently got promoted to a full time position at “New Burgundy” in a new location, which means new people, new responsibilities, and a longer commute. Also, because of my delightful combination of arthritis, fibromyalgia, anxiety, and depression, it has been a rough transition. I am doing better every week, but I am not at a place where I can spend time on my Iliad project. I miss it and will be coming back to it, but not until I am able to get to a healthier place.

I thank you all for reading and your support and promise I will be updating this in the future (my hope is in March). I will keep you updated as time goes on.

Wishing you all the best,

Naomi Ruth

New Project: The Iliad According to NaomiRuth

I have no idea how long such a thing will take, or even if I will be successful in attempting such a thing, but I am going to try! I have done character sketches for The Argives, so I merely have all of the Trojans, all of the Immortals, plus a couple of random other characters, to do. Which. You know. Should be easy. 0_0

ANYWAY. While you are waiting for me to post up the Argive characters feel free to go out and buy a copy of The Iliad [this post tells you about the copy I am using] or you can follow this link and read an online version for free.
