Lj for updates.

I have decided to start up an lj to make it easier to keep everyone updated on my progress. I have been receiving dozens of emails every day, and although I definitely appreciate people taking time to write, it is starting to be time consuming to answer questions like "how soon before X is finished?" This is, hopefully, the solution to that problem.

At the moment, I am working on Dumbledore (book 3 and book 4 simultaneously). I will hopefully have him finished soon. He's one of those characters I don't enjoy doing, because I don't particularly like him, plus he's on practically every page...

I can't wait to finish the "big" characters and get to the lesser ones, just because of how easy they will be in comparison. It is very hard to do characters like Arthur and Molly Weasley, for example, because of all the references under which they may be found. I have to search for the keywords: arthur, molly, father, mother, mum, dad, mrs weasley, mr weasley, and parents, to get all the references, and I have to pay close attention. A different character, for example Dobby, is really easy because I just search for "Dobby" and possibly "house-elf" and that's it. Voldemort is pure torture to do. The keywords are not just you-know-who, he-who-must-not-be-named, voldemort, riddle, etc., but also all those places where someone begins to say his name and is then cut off. It's very difficult to search for those. Same with Harry's parents.

But, overall, it's actually an enjoyable project...

Though I suppose it's redundant to say so, since I would not be doing it if I did not get some enjoyment out of it, would I?
