Hey y’all, it’s the perennially late Trenchant Edges. Deep dives into weirdness. I’m Stephen, your MC here, and I have some questions for you.
As I write this, I’m about 2000 words into the second Blavatsky piece, about 10 minutes to read, and I’m like… barely started. And I’ve been writing for two hours.
So I want to ask y’all a couple of things.
Do you like the super long posts? This could easily be 5000-6000 words long.
Is posting on a schedule important to you? Because I’ve been beating myself up over not being able to stay on one and, well, what the fuck is the point of that if I’m the only one who cares.
Are there any other topics you’d like me to go into?
Thanks for joining me even when things are messy.
And I’d super appreciate any responses you’ve got. Either in the comments or by replying to this email.
I expect to finish this next piece tomorrow.
Super long posts are the best, and staying on schedule is nothing. Wellwritten is what's important.
"Time means nothing to me", at least here. I've got much of shit to do now, I read your email when I can. So schedule isn't really important for me.
About super-long posts: honestly, I dont know how long your posts are. Even the longest ones, I have yet to find one that after finishing I would think "wow, that was waay to long". So yeah, longer posts are welcome here.
I have one suggestion though: I think something is missing about this series of posts about theosophy, cultic milieu etc. Something that would connect this. I mean yes, its interesting, but you started with kinda "yes, there is religion in United States" and then went on describing some history. Idk, maybe I'm missing something, but I feel like something is lacking, like the topic isn't really clear, I'm not sure why are you writing about it (and I would love to know!)
Btw dont take this criticism too seriously, so far I'm really enjoying this series :)
Also I'm still waiting for your thoughts on Xenolinguistics, as I'm currently reading it myself.
