I took on an assignment for a scroll for Crown Tourney, which I finished in time to get it off to Their Majesties. Except I forgot it at home on Wednesday so had to mail it on Thursday, which meant it didn't get to them in time to bring to the event. Augh! But this is a prepared Royal Couple, so I had already sent the text as I wrote it out, and on Friday I sent a cell phone picture to them so they will be able to read the scroll text in court and tell the recipient that their scroll will be in the mail.

If my count is right, that will be project #57, which considering I started doing this in the fall of 2002 means I've done an average of 5 scrolls per year, which I think is pretty decent. There are other scribes in the Kingdom who do many many more, though, and with our new policy of also publishing the name of the scribes in court reports in our newsletter they will get some well-deserved attention.

And there is still a massive backlog of things I haven't updated my webpage with.

It's only taken nearly 10 years for this change to happen ( every time I asked when I was last signet I was told - nope not possible too much work for the heralds) Matthewe however had a wonderfully sympathetic ear and pushed this forward hopefully it will help with the scribe recognition thing.

Where else do we get a piece of original art along with an award? Our scribes are wonderful for sharing so freely of their talents, and deserve every recognition for how they contribute our Society and the pageantry that makes it so unique!

When I was signet, I made a point of publishing the list of contributing scrolls on a quarterly basis, both on the Dragon Scribes' blog, and in my letters for the Dragon's Tale.

I finished mine Tuesday night with the intent to mail it to Cecilia on Wednesday, which with the German postal system means it would've been delivered on Thursday, before they left Friday...until Cecilia and I realized that Thursday was a public holiday, and there would be no mail.

I ended up paying 40EUR to have it sent next-day-guaranteed to England. Eeek!
