Pierwalker Log: May 23, 2018

Writing start: 9:40 A.M.
Finish: 2:34 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 600
Edited (est.): 18,200

1. Failure: Special read-through (ch.17)
Notes: Getting back to the leading edge of the story. I believe now that I can continue once I get there.

2. Book Three Melody: Primary edit number three of chapter eleven.
Notes: Training to become great is just as important as being great. So why do so many fantasy authors skip that entire process?

3. Watson: Off till June 5

4. Love Story: Primary edit number five of chapter two.
Notes: I'll get this chapter to Kye tomorrow, and then I'm going to take a big break from the project--three weeks or more. This was a tough, tough chapter to write.

5. Ant story: Off till May 31

6. Dread Pirate Roberts (2): 300 new words
Notes: It's a good chapter with an unknown ending. I think however that I've now got an inkling where that ending might occur.

7. T-Bag: 300 new words
Notes: Some fun coming. I'm looking forward to writing it!

8. Fractalverse: Volume 5: I'll start this new project May 28.

Extra notes: We watched the first two episodes of The Expanse last night. Confusing, but good. I'm excited to see where the story goes. It reminds me at this early stage of Random Chance, believe it or not. Just a bit heavier.

Pizza tonight. Can't wait.

I've been listening to the Lord of the Rings soundtrack while I write today. That may be the greatest soundtrack in film history. Just amazing.

Stories are everything. Good stories take my breath away. I find it fascinating that the human condition remains fascinating, that the archetypes and story types never get old.
