Pierwalker Log: May 5, 2018

Writing start: 11:17 A.M.
Finish: 2:34 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 400
Edited (est.): 6400 + (approx.) 2000


1. Failure: Special read-through (Ch.12)
Notes: Ran into a major plot snag. It looks like I'll be going back to chapter nine on Monday and working my way forward again. Very frustrating.

2. Book Three Melody: Off

3. Watson: Read-through

4. Love Story: 400 new words
Notes: The constipation is easing up a little.

5. Ant story: Off

6. Dread Pirate Roberts (2): Off

7. The Candle: Book edit ch.2
Notes: Lots of polishing today. It's always difficult not feeling embarrassment when I think of how many people have potentially read that clunky chapter before I got to it today.

8. T-Bag: Off till Thursday

Extra notes: New tweaking to my daily project list, all designed to alleviate burnout. I can write in four projects in a single day if I don't have anything else to do; or in three projects if I've got five total (the other two would be read-editing only); or two projects against six total; or one project against seven total. If I've got eight projects, which doesn't happen often at all, they will all be confined to read-editing only.

I think those new limits will help, and will also prioritize lower-on-the-list projects. At least that's what I hope.
