Pierwalker Log: May 7, 2018

Writing start: 10:26 A.M.
Finish: 2:30 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 1000
Edited (est.): 17,300

1. Failure: Special read-through (Ch.9)
Notes: A second align edit on chapter nine. There will probably be a third this week, or early next. Rewriting accounts for 700 of the 1000 words I wrote today.

2. Book Three Melody: Read-through

3. Watson: Off

4. Love Story: 300 new words
Notes: I can see the end of the tunnel to this chapter.

5. Ant story: Read-through

6. Dread Pirate Roberts (2): Read-through

7. The Candle: Book edit ch.3
Notes: More polishing. Not nearly as awkward or clunky as chapter two.

8. T-Bag: Off till Thursday

Extra notes: Reddit is a weird, bustling place. My Cobra Kai review from yesterday has sent this blog to a new single-day pageview record. At this writing it's sitting at 144. The old mark was 120, from March. I've got 22 upvotes there, and a couple of nice comments.

It looks like this Thursday will be a day off judging by various errands, etc. that are crowding in on both Kye and I. We'll see. If so, I'll push T-Bag's new chapter beginning to Saturday.

Speaking of Cobra Kai, we watched the The Karate Kid last night. That's a superlatively written story, and is a direct inspiration for Book Three of Melody. For in those pages the Apprentice will be getting very serious about learning her craft. After watching Daniel LaRusso, I'm excited to write Melody's training journey.
