Pierwalker Log: August 13, 2019

Writing start: 9:06 A.M.
Finish: 3:20 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 1000
Edited (est.): 8000

1. Failure: First secondary edit of chapters twelve and thirteen

2. Book Three Melody: 400 new words
Notes: This is not your typical epic or young-adult fantasy series!

3. Angel: Book Three: 400 new words
Notes: Very slow-going. I'm looking for the plot through the details. It's tempting to gloss them over; experience has taught me time and again that that's a mistake.

4. Random Chance Book Two: 200 new words
Notes: Slow, as usual. But I think this chapter may break open some big new veins of plot and maybe a few new surprises along the way.

5. Port Story: Off

6. Hidden Bookmarks: Off

7. T-Bag: First primary edit of chapter five

8. N.V. (Zelena fan fiction): Fourth secondary edits: Off till 8/19

Special Projects: Worked on "Looking Out Her Bedroom Window" (Melody BIII).

Extra notes: Extra Notes is going to become a separate feature when I start my next posting cycle. I've always got a rant-or-other bubbling down deep, but they take work to write, organize, and edit, all of which I do extemporaneously. Giving Extra Notes feature status will remove some of their impromptu-ness, give me time to think about what I want to say, and provide a little more balance to my writing workday.
