Pierwalker Log: August 15, 2019

Writing start: 9:11 A.M.
Finish: 2:02 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 900
Edited (est.): 10500

1. Failure: First secondary edit of chapter sixteen

2. Book Three Melody: Read-through of chapter seventeen

3. Angel: Book Three: Off

4. Random Chance Book Two: Read-through of chapter four

5. Port Story: 400 new words
Notes: Trying to find the balance between descriptive narrative and the plot. Very difficult right now.

6. Hidden Bookmarks: 500 new words
Notes: Still introducing the new character, who will be of some service to Kincaid as she goes through her trials and discovers what she needs to do.

7. T-Bag: Third primary edit of chapter five
Notes: Getting some serious connective tissue for later chapters in these edits. I think T-Bag is going to have a helluva story.

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.
