1. Failure: Second Secondary edit of chapters 9
Notes: This is a great chapter, and begins to give serious acceleration to the story as a whole. Prior to this chapter, the story is largely a "catch up" to the Failure's exploits to that point, as well as a rough outline of the massive challenge they face.
2. Book Three Melody: Read-through of chapter seventeen
Notes: There is a good chance that this will be a "super chapter," in excess of 10K words. It's a fulcrum chapter in many ways to the entire narrative, and it deserves a great deal of attention and continuity. I think it would be a mistake to break it up. Those readers who truly are fans of the story would, I'm sure, prefer that I don't. They have longer attention spans than the average Joe, who can barely manage three seconds.
