1. Failure: Second secondary edit of chapter 26 and the epilogue
Notes: Unofficial word count for the novel: 87,900. It's reading remarkably well at this early stage, considering the immense difficulty I had in writing it. There are tons of plot twists, connections, and strategizing going on, which requires thinking out all the logical possibilities and so on. Learning a little about tall ships takes time, too, something that, thankfully, I had already begun way back when I started Book One. I may publish a dramatis personæ at the beginning to help readers, because there are a lot of characters (as there would be aboard a large warship).
2. Book Three Melody: Off
3. Angel: Book Three: Off
4. Random Chance Book Two: Off
5. Port Story: 300 new words
Notes: The chapter is completed! I'm really happy with this chapter; it will lead nicely into the next, and will deepen the myriad mysteries the villagers are confronted with.
6. Hidden Bookmarks: Third primary edit of chapter three
7. Rumpel: Off
8. LOTR: 400 new words
Notes: More slow-going. There is a lot happening in this chapter, and I want to make sure I get it down correctly.
Special Projects: Off till 10/2
