Pierwalker Log: October 10, 2019

Writing start: 9:50 A.M.
Finish: 3:50 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 1300
Edited (est.): 8300

1. Failure: Third secondary edit of chapters 4, 5, and 6
Notes: Verb-tense issues continue, though not as severe as the first three chapters. Finding more connective tissue, and getting a better feel for the actual day count aboard the vessel. This story unwinds slowly, which is how I want it. My goal is to tighten up the chapters enough so that readers can feel it accelerate, as opposed to not being aware that it has.

2. Book Three Melody: 100 new words
Notes: Very slow-going. Connection issues. I'm nearing the 9K mark and I want to make this chapter as correct from the off as I can.

3. Angel: Book Three: 700 new words
Notes: What if God really wants you to kick some ass and take some names?

4. Random Chance Book Two: 500 new words
Notes: I can see the light at the end of the tunnel to this chapter. Maybe 3.5K words.

5. Port Story: Off till 10/15

6. Hidden Bookmarks: Off

7. Rumpel: Fifth primary edit of chapter five
Notes: I'll post it Saturday!

8. LOTR: Off

Special Projects: Off
