Pierwalker Log: October 16, 2019

Writing start: 9:35 A.M.
Finish: 4:16 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 1300
Edited (est.): 8400

1. Failure: Third secondary edit of chapters 13 and 14

2. Book Three Melody: 500 new words
Notes: The chapter is sitting now at 10.2K words. Another 2K, maybe? 3K? Some connection issues; some tone issues as well. But overall, it isn't bad, as rough as this huge chapter is.

3. Angel: Book Three: Off

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

5. Port Story: 500 new words
Notes: A good day with this project.

6. Hidden Bookmarks: Off

7. LOTR: 300 new words
Notes: Writing terror is difficult. It seems a very delicate balance between using sparse language, refraining from telling to much--or showing too much--and keeping a hyperfocus without losing the broader thread of the story. I'm in total admiration of authors who can do it--Stephen King, for instance. A true master.

8. Firefly: Off till 10/19

Special Projects: Cutting Off Contact: Off till 10/21
