1. Failure: Third secondary edit of chapter 24
2. Book Three Melody: 600 new words
Notes: I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, which makes writing difficult, as I want to hurry up and get there! This will be the final chapter of the year for Book Three regardless. It's going to take a while to get through its primaries; by then it'll probably be December or several days into; and I will want a big breather. This chapter, I believe, is at the fulcrum of the entire book, which suggests that I will have another seventeen or so to write before it's completed. It doesn't always work out that way, but most times it's pretty close. We'll see.
3. Angel: Book Three: Third primary edit of chapter five
4. Random Chance Book Two: Sixth primary edit of chapter four
5. Port Story: Off
6. Hidden Bookmarks: 300 new words
Notes: Slow, but steady. Our hero is not too long from finding herself in the middle of some grand adventures.
7. LOTR: Off
8. Firefly: Edited chapter two
Notes: Even after some fifteen strong edits, I find little places here and there that need polishing. That kind of thing drives most authors crazy. For me, I find it wonderfully challenging and fun. There is no such thing as a perfectly edited story. Or a perfectly edited life. I'm good with that.
