Pierwalker Log: October 28, 2019

Writing start: 10:41 A.M.
Finish: 3:43 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 900
Edited (est.): 13000


1. Failure: Third secondary edit of chapter 25
The ending, which is coming in the next chapter and following epilogue, really sneaks up on you, I've noticed.

2. Book Three Melody: 500 new words
Notes: This is a story that I very much hope doesn't lose that sense of atmospheric, heavenly surreality.

3. Angel: Book Three: Fourth primary edit of chapter five

4. Random Chance Book Two: Off till 11/4

5. Port Story: Off

6. Hidden Bookmarks: 400 new words
Notes: If you're writing correctly (I believe), you enter a kind of meditative state, one that keeps you from leaping too far too fast, or dragging your feet. I'm four chapters in on this project and taking it slowly. I loathe writing conventions that say I need to cut right to the chase in every scene, every chapter. Screw that.

7. LOTR: Read-through of chapter nine
Notes: I think the end of the chapter is in sight.

8. Firefly: Edited chapter three

Special Projects: Cutting Off Contact: Off till 10/30
