1. Failure: Off till 11/9

2. Book Three Melody: 400 new words
Notes: Probably a thousand or so words from the finish line. It'll come in around 14.5 - 15K words. Enormous. But it's a pivotal chapter, and a beautiful one, one I've thought about for, oh, something on the order of fifteen years. I'm deeply grateful I took all that time, because it gave me the freedom to think about it from every possible angle, to consider what was important to include and what should be left out, and so on. I've dreamed about this chapter. Many times. It's a big, big deal to me, and a big, big deal to the story arc.

3. Angel: Book Three: Off till 11/7

4. Random Chance Book Two: Off

5. Port Story: Off

6. Hidden Bookmarks: 400 new words
Notes: Writing is such a marvelous discipline in terms of promoting and testing patience. It's a great way to consider each step a character takes, to hold the tone and pace precisely, to struggle for the right words in a bit of dialogue. And by writing I mean: using a keyboard, typing. Not talking. Not filming. That process is precious to me.

7. LOTR: Third primary edit of chapter nine

8. Firefly: Edited chapter six
Notes: One of my very favorite chapters in this fan-fic.
