Total new words (est.): 400

1. Failure: Off

2. Book Three Melody: Second primary edit of chapter seventeen
Notes: She's reading very clean at an early stage, which is encouraging. It took me nearly four hours to get through the entire chapter; and still, at the end of it, I'm feeling a bit weepy. Robert Frost once said: "No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader." I believe that. The further this story arc progresses, especially from here, chapter seventeen, through to the very end of the story (Book Six, I think), those tears are going to occur more and more frequently. Not all sad, certainly. Many happy and victorious ones too. Maybe more of those than the former.

3. Random Chance Book Two: Off

4. Port Story: Off

5. Hidden Bookmarks: 400 new words
