Pierwalker Log: November 9, 2019

Writing start: 10:03 A.M.
Finish: 2:35 P.M.
Total new words (est.): 1100
Edited (est.): 7800


1. Failure: Fourth secondary edit of chapters 1, 2, and 3
Notes: Still some verb-tense issues. But cleaner than last go-round.

2. Book Three Melody: 1100 new words
Notes: This chapter is completed. She comes in at 14.9K words, which will almost certainly eclipse 15K as the primary edits are done, the first of which will take up almost my entire day next Saturday. I've scheduled them that way--each Saturday for the next six Saturdays. They'll conclude Winter Solstice. I'll give myself the rest of the year off with respect to the project before commencing early 2020.

It's a great chapter. I'll even go as far as saying it's groundbreaking. It's courageous and optimistic, hopeful and joyous, innocent and yet not naive, empowering and impactful. If you're going to face Ultimate Evil, after all, you need to be armed with precisely those weapons.

I really pushed myself, and so I will skip the rest of the tasks I had lined up and take the rest of this day to try to un-fry my brain. I don't do that too often--take tasks off. But this is an achievement, I think, and so needs to be recognized and honored as such.
