1. Failure: Stage 2 edit of chapter 23; Stage 3 edit of chapters 17, 18, and 19
2. Book Three Melody: Fifth primary edit of chapter eighteen
Notes: This chapter is 9.2K words. The chapters edited above make up another 16K words. My brain is fried, with a crispy, crunchy exterior. I've got one more primary to do with this project, which I'll get through tomorrow; and then I'll take a couple of weeks off. In the meantime, I'm close to finishing Failure above. That's the top priority right now.
I'm very blessed in that I get to devote my time and my life to my writing. I get that. I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth. Far from it. I realize how fortunate I am, zero or close to zero readership notwithstanding.
But what else would I do with my life? Many of my same-aged peers have taken early retirement, having slogged for three decades plus in careers and jobs they hated, but did because ... well, the reasons are numerous, and numerously depressing. I won't go into that.
I'm just getting started--even though I've been at this since 2004. I've got tons more to write. Here's to hoping I'm blessed with the chance, fried crispy-crunchy brain and all.
