1. Failure: Stage 2 edit of chapter 26 and the epilogue; Stage 3 edit of chapter 22
Notes: Stage 3 edits should conclude Tuesday.

I'm going to take tomorrow (Saturday) off. Just blogging. Sunday and Monday are off normally; aside from reading the epilogue on Tuesday, I won't be working that day either, as well as Wednesday. I've been burning the candle at both ends and the middle and can feel a serious stretch of burnout coming on. From hard experience, I know it's stupid to ignore it.

Thursday on I will be formatting this project for publication. It shouldn't take more than three full workdays, which means I should have this published by Saturday.

This project, as I have said before, has been the toughest I've ever written. Hell, I spent almost all of 2018 (I believe it was) editing just eleven chapters! A lot of blood, sweat, and tears has gone into it.

It's been over four years since a book in Melody's saga has been published. I'm more excited than I can tell you that this one is about to join the library!
