Thank you, Carolyn! It would be such a blessing if you continued. :clap: I’ve assigned you to five more chapters.

Thank you, Daria :) I'll get busy anew. Best to keep the momentum going.
Thank you also for notifying Jennlea. Whenever that file turns up, I'll upload Ch 19. Did she reply to your message?

have you checked this with Elijah to make sure he hasn't started on any of those yet ? I would really hate to have two people work on the same set and therefore do work double. :?

Elijah: best to note down in the MW which sections you have started prepping already, so there won't be a conflict in work distribution.

I have prepped the first 15 chapters and downloaded all the files so I could work offline on these as well, before my audacity was giving me troubles + updated etc. I've gone ahead and marked down which ones I have a draft in progress for. I understand my editing speed hasn't been quick yet, but I'd still like to keep the chapters I requested. If crystal would like 15 to 18 that's alright. My hand has touched the first 15, however, as I've placed the first couple lines down in them so I have a saved file for when I come to edit.

Thanks
Elijah

Hi y’all,

I am so sorry that all this confusion happened. The blame is on me. Elijah mentioned that he was editing Chapter 2, but I had no idea that he was working on many others at the same time. :oops: Carolyn and Elijah, thank both for editing this book. We appreciate you! From now on, I’ll make sure to check with everyone and get a hands up before continuing.

Just to clarify:
Elijah will edit Chapters 2-12
Carolyn will edit Chapters 13-17 and 19

Sounds good?

It's alright. I thought that earlier we spoke about Carolyn having 18-24. I have placed together some pieces into 13-15 as well because I had assumed I'd be editing from the Dramatis Personae to Chapter 18 where Carolyn had the rest. I'm not trying to be stubborn though, but from the last time we spoke on it, I spent some time preparing for myself so my editing will go quicker.

I'd like to continue with 13-24, which is an even half.
