Because the editor suggested me a few things, chapter numbering may be confusing for a while until

I finish changing.  The reference chapter and other few chapter will change the location.

On Chapter 39, Heian Period History, a few things were added.

Great writeup, Yuri! It clarifies several points that I had wondered about.

 

Are you related to Kenny Endo, by any chance? He's my Taiko sensei.

The chapter number in the table of contents and actual chapter number is getting even more confusing.

Thank you very much for correcting my spelling. 

I really appreciate it.

I need it.  Please let me know more. 

For this reason, I hired an editor to correct my entire writing.

We are not chapter 57 yet.  I have so many changes and chapter number was changed .

Very confusing work.

 

Thank you

It was a good laugh.

Hi Yurie,
Please keep up the fantastic work!
I deleted the comments about the spelling. You do amazingly well, considering English is not your first language. Assisting with corrections I am sure is helpful, but there are better ways for our members to do that, and perhaps it does not come across as polite as it is intended.
Thank you from all of us. I hope oneday this whole project will be published.

Hi Brian,

Please don't worry about it.

I need all the feed back and the corrections.

Especially the one like we are discussing about now. 

Unless somebody mention it, the misspelling  "worriers" would stay for sometime.

That is more embarrassing.

 I am working with my editor diligently.  

I am hoping I can publish the book maybe the early part of next year.

Thank you.

 

Yurie
