I'm sorry. This will be the third novel I started on here. Unlike the others, this one will get finished relatively quick. I started a short story for a contest on the 11th of April and it flew by standard short story length and is taking on the shape of a novel. I will resume all other work only when this is done and have been averaging about 4000 words a day on this one. This is rough draft stuff here so bear with me.
