I can't believe a week has passed. Stayed pretty busy studying management this week in preparation for a final next week. Creeping along with what I hope is a final edit for Firetok. The whole lead in is in question again in my mind. I am a little reluctant to start the whole story with a lead in including two characters that are not essential to the rest of the story. I go back and forth on it, maybe a coin toss is in order. I have to go with my gut, but a solid outside opinion would be most helpful. It has indeed been a journey and I feel such a connection to the characters, sometimes it is hard to believe they are imaginary. I guess because the whole story really happened, and I just wrote it down. I don't feel the characters are fictional at all.
