I intended to start this Tale earlier in the summer, so it would be overlap with the Fourth of July, the date on which it takes place. But the simple fact is that it wasn’t finished. It still isn’t finished, to be honest. Hell, page 3 isn’t even ready, and it’s going to run for quite a few more pages than that. I’m not even sure yet how many pages… that’s how not-yet-finished it is. It’ll last the rest of the summer.

I don’t like working on week-to-week deadlines. That’s why I worked on this series for a few years before I even started publishing it, to get a nice inventory “in the drawer”, so I wouldn’t have to stress about finishing pages every week. But here I am. :)
