Thank goodness you set this up--I needed the peer pressure to push me back into these revisions. Otherwise it would have been procrastipalooza this month for me. ;-)

Go team, go!

Add my name
Do I need to create an account here?

Anyway, I'm Shoebrera and my goal is to have Chapter 1 finished and refined in February.

I'm looking forward to where/how to post the thousand words I have ready but don't know where/how, etc. Advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.
