Be like the other books? Not on your life, er, writing ability. Your tale is astounding, magnificient, wonderousm, etc. I am a reader, and when I enjoy reading something, whether actual book or online, I read until my eyes will no longer stay open. While listening to music of course.
I will be starting your second story later today(it's 4am)since we're having another snow storm and it's my day off and the farthest I have to go is downstairs to do laundry.
Don't know how far you've written on your second story. I'm hoping it's finished alwo or I'll be trying to hex my computer. I just found this site a few weeks ago.
