One last shot

So in order to turn in something that at least resembles a story, here’s what I’m doing. I’m stripping everything down to the barest minimum. Anything that isn’t working or is causing problems is getting tossed. The fanciful silliness is gone, the attempts at humorous names are gone, the scenes I tried to write because I thought they’d be entertaining rather than because they were part of the story are gone. The setting was too wrapped up in everything to be changed, so that stuck around. But as much as possible has been removed and I’ll hopefully publish something passable on Thursday.  What’s left is…I’ll be honest.  I don’t know what the higgidy hell is left.  But it’ll be posting on Thursday.  Then we can all move past this, please.
