Lynnet and Cheryl -

Should this forum be under the "Short Works" directory instead of "New Projects Launch Pad"?

I can decide when to move it. It has to start on the LP, and we usually leave projects there a couple of days, but it is up to the MC.

To murder in cold blood all joy in life for him who has no money is a dreadful thing and that is what the moneyed man does.
