Thanks everyone! Words do not express how thrilled I am to be done. I loved the challenge but I am glad it is done. To celebrate Gina, Amy, and I went bowling and then I bought a whole pie...yum!

Sarah, right now the story is a very rough shape. I'm going to let it sit a month or two before trying to edit it (I feel I am too close to the story to be fair) but after that I am willing to let people who are interested read it. Would you want to read it?
