I went and did it. When I took a break to write other things (Little Tony and Getting it Wrong) I needed to get away from David and friends. What I didn't realize was it would give me a chance to step back and come up with a ton of material.
I've written 24 chapters (about 300,000 words) and only gotten through the first of November in my time line. At this rate the book will be over a 100 chapters long. I've been told by more than a few readers that they don't want to wait that long, so I made the decision to split the book into two like I did Freshman year.
The goal is to have it ready to start posting by early fall.
Thanks for the patience.
