I Need To Finish Something

Alright, I'm posting this thread so I'll get some public pressure to finish my story "The Girl in the Mirror" sometime in my lifetime. Right now the goal is to make it a short.

It's the story of a lonely bus driver who falls in love with the person he imagines a regular passenger is.

Right now it's sitting on about 1/4 of a handwritten page. I'll update this with progress,and eventually get things into the sandbox and we'll see what happens from there.

But mostly, I want the public pressure to finish it. I've been sitting on this idea for way too long.

About half a page now, which is pretty good considering I got called away to babysit my grandpa. Expect to see something in the sandbox pretty soon.
