The Season Six Job In Six Minutes reviews
Don't ask. Just... don't ask. Consider this as an intermezzo between PVA chapters for real TSSJ. This, whatever it it, started as an idea for a few fellow writers, some sort of explanation of writing process with a bunch of tricks, and it went awkward after the first sentence. Never came back. I think it's better to put it here, separately, than to whine in chapter 62.
