The goal is to write 8400 words per week.  If I can do that, I should have no problem finishing this novel by mid-October.  Not only do I have to finish this novel–I have to make it GOOD.  The fact that my novel is not set in England/Ireland/Scotland makes it a harder sell.  To some publishers, it may be an impossible sell.  It is the story that is in my heart, however, so that is the one I am going to tell.  If a story is well-written, and is a good story, it may off-set the risk the publisher might feel they are taking on a setting that is different.  And again, some agents/editors are more receptive to different things than others.
