Good gravy, that's a lot of pulp!!!

I have two stories outlined and have a bunch of paragraphs here and there. My problem has been since before the Issue#2 deadline, is keeping the proper tone, context, and flavor of the era, without overlapping into something recent.

I will buckle down within the next four days.
