Hi everyone. I'm sorry I haven't been here in a long time. I've been through a bunch of shit, and then, I've been rewriting my book too. I'm half way there and will let everyone know when I'm near finished, and my plans, too. I'm working with a new editor now and have run into something that doesn't make much sense. She brought it to my attention that readers will want to know. I was hoping someone could help me. In the early 90s, my fiance signed a SO contract at Flag. He hid this bit of information from me when we first got together. Apparently, the recruitment office was giving him a few months to tie up some loose ends before putting the contract into activation. One of those loose ends included him going back home to Italy, I think, to get more money to pay the rest of OT3 that he'd already partially paid for. (He came from a wealthy family.) Once everything came out in the open, and I found out he'd signed the contract, he tried to get me to join as well. My answer was a big, "No!" Then, magically, he was off the hook. He did not have to activate his contract -- ever. Why/how could this be? I always thought it was because he was worth more money to them as a public than in the SO. But how might there be any other reason? Thanks in advance. This would be a great help to me for the chapter I'm working on.
