"urban" sort of sounds like "holden"

aside from deciding to write a chapter every two days from now on (yeah, i know) i've been working feverishly on making the beginning of my story unlike the catcher in the rye.

first of all, i dislike the catcher in the rye, so if i see any similarity, it is disparaging. secondly, any stories using elements such as, say, a young man, an introvert, or a city are immediately compared to holden's pointless adventure.

right now my feelings are that only the start of the second chapter will be reminiscent of salinger, so i'm okay.
