Hello Tash. Rather than leave this on a back burner until after you have completed your romance novel, use it as a stop gap and return to it whenever you are facing Writers Block with your other work. It always helps to be writing more than one thing at a time.

Regarding punctuation and spelling, I really believe that it is a case of mind racing far ahead of fingers.

Dave Beech has given you the same advice as I previously have.

Potentially, you have the bones for a good story here. Don't allow yourself to become typecast to only one genre. Rather explore all avenues. 

While you are seeking comments on your story ideas, it is difficult for us to get past the presentation of them. Your imagination resides in fertile ground. Your ideas are good. Your packaging of those ideas need some attention. Spelling and punctuation are the keys to that presentation. It does not matter that this is not a final draft. It does not matter that you yourself do not consider it to be a major work. Write everything as though it were, and allow the public to decide what is or is not a major work. You may be surprised by which works do better than others.

I recently submitted a piece called — 'Listen Alisa (Secrets)' —  which at Narrator International, achieved the status of Most Popular Of all Time, however, here on Scriggler it has rated as the least so far of my works. In the end analysis it is not possible to know what the public will or will prefer, so, present every work to the very best of your ability.

Believe it or not, I am a fan of your work, and watch your progress with great interest.
