You forgot the "never rush a good brew" rule =)
Try looking at the Cats Meow 3 mead section at
and look around, preferably for something called sweet or quick mead.

Personally I've never made a mead that fermented out in less than 3 months, 
but it's all a matter of planning and making beers in between =)
