Okay, the thinking phase is over. I believe I’ve finally found the formula to make this a standalone story while still being an effective and satisfying conclusion to the series. I’m more than a little excited because I’ve hooked into a new voice for this installment that is really eager to be heard. I’ve had many stops and starts to this point because none of it felt fresh. Once I found The Actuals, a fog was lifted. Let’s hope it doesn’t return.
In keeping with what I’ve done in the past, I will put up a daily word count to keep me honest and accountable. I have some travel on the horizon, but I don’t plan on letting that stop me. I’ll keep you updated on story elements as much as I can without giving too much away. What I will tell you today is that my best imaginary friend in the weeks and months to come is a kid named Sunshine Carter.
Here we go!
