The Show Must Go On

Genre: Contemporary
Length: Novella (38,069 words)
Current Stage: Completed First Draft (July 2018)


Living out of a fifteen-passenger van for four months can really give you a new perspective on life. For example, Chey has already learned three things:

1) Kevin snores
2) Riley’s hair looks surprisingly good after 3 days without showering (the smell, not so much)
3) She would probably kill Spencer given the chance.

If it hadn’t been for this tour that Spencer booked, maybe they could’ve been friends. But then she decided it would be a good idea for them to perform with Chey’s ex-boyfriend, and now Chey can’t help but think she’s the only one who sees how much of a problem Spencer is.

Spencer Rose has finally found her true calling with the band. Riley’s been more than happy to let her take over management roles, and she’s finally starting to feel at home with the group. Well… for the most part. Chey’s been resistant to every one of her suggestions, even when all she’s doing is trying to help. Not only that, but four months on the road is certainly going to put her mind to the test. Spencer’s pretty sure she can handle it all… or at least, she’s hoping.

This project is a companion to Project Summer. There are some shared characters, but the story stands on its own.

I completed my first draft during Camp NaNoWriMo 2018, exceeding my goal of 35,000 words.

As of 2020, I’m not sure what I’ll do with this project, but I’m continuing to work with these characters in other capacities, so we’ll see where that takes me!
