I love this story! Thank you so much for sharing. I’m currently working on my first novel and it’s taking me FOREVER. I’m discouraged easily at this point because the writing is still difficult. Thinking about it instead as a long-term project rather than a book might be a helpful way to look at it.
Also, your bus is going to be amazing when it’s done! Are you a fan of middle grade fiction? I just read The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise. It’s the story of a 12 year old girl and her daddy, Rodeo, who live in a converted school bus. I loved it and of course your bus reminded me of it!
