Chapter 3 – When I Dream, I Dream of Hell

by Christopher Gronlund on October 16, 2010

The morning the O’Brien’s get ready to leave for their road trip to the Grand Canyon, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. The dysfunctional family pulls out of the driveway in angry silence shortly after their station wagon, The Inferno, gives its first hint that something about the car isn’t quite right.

I just listened to chapter 3. Thanks for the shoutout! I’m looking forward to the trip getting underway.

Lisa,

You’re welcome for the shoutout–it was nice seeing you mention Hell Comes With Wood Paneled Doors on your blog.

I thought about rewriting some of the story, to get the O’Briens out on the road sooner, but I really wanted to let the story stand as it was written 8 or 9 years ago.

It’s been tough to resist the temptation to edit and make bigger changes, but it’s more fun just getting the story out there instead of rewriting it and spending time that now needs to go to what I’m writing these days.
