@fmerommel So I have an idea to tie together a couple of story ideas here, and I'm not sure if that would be a bit twee or even pretentious. I already linked "Step-Something" to the world of "Bonds of Friendship." But I guess I'm still a little disappointed that I left Heather in limbo. Things were definitely looking up for her, but she's an interesting girl, and I feel like I could write more about her.
Except that the idea I have would link into yet another story, which could seem very artificial. Can I have multiple independent threads of stories set in the same time and place without it seeming trite?
I'm also wondering about a sequel to "The End of Summer" from way back in 2004. It seems like I'm stealing all the worst ideas from Hollywood.
Maybe I'll write a time-travel story next.
