COMEBACK GIRL: A NEW Daily Serial

Comeback Girl Banner

Home is where the hurt is.

Hello.  I’m Jane Hunnicut, aged twenty-eight.
I grew up in Accident, Alabama but I’ve lived the past few years in London, England with the man I followed there from college.  To say I’ve distanced myself from my upbringing would be a bit of an understatement.  I love being a city girl and I’ve had my share of good fortune, but lately I’ve found myself in a bit of a slump.

I’m a novelist whose first book sold gangbusters, but the second book—notsomuch.
My relationship with my fiancé was flying high… until it wasn’t.
And to top it all off, my best friend disappeared... like before.
When I was at my lowest, the phone rang and in an instant, my life changed—
my family needed me.

After escaping the suffocating situation of my childhood, I am reluctant to return, especially since I’m already late on a big deadline.  In the small town where I grew up, I never quite fit in, but now after years away, I’m really going to stick out. And I’m not ready to face the ghosts of my past.

Meanwhile, my family and friends in Alabama think my life is perfect.

I’m in dire need of a comeback.  But my plan didn’t include coming back home.

Something tells me my life is going to get worse before it gets better.

 


 

 The COMEBACK GIRL daily serial will run July 1 - December 31, 2018.  The current day's episode will display for 24 hours (approximately 4am eastern to 4am eastern).  Set a reminder on your phone, fridge, or calendar so you don't miss a single day of COMEBACK GIRL!  And please share with all your reading friends!

October 19, Friday

I WAS MAKING progress in clearing my old bedroom.  When I reached my closet, I felt downright victorious.

I opened the closet door gingerly, worried varmints could be lurking inside—or worse, more hoard.

Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to see it was much as I’d left it when I’d gone to college, with left-behind shirts and jeans and sweaters from high school still hanging the way I still liked to organize things, by color.  I pulled out a few of the items, smiling as memories flooded back.  I withdrew a mustard yellow sweatshirt with the name of a local band, ACCIDENTAL BEAT printed on it.  One of the band members had been a friend of my father’s, so he had taken me and Tyler to one of their concerts, and we’d had a great time.  I recalled he’d even allowed us to sip from his beer, and we’d felt so grown up.  Outings with our father were rare and special.

I withdrew the sweatshirt and pulled it over my head, surprised to see it still fit.

And I was surprised to see there were some good memories lingering in this place that I’d forgotten in my determination to hate it.    ~
