On the road
"They have worries, they're counting the miles, they're thinking about where to sleep tonight, how much money for gas, the weather, how they'll get there - and all the time they'll get there anyway, you see"
JACK KEROUAC - 'On The Road' novel
My new concept
Using the campervan (an inanimate object) as the third person subjective to convey the thoughts, feelings, opinions etc of one or more persons/character (i.e. my parents). The 3rd person perspective is also called 'over the shoulder' - where the narrator only decribes events & information known by a character . I intend to personify the van, as if it also feels and experiences the same journey as my parents.
