Ah, finally on Chapter 3 of the story, and because of that, I have been able t easily break the 5,000 AND 10,000 word requirement in less than two days.
Here we go.
Noelle starts off this chapter by being mad at her English teacher, who had just assigned a creative writing assignment on “The Great Gatsby”. She claims to have a history of substituting fan fiction in place of the assignment and failing miserably. As she says, “what was creative writing, if not making up stories?”
Plus, at her club meeting, one of the members brings in an obscure science fiction book series, which threatens to break up the club. For the first time in her life, Noelle is seriously considering giving up the Silver Stones in favor of the other book. Yet, the fact that another member of the club chose to go AWOL and befriend several people with questionable reputations seems to knock some sense back into her head.
That, and the fact that Celeste is enrolling in Noelle’s school as a senior.
Noelle suffers the dreaded backlash when she receives a ton of hate mail from several of her readers that declare that because she killed off a popular character, they weren’t going to read her story anymore. Noelle responds by blocking them from reading her stories altogether (a very “mature” thing to do, Noelle!). She then goes on to writing her story, but finds herself lacking excitement, since without the character, her story was going faster than she could keep up.
Plus, with the introduction to the other part of the storyline, mainly the Christian play that Noelle was persuaded to join, she knows that things are going to get a whole lot worse for her…
