I’m now on chapter 9 of the story, and at this point, Noelle has freed herself from her fantasy world (which turned into a nightmare where she imagines herself in a padded room with only a computer for company) and vows to kick her addicting habit.
By starting a blog on Tumblr.com.
Noelle (anonymously) confesses on the Internet to being “addicted to a popular character from a popular fantasy book series” and she tells the world what it is like to be addicted to fanfiction, hoping that talking about her problems will bring forth a viable solution.
Yet, she learns the hard way that not everyone is going to like or approve of fanfiction when her English teacher finds out about her bad writing habits and she is made to do her assignment all over again.
Plus, the fanfiction writing website is hacked, leaving Noelle with next to nothing to do. She must also confront her parents over why they dragged her out of church, as that might have triggered the problems that she is facing.
I know that I will have to edit this monster in March, but when I have written over 40,000 words and still have less than 10,000 words left, it’s not a good idea to slow down right now.
