Thanks to those of you who participated in answering the question for Chapter 3 of my interactive writing experiment, Write A Novel With Me. There were only two answer this week, so there’s a fifty-fifty shot your favorite will get chosen. As you consider these two great choices, make sure to take into account the story thus far and where you would like to see it go. Here’s a link to Chapter 1, Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 if you haven’t yet read them (or would like to reread them before making your decision).
Here was the question:
WHAT HAPPENED TO RICK AND LAUREN AT THE PARK?
Here are the answers up for your vote (in order of submission):
1) Lauren is their very young Aunt (the same age as Rick and it’s their mother’s sister) in which Rick became infatuated with. When they were on their late night picnic, a mysterious creature appeared out of nowhere and took Lauren hostage. Rick had to go with these creatures in order to keep Lauren, Jaden and his dad alive.
2) Rick wanted to tell Lauren something very important. But, just as he got ready to tell her, some men in black came out of the bush’s and took Rick away. Lauren, panicked and started chasing after them. She ran as fast as she could but couldn’t catch up to them. Lauren went back to get her stuff and found Rick lying there on the blanket. Lauren shook Rick and nothing happened. Lauren, looked around and saw no one. She continued to look around for any clues or answers as to what happened to Rick. Just then Rick came to screaming.
