The Three Plot Ideas for the Chick Lit assignment are in (see last week’s post here).
And the pages, they are a-smoking with girl drama! Check out these submissions from my beginning high school writers:
- Forever Single
Gretchen never thought that she would end up in Portland almost broke and working a crummy job. She is miserable. And her so-called friends are incredibly rude. And she’s single! Still torn up over her parents’ divorce, she sees no hope of her life going anywhere. Could a new makeover be the answer?
She kicks her old friends to the curb, applies for a new job, and creates a dating profile. Will she finally find the love of her life?
- Why I Hate Lipstick
I haven’t always hated the stuff, but I have forever hated those who use too much. The evil girls. You know the ones I am talking about. Those tall, thin, way-better-looking-than-you blondes. My last experience with them involved lipstick, my ex, and two thousand gallons of water. Not to mention tuna and waffles. That was just the beginning of the worst food fight in history.
- Chained by Love
I love Michael. I know he’s the one. Why, we’re perfect for each other after all. I just can’t resist his deep blue eyes, golden brown hair, and soft olive skin. It’s so romantic; we live in a secluded cabin deep in the woods. My sweetie doesn’t always like living there, though. However, I constantly remind him, “Hush, hush, my love. Remember, no one can hear you. It’s just you and me. So let’s stop with all this ‘Someone help me!’ nonsense you keep yelling about.”
Ah, it’s true love.
Not bad, I say. From top to bottom: girl, guy, guy. I’ll share a few more next week.
