S5 – White Roses and White Ghosts
This darling classmate of mine, Elissa, has Ghost written Chapter 5 of For the Love of Elaine…AND I ADORE IT <3. Such an honor, Elissa!
This week’s challenge was to ghostwrite a chapter for a fellow classmate’s novella! I decided not to do something from my own novella’s genre, so that cut out all the fantasy novels (sniff). Instead, I chose For the Love of Elaine by Abby (check her out on Harvest of Stars!), a fictional murder mystery set in the 1930s. Besides the fact that we currently have the same blog theme, I wanted to see if I could imitate her luxuriant, dramatic writing style, which I find inspiring. I hope my attempt does her justice.
Intro: young, kind Elaine Whitney, an orphan cared for by the butler on Chadwick Estate, has just been murdered. In this chapter, we jump into the head of the young gardener, Ian Donald, the evening after the murder. I expanded Ian’s backstory and wrote this with the assumption that he is innocent.

NP2–Chapter 2: Fresh Grave
OK, I was hoping to get a bit further in the story for this chapter, but, I didn't have time. Nevertheless, I reached a pretty good ending point. Also, note: I am working on revising my previous chapter, so a couple things might not seem to fit in with the story line. Once I've edited … Continue reading NP2–Chapter 2: Fresh Grave
