With Halloween now three weeks away, I am beginning to feel more pressed to make sure the second part of Second Chance Rachel gets published on time on October 31st. With the short amount of time , however, I am finding this project to be a lot of fun to work on. The publication date for part two coincides with Rachel Denton’s journal entry being written on the same date.
I thought I’d share a little secret that may not quite be much of a secret.
If you read part one you will recall that Rachel wrote out a list of things she hopes to accomplish in college. A list of things she hopes to get a second chance to do that she was unable to do because of past experiences getting in the way.
Her list is the following:
-Get good grades
-Make friends and build on friendships she currently has
-Sing, learn drums, and improve on harmonica
-Be in a meaningful relationship with a great guy
-Act in a play
-Get a part-time job
-Improve on the languages she knows a little of- Tagalog, Spanish, Arabic
-Run a marathon
-Play basketball again
If you’ve been reading my blog for some time now it won’t be a surprise to you to know that this list and Rachel’s story are semi-autobiographical. I believe in second changes and getting a chance at doing things over again. With that belief, I created this story.
Although a work of fiction, I used elements of my own testimony and personal experiences to help me create what I hope will be a funny, heartwarming, and encouraging story that people can enjoy for free via Wattpad.
As always, thank you all for your support!
Tell your friends abut my work, but more importantly, if you are a Christian, tell everyone you know how much God loves them!
