Yes, yes I can write a novel! Pt. 16

Updated on November 18, 2012

The Just War, Ch. 16

Note: This is the sixteenth chapter in a novel that I'm writing as part of the NaNoWriMo challenge to write a 50,000 word novel between November 1-30. I'm now past the half-way mark! The rules are: Just write it! Don't edit, don't obsess, don't chart out notes. Don't worry about spelling, syntax, grammar or continuity. You can go back and fix those things later, but the most important thing to writing the novel is to get it written! It works out to 1,667 words per day. If you do more, great! If you do less, don't worry! Just keep plugging! And hopefully my first draft, with all spelling errors and continuity holes intact, will inspire you that you can do it too!

This is WRTV 6, the Indy Channel at eleven o’clock, with Todd Connor and Jenna Kooi. The news starts… now! Good evening, I’m Todd Connor and I’m Jenna Kooi. The top story at this hour is still the missing girl in Fishers. Here with the latest, reporting from Fishers, is our correspondent Ericka Flye. Ericka? Thank you Todd. At this time we still don’t know much more than we did earlier. As you remember the Lawless family, who live here in Fishers, suffered a devastating tragedy when their daughter was kidnapped from the Fishers branch of the Hamilton East Public Library this morning. By all accounts the Lawless family is pretty typical, husband and wife Victor and Janet Lawless live in his modest Fishers subdivision with their two children, son Barry and daughter Jennifer. Barry attends Hamilton Southeast High School and Jennifer attends Riverside Junior High School. Victor works a good job in downtown Indianapolis while Janet is a stay at home mom. They are normal, except that Jennifer is severely autistic. She attends a special class here at Riverside Junior High. We spoke with school principal Sarah Levitt, who had this to say. We don’t really want to say too much at this time, but we want everyone to know that we are pulling for Jen’s safe return as quickly as possible. No, I can’t imagine what they’re going through. Each of the kids at this school is special to us, and I just can’t even imagine. And we heard this from Fishers Mayor Scott Fadden. We just want everyone to know that the Fishers Police Department is doing everything in it’s power to ensure the safe and timely return of Jennifer Lawless. Yes, we are coordinating with Indianapolis Marion County Police Department, as well as Carmel, Noblesville, Zionsville and a few other agencies. Yes, we have notified the FBI but as you all know they don’t come into an investigation unless there is reason to believe that the victim has been transported across state lines, which there is no reason to believe at this time. You might remember from earlier today, at a press conference given from here at the Fishers Library. Our daughter Jennifer Lawless was taken from the Fishers Library this morning, just a few hours ago. Jennifer is severely autistic, is prone to self-injuring and is not toilet trained. She takes her nutrition almost exclusively by drinking Pediasure, often from a baby bottle. The only food she really enjoys are Steak ‘n’ Shake Chili Deluxe and Wendy’s French Fries. She is largely non-verbal, although she has learned to use the Touch Chat app on her iPad to communicate. She likes Backyardigans, VeggieTales and the first Gremlins movie. Jennifer is a special girl and I’m appealing to the kidnapper to please bring my daughter back. At this hour police are still looking for the suspect. For the Indy Channel, this is Ericka Flye. Ericka, is there any other information, perhaps about the vehicle the suspect might be driving? Yes Todd, the suspect was reported to be driving a white van, but that’s all the information we have at this time. Thank you Ericka. Coming up, Kevin Gregory tells us more rain and cold, rain and cold.
