Behind The Scenes of “Okay”

This is a bit of background info on my “short” story okay.

I wrote the basis of it four years ago in middle school. I was homeschooled but I had this writing class I went to once a week where I got my first taste of creative writing. It all started with the teacher asking us to write a short story. It could be about whatever we wanted, to me that was the best thing I had ever heard. My mind started going crazy, I had so many ideas but one stuck out the most. I was only 13 so my ideas were limited on what I had experienced in life.

The first draft ended up being the only one I was able to turn in because I hand wrote it and didn’t have time to edit it. It was written in a composition book with the cover ripped off. it was shorter by like four pages but I was so proud of it.

A year later I had another opportunity to edit it and turn it in again except this time I definitely wrote it a lot better and I added about two pages of just details. I even looked up trials for child abuse which wasn’t the best idea but it definitely made that part of the story more realistic.

This year I had so many people read through it and help me edit, from my English teacher to my friend Jacob. I really enjoyed finding new ways to go about describing the situation and keeping the flow throughout it.

I am very proud of it and I think everyone should have a short story to add to and change up because it is a great way to see how your writing style changes and how much you improve on things. I decided to share this with you because I am very proud of it and wanted the people that I love to see it.

Do you have a story that you are writing or an essay for school that you wrote and are super proud of?

Love you all,
