At the beginning of our short story unit, I had trouble channeling my creativity into the stories I wrote. But eventually, I was able to come up with a pretty good idea for my final story. This story, in my opinion, is different. It’s almost like it’s a metaphor for something deeper. I didn’t want to write something cliche, or even worse, boring. I wanted to write something with purpose. During our short story writing unit, I got to put some of the crazy ideas in my head into writing.
