Writing Process I came up with my story by thinking about things that have impacted my life in a big way and that helped form who I am. I first brainstormed three possible stories and then decided on the one that felt most important for me to tell. Ever since I had heard of this story I already had a story in mind that I wanted to tell but I was a little unsure about it just because of how personal it is. But talking to the seniors that did the project last year they all said that you would end up writing what you didn’t want to write about so I think having that mindset from the beginning it was just already set in my head that I was going to end up sharing a deep story so might as well start with it. The writing process/pace I went through was basically set by the teachers we did a first draft, then peer critique, second draft, peer critique and somewhere in between Mrs. Hood-Esparza would read our drafts and give us her critique, then we did our final draft, scripted it and practiced. My story changed a lot with each draft I did, the initial flow of the story stayed the same but I added in different moments and took some out. I liked creating multiple drafts because each time I would make a new one I would feel like my last one wasn’t my best work and the teachers requiring so many drafts pushed me to make changes until it felt right.
