A Short Story


An Unexpected Saturday



For my exhibition project, I wrote a short story and made an audio recording of myself reading a small section of it. I started writing this story one day in the creative writing club, when we did fifteen minute stories. We spent five minutes coming up with an idea for the story, another five minutes writing it, and the last five were spent reading it out to the other club members. 

I chose to continue this story for Exhibition because I was not able to write very much of it during the time we had in the club, and I wanted to see where I could go with it. Another reason I chose this is because creative writing is one of my favorite things to do. However, in all honesty, it’s not very often that I follow through with it and actually finish the story I started. I decided that this would be a great opportunity and motivation to finally do so. 

I have learned throughout the process of this project that, if I give myself the time and have the proper motivation, I can come up with a story that I am proud of and willing to share. This was also a learning experience for me because I have never written a short story before, and this helped me to learn how to tie up a story in a shorter amount of words and keep a piece of creative writing concise and interesting.
