On the Inside

Back cover:
Kaylah Roberts is tired of hearing about Taylor Johnson from her friends and family. She doesn’t like the way he live, or the way he acts.Kaylah is days away from her 18th birthday and is upset when she learns that her mother’s childhood neighbour’s son, Tyler, was giving permission to spend the summer with them.She quickly finds out that Tyler isn’t so bad after all. He’s fun to hang around with and he’s a born-again Christian. He quickly turns into her best-friend, and she turns into his first best-friend.Kaylah realizes throughout the summer, that, not everyone remembers who they are and where they’ve come from. And sometimes you have to get to know someone before judging them.

I wrote a story last year. I called it “On the Inside” and I absolutely love this story. It only took me 2 months to write and I barely had to do any editing on it. It was a story about how friendships are sometimes hard, and we may lose them, but we always remember those friends.
As I wrote that story, I imagined myself in the main characters spot. After I began thinking I was Kaylah, it was easier to write it. I cried through some partts when I was writing and I couldn’t believe I felt like I was her.
When I finished the story, I couldn’t believe I was done. I wanted to write more, but I knew that Kaylah Roberts story was over for now.
Now, it’s a year later and I’m ready to write more about her. I know what I want to write and I have it outlined. I have 2 stories I could write about her.
I just have one question for myself: Do I write it where I left off, or a year later?
