In the spirit of the release of my new novel Abandon, this week I’m doing a retrospective on my writing history. Today, I bring to you “My Grown Up Tooth, and My Baby Tooth”. This was a story that I wrote in 2nd grade. Because I think it’s important to see how I spelled half of this, I have decided to take pictures of the new tooth story for you to view.
If you’re too lazy to click on the pictures below (which I assure you, are worth the click) then here is the transcript:
My Grownup Tooth and My Baby Tooth (A New Beginning)
Dedicated to: Mommy
This is the story of how I got my grownup tooth. I was surprised when I found my tooth was loose. I started to wiggle my right when I knew it. It got looser, and looser and looser. My brother John kept asking me when it would come out, but I did not answer. It hurt when I wiggled it. When I knew my grown up tooth was coming in, I was scared because I (thought) that it would grow behind. I did not wiggle it for a day. I played gams with my tooth. I played guess. It was about trying to guess when my tooth would come out. And I also played tug and it was about trying to pull my tooth out. I liked to play the games. It seemed like a long time before my tooth came out. Finally it came out. I screamed “Hip hip hooray, this it the happiest moment in my life!” I couldn’t eat apples for a long time. I am glad I can eat apples now. I have five new teeth now. I know a secret about the tooth fairy, she is really my mom and this is my new beginning.

Really – you should totally look at the images though. The spelling is priceless.
