Friday the 13th: The Story Behind Jason

I don’t want to overwhelm you with Halloween content, but I am overwhelmed with Halloween content, so…

Today, I am excited to introduce my first ever guest writer. I know mom wrote a blog a few months ago, but it sounds more dramatic to say, “…first ever guest writer.”

I was approached last week by this talented artist and he asked if he could share his short story with me. I immediately knew I had to share it with you.

So, without further ado…

*This story is rated PG-13 and not meant for younger audiences*

“One day, a long time ago, there was a man named Jason. One day, he was playing hockey and got crashed into a wall. He started a fight! It was the fifth fight of his career, so they threw him out of the league. He got so mad! He got a 1980 goalie mask and wrapped the end of his stick in barbed wire. 

He’s been killing referees and players ever since.”

Now we know the real story behind Jason Voorhees.

Preston has a WILD and creative imagination. He is constantly making up stories or drawing cartoons and comic strips. He came up to me this past weekend with this story and said, “Andrea, I have something for you to share on your blog.” 

Obviously, I am so proud he likes to write and definitely want to encourage him.

I hope today’s story successfully thrusts you into the Halloween spirit! If we’re lucky, there will be more to come from this aspiring young writer!
