Judith Guest initially wanted to write "Ordinary People" as a short story, but when she started writing, she found that she could not stop herself from writing more and more. She began to explore the characters in greater depth. According to Guest, she did not realize that she had written two hundred pages. The story took her three years to write. She eventually left her teaching job and decided to concentrate on finishing her first novel that had begun as a short story. Since she did not have any publishing agent, she sent the manuscript to a publisher, but it was immediately rejected. Another publisher also rejected the book and said that the book did have some satiric bite, but the level of writing was not good enough to sustain interest.
