how do resonance structure related to its real structure?

resonance structure is just another way to write the lewis dot with different formal charges and bond order

    As long as you understand that none of the resonance structures written is the correct structure and that the real structure is considered a hybrid of all possible resonance structures, what you have written is ok.
