I like to write. Here's a sampling of my work, all fiction.
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Julia. She was spoiled to the bone. She had five pigs with long tails and a hare. She also had a servant named Pierre.
One day she had just fixed her hair in pigtails and was sitting in a chair, reading a book, when someone cut off her pigtails.
"Pierre! Pierre! Someone has cut off my pigtails!" Julia cried. Pierre rushed out of the room and headed for the barn where Julia kept her pigs. When he saw that the pigs still had tails he went in to an outrage.
"Liar! liar!" shouted Pierre, forgetting his manners.
"No! No, I mean my hair!"
"Oh!" said Pierre and he rushed past her in one door out another. He finally reached the room where the hare dwelled and saw that it still had a tail. He rushed back into the room where Julia was settling down again to read her book, shouting "liar, liar!"
Julia looked up from her book and said "I am not lying! I am telling the truth!"
Then Pierre saw that she didn't have her pigtails any more. "Ah!" thought Pierre. "That's what she means."
But he didn't say it out loud. So to this day she is called the Spoiled Little Liar.

One day I was so bored because it was raining. Then the sun came out.
"A rainbow!" I cried, and then I got an idea. I could follow the rainbow. So I did. I walked and walked until I found another rainbow. The indigo was gone! I got so mad. I decided to go try and find the missing indigo. I had walked a really long time, but I was so mad I wouldn't stop. I used my mad energy for walking. I was yet to discover that I would find the gold of a leprechaun. I could not go home now, so when I found the leprechaun I asked him if I gave the gold back, would he take me home?
"Yes," he said. And he did!
