Letter, word, phrase

She was a smart and clever little girl, but when she was a child, while she was taking her first classes at school, she could realised she had a big trouble: she could not write.

Despite knowing that this ability was quite relevant to her life, she had a special interest on fairytales and literature, for her grandmother read them to her every single night. This is one of the strongest memories of her childhood.

Her parents found out her competence to create stories and to describe a pharaonic castle with a sweet princess waiting for her handsome prince in his white horse. She could make up forbidden love stories as well as other complex realities, composed of elves, dragons, dwarfs, fairies and so on. As soon as they could, they enrolled her in a school in order to develop her writing skills.

However, they were very disappointed and sad about her weakness. Neither teachers´ attempts nor all her effort were being effective. The more she tried, the more frustrated she was. But gradually she could realise she had improved her capacity to draw an ordinary letter, to write a single word and to create a short phrase.

She was so enthusiastic and proud of herself that she could not stop writing anymore. Someday she heard that “practice makes perfect”, so she was determined to recover all the lost time. However, although her development had been very significant, she was never recognized for that and it made her feel weaker, for everyone wants to be recognized by their achievements.

Even though being an innocent, ingenuous and harmless little girl, she always knew for what she wanted to live. She desired to be a writer. Time passed by and now she is a famous writer with lots of books published and translated into many languages. When she thinks about her history, she realises that she just has to follow what she wants, doesn´t matter what others say about it. She knows that people wants to be recognized as they are, and now she can show the world that if you have a dream you can achieve it by yourself.
