Learning To Write by David Rae
First day at school, Mrs Whyte sat me at a desk and gave me a sheet of paper. She gave me a pencil and told me to write. I wrote with big letters. I filled the whole page with just one line of long strokes, swirling loops and tails and dashes. I was first finished in the class, and I held my paper up to show everyone else. But that was no good; it needed to be small letters, so I wrote in tiny letters that no one else could read. There seems to be no middle way with me.
