Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge is ready to step in and negotiate an end to the NBA lockout. This week's word is "writing", and my story is called "Just Like Her".
Madison has the coolest handwriting in the whole class, Jennifer thought. Madison was more popular, more athletic, taller, prettier, smarter, nicer, better in every way. She wanted her letters to look just like hers, all bubbly and even and friendly looking. She practiced at night, writing her own name over and over, wanting it to be perfect. They had a spelling test and Jennifer wanted her name to look just right on the top. She wrote it again and again, erasing and rewriting, until Miss Blake's voice snapped through her trance.
"OK, class. Time! Hand your papers forward, please."
