This article began in the first Sprout Saturday Session which was on creative writing. The next one focuses on video and photography and is on Saturday July 30th in Meeting Room 4, Cardiff Central Library. It's free so why not pop along?

Robyn Red was a typical robin.

In the mornings, she'd wake up, catch food and fall asleep in the evenings. So, as you can see, Robyn was an average little bird.


One thing and only that one thing set her apart from anyone else - her size. It wasn't her fault, of course, that she was smaller than the average bird, but it was a fact. Robyn Red was the smallest robin that had ever been.

Now, robins aren't known for being understanding - so she was teased. Every day, birds from all over the vast forest she lived in, teased her. The worst of these were a gang of robins called Isobelle and Jerry, who were led by the meanest of birds for far around - Adrianna.

"Good for nothing bird!" squawked Adrianna - she wasn't very good with words. Even so, Robyn was hurt. She really was bad at all the things that counted. Catching food, picking berries, everything.

One thing changed all that, though. One thing that changed her status forever. She started her flying lessons.

Leading these lessons was a robin called Ms Wingraiz. Now, Robyn excelled in these lessons. She looped-the-looped, swooped, and flew sideways. She stayed in the air far longer than anyone else, because of her weight. Because she was so small, she was also very light, which helped a great deal.

It wasn't long before Robyn graduated, and became the most famous bird around. She competed in tournaments, travelled the world and always came out top.

Isobelle and Jerry wanted to be her friend, everyone did. Robyn was that modest, but liked person. She was talked about everywhere. Adrianna was stunned. But more importantly, she was jealous. Mean birds are never admired.

Moral: Don't be afraid to let your talents shine through - even if someone is bullying you.

This is absolutely fantastic!

Such a nice story, with such a nice meaning!
This is especially impressive when taking into account how twisted some of the stories thought up in that session were!

I'm really very pleased you wrote this, and it's a fantastic first story.

Well done, and I hope very much to see more from you in the near future!
