School has started and while I knew everything would go to shit, I wasn’t quite prepared for the major onslaught of anxiety. So, to cheer myself up (and, hopefully, all of you) I hereby present to you:
The Childhood Works of Sophia Hudson
The first story I ever wrote was titled “I Am Fire”, which was about a girl who wishes for her birthday to…well, be fire. For those who can’t look at the images or don’t want to, I’ll type it up here. It’s long(ish) but if you have the time, it’s so funny. I even broke it up into chapters for you (most of them are about a setence long) and I typed it EXACTLY as it was written. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them. I really implore you to read this; I can’t imagine it not brightening someone’s day.
“I am fire

Okay. So, that was a rollercoaster for everyone involved. I hope you enjoyed (I know I did!!). If anyone actually, like, looks at this and has fun with it, I’ll post the second story sometime tomorrow. It’s about a boy and his magical flying dog—pretty heavy stuff.
