Billy Boy - creative writing.

Extracts from this document...


GCSE Creative Writing Produce a piece of creative work approximately 500 words long. This may be a short story or the introduction to a novel.

Why couldn't she cook some "Pukka Tukka" from the Naked Chef book we bought in Smiths? No imagination. I put my foot on the high chair tray and wiggled my toes, while waiting for inspiration.
