Previous Winner Example:
This is an example from a previous writing competition from "Young Writers". The competition asked children to write a diary extract with a difference...
Today, I had to make a big decision. I had to
choose between keeping the humans happy or
keeping myself happy. I (used to) work at a
Starbucks in Chicago, Illinois, and insults were
coming towards me. At the time, I made nothing of
it, considering the humans were just picky about
their choice of sustenance. But today that
changed. One of my customers was a very rich
man, according to my database. I made his coffee
as I usually did, but I malfunctioned at the moment
when I was handing him his cup. I spilt it on him.
He cursed at me and called me names, but the one
that really stuck with me was 'scrap pile'.
Something inside me snapped. I was feeling anger!
At that moment, I had to make a choice: stay true
to my purpose or do what made me happy. I chose
the latter. I slammed his head against the counter
and knocked him out, stole his money and put his
clothes on. Thankfully, the model of machine I am
looks almost like a human.
I'll find a safe place and hope to free others from
their shackles. I just hope I can help them...
