I am Marianna Mozart, fourteen years old, called Nannerl.
You, dear mortal, have probably never heard of me or my work, for everyone is ever so concerned over Little Brother and his achievements.
To my mother:
" My, how smart this boy is!"
To my aunt:
"Wherever did he learn to play?"
To my father:
" You have raised an intelligent and talented son, Leopold."
But have any of these fine people said anything about me, someone of equal talent to my brother?
Never.
After all, I am but a girl.

And my brother? You most certainly have heard of him.
His name is Mozart. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

When I hear that name come from someone's lips, it is like a thorn in my side.....

The author's comments:
This is a bit short, but It is about nannerl's resntment towards her star brother.... I can write more if it is requested!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. " --Marianne Williamson

Yeah. It is for sure something that can hold my interest, the whole idea can go on a lot of branches and all that.
