Being So Very Wilful is an early short story by Agatha Christie probably written around 1908 or 1909. The story was never published and no longer exists. However, Christie had sent the story to Eden Philpotts, the English author and also a family friend and neighbour asking for his views. Philpotts replied that "All is going exceedingly well with your work" and that "if you can write like this now you might go far." The title of the story is taken from Tennyson's poem "Idylls of the King".[1]
