The letter…

Morning guys and Happy Friday!!
I have recently completed another ‘writing 101’ challenge which I thought I would share with you all.
Unfortunately page 29 did not exactly fill me with inspiration (tut tut author). ‘Charlie’ was the only word on the page which I thought I could do something with.
Let me know what you think!

Day Fourteen: To Whom It May Concern

Today’s Prompt: Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration. If you need a boost, Google the word and see what images appear, and then go from there.

Today’s twist: write the post in the form of a letter.

You have a number of options: you can write a letter to the word or an image, or an open letter to the world inspired by the word. You could pen a series of imaginary notes between you and a friend, or between two fictional characters, or between old you and young you.

Dear Charlie,

I am sorry it has taken me until now to write this letter. In all honesty, I am lost for words. The few words I have been able to find I will try to share with you now.
Diane was a great woman. A doting mother who loved her children very much. A loyal wife who’s mission in life was to please you and others around her. The world really will be lost without her.
I share your pain Charlie as do many others. We have to be strong for the children and believe that Diane is still with us. Looking down on us each day. Her beautiful smile radiant from above.
You will always be part of our family Charlie. You know where I am if you need me. A friend, a brother or a shoulder to cry on, I’m here.
Love to you all.

    This was such a well structured letter, thought it read nicely, and it seemed realistic and hopeful.
