Hump Day Improvisation

Good morning everyone. No picture today, I keep getting error messages. So let's use our imagination.

Your character is writing something. A letter, a grocery list, a to do list. Is it a dear John letter, a I miss you letter, or a list of some kind. Perhaps she is the reporter of the gossip column. Anything goes. Make sure we are in the characters head and feeling the reason for the letter. What internal conflict accompanies this?

For those who are new to my blog, write something in the comment section. Even if your not a "writer," you can still participate.

I'm drawing a blank right now - I might come back :)) I did write a story that was actually a letter from a character. I forgot how much fun that was till now - thanks for reminding me. Maybe I'll have one of my characters write to me...

Dear Fluffy Stuff Cushion Company,

It is with a heavy heart that I, Melvin Malice, must inform you, per my deal with the district attorney, that I have committed the greatest atrocity of all, having torn a tag off of one of your pillows.

Enclosed in this note is a check for $37.95, the suggested retail price of your orchid-patterned cushion 3000. Please accept my humblest apologies.

Yours,
Melvin Malice

I know how it is Il, sometimes the brain just won't cooperate.

Loved it Siv, especially that part at the end that brought it all together.

Nice to meet you Ayesha, thanks for the compliment.

Hi Jeffrey, great sentences. Loved the last name, Malice. Hehehe.

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving a comment.

He'd be writing up flight reports, which aren't that exciting...

I scratched two options onto the paper with a hotel pen. 1) lunch or 2) a new pen.

I looked over at my laptop fried from last nights run in with magic and decided one the pen.

After all a good pen for a wand was a great conductor.

He'd be writing up what a day he's had and grumbling about the new bullet holes in his bar.

Thanks Alex, Summer and M. Pax, loved them all.

Here is my contribution.

Herbert, you really need to control that snoring. Until you do, I'll be at the Holiday Inn.
