Prompt: Writing Letters You Might Never Send

This week’s prompt talked about how we communicate? What do we use to communicate? Eyes, attention, body language, respect, support, and words.

You can communicate with a person and have it be a very intimate connection. You may also connect with someone and have it be a one way experience.

There are many ways to communicate with each other, as there is with your characters. How do they communicate with each other?

As a writer, how do you connect on a deeper level to your readers? Sometimes you write to a specific person, even if you are writing for many. Others say they write to and for themselves.

The prompt narrowed down to this:

Write a letter to yourself or someone else that speaks the truth, says what you really wish to tell them, no holds barred.

It could be a letter sent, or one that is written and never sent. It doesn’t matter.

If you’d like to experiment with character building, have your main character or any character in your story write that letter.
