Today’s prompt was suggested by the story I read yesterday, Incognito by Susan M. Lemere.
Write a story in letter form
- Use two or more voices, or let us see only one side of the conversation.
- The ‘letters’ can be email exchanges, text messages, Facebook updates, or imaginary hand-written correspondence from sweethearts separated by war, an ocean, feuding parents…whatever makes sense to you.
- Try to introduce some mystery, some misunderstanding, or some desire on the part of one of the participants. Frustrate us, tease us, keep us guessing about how it’s going to turn out.
