This is one of my favorite forms of writing and I don’t know why I don’t do it more:
Write a story in the form of letters, journal entries, blog posts, tweets or other epistle.
- This used to seem like a bit of an old-fashioned story form now that we no longer have five-times-a-day letter delivery (as in Jane Austen’s day) but with all of our new ways of communicating in the written word it is ripe for a reboot.
- You should feel free to use old-fashioned letters, but consider using other communication vehicles.
- Remember that all the information must come in the form of communications from one person at a time. No dialogue attribution, no speculation by a narrator. This is essentially a First-Person format, but you can have more than one person talking, in turn.
