Writing 101: Be Brief

Be brief

You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.


Walking down the sidewalk I spot a letter crumpled in a ball on the ground next to the mailbox. I guess whoever wrote it changed their mind about mailing it. I open the envelope and read the letter inside. Turns out it’s a Dear John letter. Looks like it’s better off on the ground.
