Writing 101, Day Five: 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.

Lovely, I love short and sweet!

What’s that?
A letter?
Shall I pick it up?
No ones about,
Well just a peek
Oh look it accidentally opened…..honestly your honour
Dear reader,
If you are reading this then you are already dead!

  1. This makes me think of “The Ring/Ringu” (except you have to watch a video tape in those movies).

    Very nice job and you put a smile on my face (the last word did it for me). Kudos!

  2. I am cracking UP! Among one of the best of the day that I’ve read thus far.

    OMG! The ending? BWHAHHAHAAA!!! (If you respond, I’ll know you’re not really gone…) 😉
