This post is based on a SW30 prompt: where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point, a Daily Post prompt: write a letter to yourself in 20 years, a Writing101 prompt: the future, and a Blogging101 prompt: publish a post based on your own, personalized take on a blogging prompt. That’s an awful lot of prompts.
And a vestige of my previous blog
This post is based on a Daily Post prompt: write a letter to your 14-year-old self.
Annie at What the Woman Wrote took up this challenge and her first letter Dear Annie, Part 1 reminded me that I had also written the first letter on my previous blog. I found the letter I wrote in 2012 and it touched me more than I expected so I decided to repost it here, unedited – despite my inner proofreader’s outrage. I added a 2015 update at the end as I felt I had forgotten a few things.
Maybe I should vlog it
This post is based on a Writing101 prompt: write your post as a letter.
Dear television series,
After much consideration, I decided it was time I wrote a post about you, and what better way to do so than to address you directly?
As you probably noticed, I have been attempting to distance myself from you in the past few weeks, limiting my TV time to two hours a day on average to make time for more useful activities. I hope you didn’t take it personally; I still love you, but you have to understand that there are other things in my life that require my attention. Some of them are even people, and not just characters.
a.k.a. A letter to my ideal audience member
This post is based on a Blogging101 prompt: publish a post you would like your ideal audience member to read while including a new-to-you element in it.
There is a special someone who can’t read my blog right now. He’s the most important person in my life and left about a week ago to go on a three-month “business trip”. If we’re lucky, we’ll be able to e-mail each other once a week and talk once a month or so. We’ve been through this a few times already but I can’t say I’m used to it.
