(THE WONDERLAND BLOGFEST IS THE POST BELOW)
Creative writing needs a variety of inspiration—–a few weeks ago I spoke about a letter-writing workshop that I had participated in which sent me on a writing spree. I then sent out a call for hand-written letters.
Some really awesome bloggers responded, and I’ve been writing to folks all over the world, people who I do not know in real life, but who already feel like they’re friends, thanks to the interests we have in common. And the letters.
Today, I’d like to share the results of two different sets of challenges, which my penpals Stuart and Michelle have been kind enough to put up on their blogs. I love them for doing that, because it gives me a chance to share their responses with the world.
Please visit them: I’m blown away by both.
Stuart is a flash fiction writer with a lyrical voice that I love, and who I met during the A to Z challenge. Michelle I met when she responded to my call for hand-written letters, and I look forward to reading more of her work.
I’m honored they chose to write to me and send me responses to my writing prompts! I love writing prompts because they led me to my book of short shorts: A to Z stories of Life and Death.
Have you hand-written a letter lately? Do you like writing in answer to writing prompts or challenges?
A million thanks to Rachel Morgan, who featured A to Z Stories of Life and Death on her blog. It is thanks to people like her in the community that I’m grateful I have a blog, and blog-friends!
