Prompt:

Remember the good old days when the hand-written words meant more to us than an e-mail/text would ever do? Those days when the fresh fragrance of ink wafted through the envelops to unleash a world of emotions. The times when a letter handed to someone, or received by someone in the mail was a special occasion. Let’s bring back those times… or maybe just try to bring those memories.

This February, a letter is about to change the way you write your story. Imagine a letter being received by you suddenly. Whether this letter is mistakenly sent to you or you found it somewhere in the attic or was deliberately slid from under your door– whatever it may be, it surely has a story to tell. Let’s hear that story, the story behind the letter- as if we’re reading it to someone and the listener says, “I’m glad you shared this story with me”.

Simply put: You found a letter, which may or may not be addressed to you,  then write a story about what is written in it. Interpret it the way you want as long as your main story is based on that letter.

So pick up your thoughts, imagine the events that resulted in this letter and write them down. Bare all creativity you’ve got, bring it close and make it heartfelt. Then release it in the Universe for others to experience it. (Actually, send it to us and we will help you deliver them!)

Send in your entries to penmagica@gmail.com in a word document along with a 2-3 line bio (not required if previously sent) and a cover picture for your story (optional). The subject of your mail should be “Entry for #YouveGotMail″ (compulsory). Instantly earn 250 Penmancy Points on submission.
