“It is a relatively little-known fact that over the course of a single year, about twenty million letters are delivered to the dead.”— “The Girl With No Shadow” by Joanne Harris
Prompt: Write about a letter delivered 25 years after it was written.
Or 33 years after it was sent.
Or 18 years.
You can write from the point of view of the recipient, the sender, or both.
Or write about the unintended recipient . . . the person who now lives at the address the letter was sent to.
Does the letter reveal disturbing or euphoric news?
