Letter to the writer within

by oliver818

Hey Writer Within.

I know it's been a while since we talked, and that things didn't end well last time. Words were exchanged, and I might have said some things I didn't mean. You didn't have to go silent, though. That was really rather cruel.

Anyway, I'm writing now because I suspect it was you who helped me out during the writing course. If so- thanks. Also, I've been thinking about last time, and I've taken to heart what you told me- that I was too young and naive. But now my hair is thinning, I'm single again, and I think I might actually have some material we can use. So if you're still in there, and if you'd like to try again, then please get in touch.


The guy out here

PS- If you are someone else living within me and have received this by mistake, then please just ignore it. Although if the writer left a forwarding address, feel free to send me that. Or, even better, send it on to them yourself, if that's possible. I don't know what the postal service is like in there- hopefully better than the one out here.

This is an entry for a short story competition. The topic was 'Write a letter to your inner writer.'
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
