Writing 101 – Day Fourteen

Posted: June 19, 2014 in Writing 101

Here’s the challenge today.

Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What jumps out at you? Start there, and try a twist: write in the form of a letter.

I picked out the word ‘Paranoia’ and decided to write him / her / it a letter.

Here we go:


Dear Paranoia

                 I just wanted to write you this letter to tell you that me and you are through. We are over! You’ve messed with my head for the very last time!

                What you have done to me is just bang out of order. I hope you’re proud of yourself. You very, very nearly got me… But I’m on to you now, you sneaky son of a bitch.

                You see, I’m not paranoid at all. All that is happening is all too real. It’s not paranoia if they are really watching, you know.

                They are watching… They are there now… I can see them despite of the walls and the drawn curtains. I know they are there. Waiting for me. But I’m not leaving. I’m not leaving I tell you. Oh, I know you want me to Paranoia, but you can kiss it.

                I’ve got you beat my old foe… I’ve got you beat.


               Goodbye, Old Fool
