Writing 101, Day 9: Reinvent the Letter format

Posted on

A letter  from my wit


Dear me,

It’s so pathetic to see you struggling with today’s task of writing a letter.

Surely you have written lots of letters when there were no phones and computers.

You wrote to your father whenever he was transferred to some other place.

You wrote to your maternal uncles whom you loved very much.

You wrote to your sisters and brothers after your marriage.

You wrote to your children when they were not with you.

And on many more occasions also.

So what’s the problem now?

I’m getting bored to death seeing you running to the commons, reading some posts then coming back to write your post.

You start writing then suddenly don’t find it interesting. You go back to read some other letters. Suddenly an idea pops up in your mind you come start writing and again delete it and…

Past half an hour you are doing this and getting on my nerves.

There are so many tips Cheri has given in her post.

I know you need lots of poking and encouragement, inspirations but there is a limit to everything.

If you don’t start writing in next five minutes I’m going to leave you forever.

Wish you some wit and good luck.

Your wit.




About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. Oh, this is a wonderful post! So true of so many of us I am confident in saying. I, was once a prolific letter writer…and I have had a letter form my der friend sitting unanswered for over a month. No excuse. Today is the day.


  2. Hahaha that sounds like me when I try to do my homework for an online class. I do the same thing and always feel like everyone else has better posts. I enjoyed your letter thank you.

  3. Oh I feel that way so often, except sometimes I think my wit is separate from me and just shows up on a whim.

    I love your picture!

  5. Oh my Indira. You wit and humor is just contagious! You have said your frustrations in a very interesting manner. Hmm. You’re really one of those writers that we should read word per word and not scan. Great job! 😀

  7. *smile from ear to ear* Witty! My wit also is not cooperating right now – can’t find apt words to express the joy I felt by the light hearted humor you’ve created here…
