Writing 101, Day Five.
You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. And your twist? Be as succinct as possible.
I sat quietly on the train, waiting between suits and briefcases. Without looking at anyone, I silently crossed my ankles and tucked a lock of hair behind my ear.
As we eventually pulled out of the city, I thought about the letter I found today, now tucked away safely in my handbag. A small, almost imperceptible smile crossed my lips as I re-read its contents in my mind.
I pulled my handbag closer into my chest, squeezing it against me.
I was going home. Perhaps today was not such a good day to die after all.
