Do Not Try This at Home…




Try it in a café with your favorite half-caf triple mocha latte macchiato in hand...

  • Buy five postcards.

  • Address them all to yourself.

  • Write some deliciously intriguing missives from five different characters.

  • Drop them in the mail on a series of random days or weeks.

  • Postcard’s arrival = Instant writing prompt!


Absolutely, positively guaranteed to be entertaining…


Especially for your postal carrier.


PROMPT: Have some fun with this! If you’re really, really lucky, you may receive one of your brilliantly-written gems 70 years from now, as did sisters Pauline and Theresa Leisenring of Elmira, New York. Of course, postal officials say that their postcard was likely found by someone outside the postal service and recently placed in the mail. Yeah, right. I know a good story when I see one.
