Writing prompt #15 is to write a letter as or to one of your favorite characters. I do this more often than I would like to admit. Bonus points if this character (or their creator) has an email or physical address and you send it!
I wrote a letter to Bailey from Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus after finishing the book for the first time. At the end of the novel, Bailey hands “you” a business card printed with his email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Today I finally worked up the nerve to send it out.
For those of you wondering, the email address is real! Bailey’s auto-response reads:
“If you are inquiring as to the itinerary of the circus, we apologize,
but it is against our policy to disclose information about current or
Other inquiries will be responded to in as timely a manner as possible.”
Will he write back? We’ll see!
