For a delightful mini-challenge here, I thought I would send a letter to Anne Shirley, from the beloved Anne of Green Gables books.
Dear Anne Shirley,
I mostly wanted to write this letter to you to find out how your mind works. I know that you have such an imaginative mind, and I just need to tap into that creativity.
It seems even from a very young age, you were able to create things in your mind. You renamed anything and everything from the White Way of Delight to the Lake of Shining Waters. Each name seemed just as lovely and unique as the last. How do you do it?
You see, Anne, I have been trying to write a book. Wow. I really had no idea that it would take so much effort and will power. I am not sure I have it in me. I know that you seem to just be brimming with ideas and the perfect turn of a phrase. Would you mind giving me some advice on how to tap my own inner imagination? It seems to be lost. Tell me how to see the beauty in everyday things - trees, flowers, rivers, and my job. And give me a few pointers on how to express these thoughts properly on paper.
With great thanks for anything you can share,
And just as an update:
