"Dear John"- Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 60

Jenny Matlock

Saturday Centus is Mrs Jenny Matlock's writing meme that has participants write up to 100 words to a given prompt. To celebrate the 60th week, we are only to use 60 words with a two-word-prompt, "Dear John".

This is my text:
This is Sanna's reply to a letter from John Tell:

Dear John,

I am sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. She was a wonderful woman.

My divorce was final in April. The children and I moved to a smaller apartment with a bed-sofa in the livingroom, that you can use, if your work takes you to Sweden.



Wordcount according to WordCalc: 60


Best wishes,

Whenever I write about Sanna, I am writing purely fictional texts, even if Sanna's life borrows content from my own. There is no "John Tell". He is inspired by several different boys I knew in school. Since John Tell is an American, he will give Sanna someone for whom she can explain about life in Sweden. He may be worth the fictional airfare, just for that purpose, as tourist and old aquaintance.

First, Anna, Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my entry. Your opinion is important to me.

As to this mini-post - Bravo! You said a ton in a few words. Also, thanks for the explanation about Sanna. Don't make me worry!

Very senstitive...and full of promise for something in the future with Sanna.

Excellent Anna !

What a sweet condolence letter and a hopeful sign of maybe a new life and relationship with John. I love it when friends move away and offer to house us if we happen to be in their town. A friend who will share their home with you is one to treasure !

Well done, Anna.

What a different take on the prompt. Everyday issues make a vivid story.

Oh what a story line! Interesting.. :)

Ann said...

A nice letter to John. Perhaps we will be hearing more about John and Sanna in the future. (purely fictional of course :))

Anna, this letter has so many possibilities cleverly contained in the word crafting.

I really enjoy the way my mind can create several different conclusions from your little story.

Sending you a big hug for moving strength!

Thanks for linking up.
