Prompt: Write a letter to the reader of a novel you haven’t written yet.

To whom it may concern,

The novel you are about to read is the culmination of years of blood, sweat, and tears. And while I don’t expect you to hold it in the same regard as I do, I would ask that you approach each sentence, and each paragraph with the openness and excitement of a child. This novel is going to test your deepest held beliefs, and this is not by accident. Though the story is set to Sci-Fi, it is in no way irrelevant to the struggles we are all facing today. hopefully, you will simultaneously turn the last page of my book and the first page of your next chapter. My hope is to inspire you, the reader, to question what we are told to blindly believe from our elected leaders. Not every conspiracy is a theory, and not every half truth is innocent. Remember these facts as you immerse yourself in what I can only describe as a cerebral space mystery with overtones of love and triumph.

With warmest regards,


 Okay, so this sounds absolutely ridiculous. However, I am publishing it anyway because my goal is not to craft a masters’ jar, my goal is to learn how to mold clay. Thanks sis.
