One of the more interesting writing tricks I’ve heard of is having a character write a letter on a specific topic to get a feel for how their head works. Below is the letter for a character to recommend someone for a fire arms permit. You have 11 minutes to write and post a message from when you read this. All posts will be enjoyed.
To: Fire Arms Licensing officer Malden Police Department, I have known Michael Hawke since June of 2008. He was my immediate supervisor for several months. Mike is a great guy, he throws totally bitchin parties with all the blow you can imagine, professionals for all tastes. He smuggled in these Panamanian triplets that make me wanna move, damn their fine but with the acne they look way to old now. He even told me how to get out paying taxes by using the social of kids that die real young. Give him the license he’s already got the guns and the long drives to the Canadian border to buy ammo cost a lot of money that we could spend on acid.
