Inktober Day Two: A sense of foreboding steals in…

Inktober Prompt: Mindless
Goldspot Prompt: Chill

Inktober Day Two

2 October, 2019

Well, Bridie,

As happens so often, our letters must have crossed in the post. I was pleased to see it; I was expecting your recipe for pumpkin soup — goodness knows I’ve asked for it often enough!

Your missive started out well enough; I am pleased that your dear papa is improving. But, Bridget, as I read on, I confess a chill brushed through my soul and left a pattern of ice crystals there. I can hardly say why. There seemed to be a creeping, mindless aura to your words that has settled over my own brain like a living mist and has quite put me out of countenance.

Write back at once to either reassure or confide in

Your anxious friend,

P.S. And please don’t forget the soup recipe!

    1. Hey Service in Jaipur!

      Thank you for the compliment and for telling your sister about my post! I’d love to know more about what your sister is analyzing.


  1. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new
    to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    1. Dear Sysqoindia,

      I am sorry your first message didn’t come through. I like long comments and in depth conversations. I recently asked Lydia Schoch the same question and she had some excellent suggestions that you can find here: Right now, I’m using Inktober as inspiration to try some new ways of writing. And recent political events have gotten me upset enough to try to write some responses to them. I think it helps to have a sense of what audience you’re trying to reach. Do you know what sorts of people you hope will read your blog?
