You are all fabulous. You offer advice, bolster my confidence, provide support, say you’ll fly with me to New York to stall my inevitable nervous breakdown, AND play with me every Tuesday. I think you’re great. Also, those pants/Crocs/Underoos/chaps really bring out your eyes.

So I’d thought I’d start this PROMPTuesday on a happy note, because what I want you to do this week is the exact opposite: write a letter of complaint. Write it to your grocery store, your breakfast, your toilet paper…anything you find lacking, subpar, or freaky. For instance, my letter will be to Thomas the Train’s wooden figure wranglers. I personally find the way that none of the Thomas characters move their mouths when they talk a little creepy. And I intend to tell the wranglers so.
As for you, the sky’s the limit. Write your letter to anyone, anything, any Thomas character you choose.
As usual, the PROMPTuesday rules are thus:
- You must write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kick in. Just set a timer, make your kid count to 600 slowly, whatever. It’s an honor system. And I trust you.
- Keep to 250 words or less.
- Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy in the writing process.
- Post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.
Have fun getting good and complainy™ (my new best friend, Amelia Sprout’s, made-up word).
