The nightmare – someone took my car, my keys and was trying to kill me. These are all universal symbols not too hard to figure out. My car is how I get there/travel. Keys are needed to unlock things: could be my house, my car, my heart, my creativity – you get it. So when I reflect on how my life has been going lately, I know what it means to me. It means that the situations in my life that seem beyond control at the moment are keeping me from my writing (creativity). I have an important deadline. Unless I recognize this and draw some pretty tight boundaries around my time I’m dead in the water.

I’ve saved most of the letters I’ve ever received, at least the important ones. I always thought I’d enjoy reading them again someday when I get old and have nothing else to do. Ha! Well here I am and I still have plenty of interesting stuff to do.
I just found a fascinating place to submit letters, the ones you write not the ones you receive. But that’ll work to prime your writing pen. Find an old box of letters and answer one from today’s POV.
I have a precious collection of letters from my dad when he was in the Air Force and I was in elementary school. I’ve carried them from place to place my whole life. When my dad died several years ago I found a cigar box, inside tied in an old faded pink ribbon, were all the letters I had written to him.
I’m going to follow my own advise and answer one of them from my heart of today. Then I’ll submit it here: http://ourunsentletters.com/writers-guidelines/
