Pocket Letters

Don’t know what they are?  That’s okay, neither did I a few days ago.

You start with a nine pocket page protector, like they use for trading cards.  You select a theme (or work one out with your trading partner) and decorate cards for each pocket, tuck little goodies (stickers. fancy paper clips, beads, etc) into each one, and a note or letter, and send the sheet off to your partner.  It looks like a lot of fun and I can’t wait to do an actual page – I’ve been making some cards and having a blast.

Anyhow, it occurred to me last night that there is a correlation between Pocket Letters and writing.

(Bear with me.  I swear this made sense at three o’clock this morning.)

Each pocket contains something different (pocket = scene) but each is related to an overall theme (theme = plot).

So now I’m going to challenge myself to write a short story with nine scenes and make a Pocket Letter for it.

Because, you know – I don’t have enough things to do in my free time.
