I was speaking to one of my young people this week about the foundations of their blog. They said: “I’m just writing the letters I need to read.”

This got me thinking about the letters I wanted to read growing up (and later) and searched for in bookshops, libraries and later online. It never occurred to me to write exactly what I needed to read – to read and sometimes heal.

This week’s Post-40 Bloggers’ writing prompt is based on that conversation. This week we are asking you to:

Write a letter you need to read

As always, let us know if you write to this prompt and we will give you a shout-out on our social media – and may even feature your post on the front page of our website.

Have a great writing week.
