IS PERCEPTION REALLY REALITY?

Our identity is largely based on perception, how the world views us. For this week's writing topic we ask you to write an Open Letter first honestly describing who people think you are, the perception of you in the eyes of others, and then compare it to who you know you are, how you think of yourself.

Putting these two different perspectives on the page will be an exercise in reflection:

-Do you see yourself as the world does?
-Can you be who you know you are?

Tag your letter "MyReality" written exactly as is to qualify for a chance to be a featured writer next week.

Dear letterists,

After a good night's sleep, you wake up and stretch. You put your feet on the floor but feel a cold object instead.

You look down and are surprised to find a little heart-shaped bottle with a note attached to it.

"This potion will make anyone fall in love with you for the rest of his/her life. Use it wisely."

Would you use it or not? And why? Write a letter about it and tag it 'love'.

Dear Lettrists,

The 18th of May is National Notebook Day. We'd love to celebrate this day.

So if you still remember your first notebook ever, write a short letter about what you wrote in your first notebook. What makes that notebook special? Does it bring back memories?

Tag your letter 'WIW' (why I write). And leave a comment below when you're done.

Lettrs Staff,

I just learned that I am the featured author! I'm blown away, humbled and feel like I won an Oscar or Grammy or some coveted award hahaha! I'm prancing around my house like a kid on Christmas morning! I just felt like a "thank you" was in order. So, thank you for validating my "achy breaky heart" that turns into beautiful words and falls onto blank paper . Whenever I've shared my work with those in my life no one has ever really gotten it.... OR they ask me if I am crying out for help haha. Anyways, Thank you for seeing it as art. Geez, thank you! Okay, I'll stop.

🖤

MY BEAUTY.

It's so easy to tell others they are beautiful. But saying the same words in the mirror seems a lot harder.

So today we're practicing just that!

Write a letter about your own beauty. Name at least three things about yourself that you find beautiful.

Tag your letter 'beauty'.

Dear Lettrists,

Some have been planning their weddings since their childhood. Others never considered it.

But today we ask you: What would your perfect wedding be like?

Would it be in a church? Or would it be outdoors, perhaps near the sea? What color would your suit or dress have? What kind of cake should there be and what would be THE song of the evening?

Describe your wedding and tag your letter #love.

Read each other's letters to get some extra inspiration. Have fun!
