Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction
A Letter HomeDear Mom,
The archaeological dig is going well. They say that three mudslides a day is a little more than usual but I don’t mind.
From the moment that I first chose to be a student of this discipline I have fantasized about this type of adventure. I never dreamed it would be in Timbuktu though.
My biggest contribution so far is the hydroelectric generator that I invented. It has a gland around it to make it super watertight. Too bad there isn't a small river or stream within a hundred miles.
To be honest I don’t have a lot of common ground with the locals. I feel trapped in the monolingual jungle of my cultural upbringing. They are great though. I am looking forward to them bringing back the clothes I loaned them last week.
Sorry this note is “off the cuff” but my time is limited. They tell me that I will be on the temporary bridge crew tomorrow so I should get some sleep. Who knew that you needed bridges between sand dunes?
Your Son in Mali,
