Today, have a character receive a letter from themselves. Having thought themselves exceedingly clever, the past version of this character meticulously detailed everything that would have to happen to achieve some far-flung dream.
Naturally though, the present version of this character has done none of these things, and instead, let life take them where it chooses.
Does the arrival of such a letter prompt a change in the character's behavior/course of action? What sort of goal might the character in the past had? Is there any reason why they might start chasing dreams from years ago just at the push of a letter's will?
We'll see if anyone submits anything for the bestof contest, if not, then I'll just dole them out to whomever I can find, though I've got a few people in mind. In the meantime, enjoy!
