I just realized NaPoWriMo has begun. I feel like a complete fool for not starting early. Anyway, here’s my entry for Day 4. I promise to do the others when I find the time..!
The prompt for Day 4 was..
Today, let’s turn our vision outward, and write fan letters. I challenge you to write a poem in the form of a fan letter to a celebrity. Now, this could be a celebrity from long ago, and needn’t be an actor or singer (though it could be). You could write to George Washington or Dorothy Dandridge, Marie Curie or The Weeknd. Happy writing!
Here’s a poem for Jeffrey Archer, my favourite author..!
It’s hard to imagine life without you
Wondering always “Now what will he do!?”
Making us travel through time
Into a world of love, friendship, betrayal and crime
Successful bankers, excellent writers
Aspiring mountaineers, witty lawyers
Cunning con men, escaping prisoners
Great teachers, best thinkers
Fighting heroes, wise chairmen
Aspiring politicians, strong-headed women
Plots that are riveting
Story lines that are just amazing
So beautiful, so elaborate, so simple
Complete with such lovable people
Harry, Giles or Emma
Nat, Sebastian or Anna
Jessica, George or Connor
Meeting them has been my honour
Characters worth acquainting with
But can’t help grieving their tragic death
Varying professions, varying settings
But that signature style-never changing
An author to idolise
An author that can mesmerise..!
For those of you who don’t k ow, Jeffrey Archer is an amazing author. He is the author of The Clifton Chronicles ( 6 books, 7th one coming out in November..!) , Kane and Abel, Paths Of Glory, Prisoner Of Birth, The Eleventh Commandment, False Impression and a whole lot of other great books..! His master touch can turn anything to a thriller..! Sadly, he has the tendency to kill off characters you really fall in love with.. 😦 But that doesn’t stop him from being my favourite author..!
