A Letter of Complaint – Loopy Letter no. 1

Istared at the flickering cursor on the screen, and wondered how to explain my first Loopy Letter to my legion of fans. Perhaps I should remain mute and allow the letters to speak for themselves, as letters and words so often do. I doubted that further advice from me would be of assistance, and what was the big deal about having to explain everything anyway? I have always liked nonsense.

I could perhaps include a few photographs, a glimpse of my scribblings….

A letter of complaint….

…and perhaps I could tell my faithful readers that the letters are related to the now infamous ramblings about bottles on the Wonky Words blog. I chewed my lip as I thought about this confession. Some readers would turn away from this post in despair wishing that I would just let it go; they were perplexed enough by the posts about bottles of greed, and other deadly sins, how could they possibly cope with 100 letters in a similar vein?

I sighed. It was Tuesday afternoon and I really should have published something by now. The first Loopy Letter was complete with its own envelope; I had taken my reader over a decade back in time to 2006, to when the first bottle came into existence. It had been a turbulent time for all those around me, for my friends, relations, and especially my neighbours. I had been renting a tiny mid-terrace cottage in Mogwash, no. 2 Owl View….

Coming Next Week….

Loopy Letter no.2 – Who is Taramind Dewhurst??? Also, the possibility of copperplate in colour. Perhaps there will be gold, and maybe I will sign off with a flirtatious flourish. Or maybe the letter will be black and white and read all over. Groan.

    Well, that certainly looks spiffing … but I was labouring under a misapprehension. Silly me: I thought you’d be displaying the Loopy Letters in all their glory rather than providing glimpses. Obviously that’s not the Scarlet way – anyway, one gets the gist. Super curlicues, too. Many’s the time I’ve wondered about Ms Dewhurst, so looking forward with eager anticipation to the next installment where all will become clear, I very much doubt. 🙂

      Well, Mr Batarde, I don’t want to spoil the surprise for the recipient, so I feel I should withhold from publishing the letter in all its full glory until I know it has been received. I will publish it then.
      It is far too muddy in Devon for anything to be clear, and due to a storm I had two outages of power immediately after publishing this post. It must be a sign 🙂

    Your writing is exquisite and spectacular as always. Be safe in the storms. I hope you have some good emergency supplies and some comfort food to get y’all through the storms. Be safe. And thanks for sharing your lovely writing.

      Thank you, Mr Swings! I am sooooo fed up with the weather, I keep getting soaked… and the wind….ENOUGH with the wind and the lightning. I don’t want to wish away Winter and my life, but I wish the weather would behave.

      Hello, Bill! W is notoriously tricky in most scripts… too wide for my liking. I am fond of G. And S. And P, B, and T. Quite a few letters take my fancy.
      Apologies for my absence… I am working on something for Valentine’s Day!
