Were you able to resist the temptation and wait until Saturday to open this? I donâ€™t careâ€”just hope you finished the other through to the end.
What do you think of my efforts at fiction writing? I think Iâ€™d probably better stick to pomes. It was kind of fun, though. I hope you werenâ€™t really counting on my being there this weekend.
All of this is being written at the office. Work there is not only easy this weekâ€”it is non-existent. Iâ€™ve already written one paper and typed two others, and caught up on all my correspondence in the past two days. Think Iâ€™ll bring a book tomorrow!
Iâ€™ve also written some more poetry, but itâ€™s home, unfortunately, so I wonâ€™t send it to you now. I will sometime, though, since itâ€™s what you mean when you speak of doodling with words.
Itâ€™s almost quitting time now, or Iâ€™d probably keep right on writing all afternoon. Tell me what you think of my short story, (if itâ€™s printable!).
