Writing 101: Be Brief

The assignment:  You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. And your twist? Be as succinct as possible.

I stared unblinking at the crumpled and well-worn letter that I had found fluttering in the breeze on the bridge that I escape to for my daily lunch break, my heart aching in my chest. I attempt to gather my thoughts, my lunch and my keys for that return trip to work.  All I could think about was the absolute and infinite sadness found on that page.  I pause in shock as the truth dawns on me, and I dash to the side of the bridge to peer over.
