Fall Writing Frenzy 2021: Dear Fall

Pumpkins, changing leaves, comfy sweaters. It’s that time of year again.
Fall Writing Frenzy time, that is.

Many thanks to Kaitlyn and Lydia for again hosting this wonderful, community-building event and to Ameerah for being a guest judge. For more information, click here. To see the other awesome entries, click here.

Because I like fun visuals, I put my story in image form for here on the blog, but the text-only version is below.

Dear Fall
Where ARE you? I want pumpkins and cider and Halloween! I miss you!
Love Annie

Dear Annie,
Summer likes watching the start of school. I’m coming, but it’ll be a bit longer.
Love, Fall

Dear Fall
My sweater is SO PRETTY!
I wanna wear it but mom says I have to wait for you.
Love Annie

Dear Annie,
I’m sorry, Summer says they want a few more weeks of flip-flops.
Love, Fall

Dear Fall
I threw out my flip-flops. Please come soon!
Love Annie

Dear Annie,
Oh no, Summer loved how pink they were. Pardon the rain, it made them cry.
Love, Fall

Dear Fall
Here’s last year’s leaf I saved.
I love this color.

Red.
Annie

Dear Annie,
Thank you, it’s beautiful. I’m trying to get a new batch ready, unfortunately the trees don’t want to go to sleep yet.
Love, Fall

Fall
Why are you taking so long? I just want to see you!
Annie

Dear Annie,
Summer and I agreed. Get your sweater ready, I’ll be there tomorrow.
Affectionately, Fall

Dear Winter
Where ARE you? I want snowballs and cocoa and Christmas! I miss you SO MUCH!
Love Annie

  1. What an unique structure, great voice, and fun concept. Love this line: “Pardon the rain, it made them cry.” Perfect ending and true to your MC’s character. So much fun! Good job and good luck!

      1. I missed the calendar you created. Wow, so creative! This could definitely be a PB. Have you read, Dear Earth… from Your Friends in Room 5? That could be a mentor text. You have an opportunity to add a nonfiction layer with some facts weaved in about summer and fall.
