Hey there! Plume here, with a review! I think I reviewed one of your pieces on this website before, and I remember enjoying it, so here I am again!
I really enjoyed this letter! Once again, you've delivered with a very believable and engaging letter with a great writer's voice that sells the isolated storyline that is both normal and a little odd. I really enjoy this brand of writing, and I hope you keep publishing these letters! They're quite enjoyable for little bits of writing to read.
One thing I really enjoyed was how well the storyline and writing voice blended together. I think your voice has this sort of cut-and-dry humor and personality that makes it very reminiscent of some of the best middle grade books I used to read. When that meshes with the casual magic of this world (like how you combine normal parental interactions with the fact that the narrator's mother is a witch, or how nonchalantly you describe the possession of Aidan's mom) it makes the letter super engaging to read. I also enjoyed the humor in this story specifically; I too have spent long hours trying to draw something only to have it turn out nothing like I expected. The bit about cake at the end was also very funny. I am curious, though; will we ever find out why Skipper/Carma (they sign their letters as Skipper but their mom calls them Carma... is Skipper a nickname?) is writing to their father? Where is he?
His mom Daffodil (well, actually Annella but nobody calls her that) got *poof* possessed, but not by devils, LATIN PROVERBS.
I think that this line would flow better if you put another "by" in front of "Latin proverbs." I really did enjoy that inventiveness, though. It's one of those moments where those little bits of genius shine through.
I had no idea what she wanted from me, but I must have looked really boring and inexpressible coz the next very day she told Ma how really boring and inexpressible I looked.
I absolutely adored this line. It made me snort when I first read it. The humor is just so dry and witty, it's absolutely amazing.
Overall: nice work!! I really enjoyed reading this letter. You've got a real talent for humor, and I'd be curious to read more letters OR a longer piece of fiction, if you have it! Until next time!!
