For the month of March, each day I am writing and posting a slice of my life, hosted by Two Writing Teachers.
Slice of Life Challenge #21 Day 19:
Last Minute Request

"Of course! What would you like me to highlight? When is it due?" I respond.

"I'll do my best," I reply, wondering how I will find the time to write a letter today.
She's a hard-working, bright student I adore. She's had more challenges before turning eighteen than most people should have in a lifetime. She needs this scholarship to attend post-secondary school. She needs all the help she can get. I needed to figure out how to write it in time for her. It was a request I could not turn down.
In between Parent Teacher Conference Google Meets last night, I pounded out her recommendation letter.
letter request. I accept./
"It's due tomorrow."
