Letter-writing is one of my favorite modes of correspondence. It’s not the most convenient way of telling something to someone - it’s just above telegrams and smoke signals. I daresay most people believe it to be outmoded, old-fashioned, and altogether obsolete. I disagree! I think it’s one of the best ways to communicate - and here’s why I love it.
Last April does not seem like it was a year ago, and yet, here we are! I've been looking forward to Write_On since I sent off my final campaign letter on April 30. I have sent plenty of letters since then but there was a real air of excitement throughout the month of April as I sent off letters and anticipated replies in my mailbox. Because it's a simple joy to receive a handwritten letter in your mailbox. This simple joy is becoming less and less common and it's a shame to see a perfectly good simple joy slip into obscurity, especially when beautiful stamps, pretty paper products, and the postal service still exist.
Writing 30 letters was harder than I thought. My can-do attitude started fading around the 15th but each time I pushed myself to write a letter, I was met with a feeling of accomplishment that carried me through to the next day.
