Before email came into our lives, letters reigned: postcards, stationery, perfume-scented paper…and stamps! Glorious, interesting stamps!
And then, there was the style and “voice” of a loved one’s handwriting…a personal touch. How great did it feel to know that someone held a letter in his/her own flesh-and-blood hand, then sent it into your hand?
Don’t get us wrong; we love how easy and efficient email has made life for writers! But, we miss letters too. Author Mary Robinette Kowal has launched a Month of Letters Challenge, encouraging writers to mail one letter, postcard, or note per day this month.
QUESTION: What do you think? Do you love letters? Do you ever send letters by mail anymore? Will you participate in the Letter Writing Challenge?
