When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone?

No – not an email. Not jotted a couple words in a card. Sat down, with a pen and paper, and WROTE a letter?

That long, eh?

I’m guilty too – the art of letter-writing has diminished, if not disappeared, over the past years – and decades.

Well, this week (January 8-14) is Universal Letter Writing Week. People are encouraged to put down their electronic devices and hand write letters to folks.

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE getting letters in the mail – especially if they’re handwritten. It makes me feel treasured that someone would take the time to do that, when an email or text would be much easier. You too?

Of course, it has been a LONG time since I actually hand-wrote a letter to anyone. But that is going to change. Before the next week is up, I plan to handwrite a letter to someone (who? I dunno. But watch your mailbox LOL). I’m a writer, after all.

How about you? Are you joining me?
