Pre-PS: I did this a few months ago and it was a blast. Let’s do it again! But it all ends Sunday 5/15 at 11:59PM CST!
When is the last time you received a real letter from a friend in the mail?
2 weeks ago? 2 months ago? 2 years ago? 2 decades ago?
Even our birthday greetings have veered from pre-fab physical cards in the mail to pre-fab emails to pre-fab Facebook thumbs.
I want to write you a letter.
I will put pen to paper, put the paper in an envelope, place a stamp on it and send it to you.
Why am I doing this?
A few years ago, I wrote the first draft of my novel by hand in a spiral notebook I bought from the drugstore.
After that, I had more inspiration, more flow and less excuses about my writing. Then, I wrote my next novel by hand as well. I felt connected to my words and my characters in a new way.
I’d like to connect with you, too by sending you a handwritten letter. Because of demand (and my sanity!), there’s only a certain number of letters I can do (See the 3 different topics below).
I solemnly swear to try and write in legible handwriting (though I’m pretty bad). I also solemnly swear to try and respond in a timely manner after you sign up. The letter will be a few hundred words, but it could be a little longer, could be a little shorter, we’ll see how it goes.
Also, while you wait for my letter to arrive, you can skim, peruse and read some of my fiction and creative non-fiction ebooks, plus some never-before-published pieces. I’ve put those into some different options.
Because I have a job, family and other stuff to do (I know right) plus writing the ACTUAL letters, this will only be through Sunday 5/15 at 11:59pm CST.
So…would you like a letter from me?
