Here in Northcentral Texas, we’re having a rainy Sunday…perfect weather for writing letters on this second day of National Card and Letter Writing Month!
Many avid letter writers are encouraging everyone to write a letter every day this month. While that might not be feasible for everyone, it’s a great time to make the effort to send out some mail.
If you are new to letter writing – or even if you’ve been writing letters for a long time but you’re in a rut right now – you may be wondering just who you should write letters to. Here are a few suggestions about who you can write to in celebration of NCALWM:
- Family members – Parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles…write to them all!
- Old friends who live far away
- Former teachers who influenced your life
- The editor of your local newspaper…share an opinion about something in your community
- Your government representatives – tell them what kind of a job you think they’re doing in office
- Strangers. Take a cue from the founder of The World Needs More Love Letters and write letters to strangers that you leave in public places, such as buses, libraries, shops, park benches, etc.
Now, go find a pen (or pencil) and some paper and start writing that letter!
