    Like On Ep!

    One of the best things about EP is that you can communicate directly with people and they, if they choose, can reply directly in a matter of seconds.  It's great!  You can go from "who are you?" to instant friendship if everything clicks.  What an idea!

    A Fading Artform

    I, too, love writing letters. It's unfortunate that because of technology and other social changes, letter-writing is near obsolete. There's something romantic about receiving letters that were handwritten, plus there's so much more you can do with an actual paper letter than an...

    Writing Letters Is Fun

    I love writing letters. I have friends who moved away to other cities and the best way of communication with them is through letters. Though I do enjoy hand-written letters, I prefer e-mail instead. Faster and cheaper. The process is pretty easy for me, I just open Word and start...

    The Joy of Letters

    I left several good dear friends behind when I moved away. One friend asked for a handwritten letter from me and so it began.  I realized how it made me feel to receive letters and started sending them to others. Now I get creative with my letters. It brings me joy knowing...

    I feel like writing a letter is such an intimidate thing now. So involved and time consuming. I like writing letters because it's a way for someone else to have something of.

    I think writing things down lets you really express your true feelings, well at least for me. Cause no arguing comes of it and the wrong words don't blabber out of your mouth.
