I Love Writing Letters

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 197 People

    I want a penpal from somewhere else.

    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 have a stack of letters in a corner of my

    room hidden for you. Covered in scribbled out lines and my lazy script, bent at the corners from falling asleep while writing, but filled with loving words, that one day I hope you'll find and read <3

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I used to have A LOT of pen pals

    when I was younger. Then I got lazy as the internet took over. It's just easier to send an e-mail & have them respond the same day or within a day or two compared to waiting weeks for a letter. However, I LOVE getting real mail! I miss that.
