I am still amazed at how the art of writing with a pen or pencil is slowly dying away. When I was challenged by a good friend to write a letter and mail it, I realized that the only time I use a pen and paper is when I am writing my stories. I’m surprised I don’t send my friends and family a handwritten letter or post card.
When was the last time you actually wrote a letter or note to a friend and mailed it out?
With technology being readily available to all of us, we are taking the easy way out by sending text messages, emails or Facebook messages. I think we need to keep our writing skills sharp by challenging ourselves. Seriously, I remember the day I could not wait to begin writing in script because I knew I would have the best handwriting. There’s hope for me yet, I am going to buy some nice paper and a few good pens and I’m going to begin to write the old-fashioned way….with pen and paper.
Life is good….let’s write it down!
