A reminder to me: It’s always nice to see that, by sending in a request to More Love Letters, someone is leading the charge to help these letters’ recipients.
Another lesson: There is always a quote available to kickstart any note or letter I’m writing. Yet another: I have fun trying to lighten things up a bit. One of my daily calendars usually comes through…
A reminder from this latest foray: Aaaah, the power of imperfectionism. On clear display here. “It’s the thought that counts” could never be more applicable.
But this friend had recently lost her partner of 50+ years and I wanted to follow up our phone visit with something in the mail. Plus, she–an SPCA volunteer and greyhound rescuer–loves dogs. Not sure what she thinks of left-handers, however…
Another reminder: Dog images just plain work for me. And our pets have to earn their keep somehow, right?
Yet another reminder…4 x 6 photos double as postcards quite nicely. [though I’m generally too lazy to dig for a postcard stamp, so I end up slapping on a first-class and get it sent!]
Am hoping the card spurs a little interest and action.
Thanks for visiting. I always appreciate the folks who press the ‘Like’ button to let me know the post arrived safely.
I am always happy to steer you to letter-writing destinations and resources on the Web. Just let me know what you need.
Some folks have written complete books on item #1.
Sometimes that longer word just does the work much more effectively.
We’ve all heard about that ‘filthy first draft’ [I prefer the alliterative version.]. But knowing there is a massive clean-up operation ahead often steers me anywhere but there.
The best piece of advice came at the end: “use the wisdom that works for you and discard the rest.”
Keep putting words on the page! Unless, of course, it’s one of your off-days. Or you don’t feel like ‘showing, not telling’. Or you prefer to simply ‘not edit” period/ever/I’ll smack anyone who suggests it!’ vs. ‘edit-as-you-go to’!
