I just heard word that it's Universal Letter Writing Week (8 - 14 Jan) as promoted by the International Society of Friendship and Goodwill. I've been looking for a letter writing excuse all year. That's right, for the nine days since making my new year's resolution to learn calligraphy and four days since buying a comprehensively nibbed calligraphy pen set, I have been yearning to get down and inky with my comms.
On that note, I heartily invite you to answer one question and go in the running to receive one of five letters -- all of which I will hand write personally.
Just let us know how you feel when you receive an old-school letter in the post. I don't mean run-of-the-mill birthday, celebration, or festive season cards. I'm talking about the unexpected, uniquely crafted, quietly unassuming but startling refreshing handwritten letter.
