So, who cares? I did 2 days ago. I found myself in a panic. My printer broke and I needed to print 2 very important letters finished to go out with some photographs. The first day I just did nothing but put the work on hold, I went and looked at printers and realized I didn't know what I wanted. I came home, emailed the letter's to my husband so he could print them. Ahhh Problem solved. Except, he left town for the week and didn't leave them.
Well, back to the old K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid light bulb moment. Could I actually pick up a pen and write on that paper? I couldn't believe how long I sat here wondering that. Should I? shouldn't I? Maybe someone won't think they are very important if it is a handwritten letter without my letterhead above.
Well, I decided it was worse to make these 2 people wait any longer on their pieces because I didn't have a "printer." I grabbed my pen, looked at the prewritten letter on my screen and started to copy it. Then I realized, it's handwritten and some thoughts were just coming naturally, like the pen free flow moving in my hand. WOW I could actually write a letter.
My handwriting is not the best. But I reflected on how many letters my Grammy used to write to people long before computers, how much I cherish the handwritten letters I still have of people that are no longer here.
If you haven't written in a long time you may get writer's cramp;) Try something small first. You don't have to be FANCY, but you could get a fancy written card and put your own handwritten message inside.
