Writing Prompt: Handwriting

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.


I love nothing more than hand written letters. I’ve always wanted to find a pen pal whom I can write snail mail letters to, to get the feel of what it was like to anticipate a response, rather than email, text or instant message that provides real time conversation.

Knowing a letter is in a person’s handwriting feels more personal. It’s as though I am reading a piece of their soul. They took time to engage with the paper, prepare the envelope, lick and apply the stamp and take the letter to the post office. There is something beautiful about this process.

If anyone ever wanted to correspond with me via snail mail, all they need do is say the word.
