Have you ever wanted to write a thank-you note and suffered writer's block? Considered penning a passionate letter to your beloved, but had no idea where to begin? Needed to send a sympathy message, but couldn't find the right words? Fear not. Professional letter writer Samara O'Shea is here to spark your creativity and answer all your letter-writing questions in this charming guide.For the Love of Letters is an anecdotal primer on letter writing, with tips on how to write all types of notes: love letters, break-up letters, apology letters, thank-you letters, erotic letters (oh yes!), and more. It's filled with moving, funny, and embarrassing stories about letters Samara has written and received, including an apology from a guy who addressed her by the wrong name, a good-riddance e-mail to a capricious boyfriend, and multiple apology letters after getting fired from an internship at O: The Oprah Magazine. With a fresh, contemporary approach, Samara weighs in on appropriate methods for every situation--for example, when to handwrite, type, or e-mail (yes, e-mail) your letter. There is also a fascinating collection of engaging personal letters written by historical and literary icons such as Marie Antoinette, Beethoven, Edgar Allan Poe, Susan B. Anthony, and Emily Post.For the Love of Letters will show anyone who has ever shuddered at the idea of sitting down and putting pen to paper--or fingertips to keyboard--how to craft persuasive, interesting, and memorable letters.

My valentines are finished, and will be in the mail Monday. This was my #retro activity for #litsycrafters too. Simple, folded valentines with wax seals.

#Litsylove @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Just a heads up my friends: Canada Post has put a list on their website of countries they can no longer deliver mail to. Luckily USA and UK (Where most of my penpals are) are not yet affected. Check your postal sites before sending a letter so you can be sure it gets there! 💝

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Great! Thank you! I‘ll check! Love the photo! 3y

Of COURSE I would sign up for the #litsypenpals!!! I love writing letters.
Interesting fun fact abt me (maybe?): I vowed to write a letter every day of 2012. It might not have been every freakin' day but I was close and ended up sending over 500 pieces of "fun" snail mail that year. ?

BkClubCare I guess I should tag @steverogers while I am in this excited phase... 😜 6y
