We get it: texting and social media has given writing the back seat. But when's the last time you wrote a letter? Like a real, pour-your-heart-out, leave-all-emotions-on-the-page kind of letter?
Been a while?
Maybe you've never even written one before. Letters are special because, unlike a typical conversation where people talk back and forth, when you write a letter you get to say everything you want before getting a reply. There are two rules to writing a letter: first, you should always address it to someone or something; and second, own it! Sign your letters; otherwise anyone could've written it.
HOW IT WORKS
