What love letter would you write…

A report this week says that writing love letters is a dying art. Yet we all still yearn to receive one…

The survey was performed online by the National Trust, with over 2,500 adults taking part. The survey revealed that 63% admitted never writing even a small love note, with only 1 in 5 admitting to writing a love poem. 69% however, said they expressed their affection through a text message or e-mail. The research shows that the creativity that a traditional letter requires, is being replaced with a more efficient, quick and less troublesome means. Interesting to think then that the person who takes their time and crafts something more romantic and considered, instead of under 140 characters (although this survey suggests even that’s too long) can make a real impact.

So, as its valentines day on Sunday how about a little challenge. Firstly, write a letter to someone you love… a letter…not a tweet or a text … a letter. Secondly, what if you were able to write a love letter to the cause or charity you care most about. What would that be like? What would you say? How would you say it? And if you work for a cause or charity, what would a love letter to your donors look like, what would you say to them, how could you express your love and appreciation…..

  1. Keep the letters sincere, honest and straight from the heart. If the letters contain honest feelings then they are bound to make an impact.

      Absolutely true – impact comes from honesty and the ability to convey that in writing. Thanks for your comments.
