I am occasionally inspired to some sort of action by letters I receive. My purchase of "The Art of the Handwritten Note" by Margaret Shepherd was inspired by fellow blogger and letter writer, Lennart Wennberg. I also purchased another of Ms. Shepherd's books, "The Art of the Personal Letter." I am now a fan of Margaret Shepherd and recommend her books to you.
Just the other day I received a letter from Juanita from South Africa. You can visit her blog at www.therecanbeonlyjuan.com. She mentioned belonging to the Letter Writers Alliance and I wondered why I had never joined myself. I soon put my wondering to rest and mailed $3 and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to P.O. Box 221168 Chicago, IL 60622. I will soon have a membership card and access to exclusive member items as well as more penpals. I encourage those interested in meeting people through letters to visit the LWA webpage.
Thank you Juanita for the inspiration. I look forward to the fun of more letters from you and the new pen friends I may find through Letter Writers Alliance. My response to you will soon be on its way!
