I miss the more intimate nature of handwritten letters/card etc too. What amazes me is how far my handwriting motor skills have fallen over the last ten years and how tired my hands get when I write. These days, my writing looks like that of a drunken, epileptic ape. Secondly, I did a course at work recently where the exam had to be handwritten. I cramped up within about 10 minutes, it was ridiclous. Apart from the occasional form/birthday card, I haven't written anything by hand for years.

I'm impressed! After donkeys' years of typing everything and handwriting as little as possible, like many people I now type much faster than I write by hand.

I've recently started to learn Greek; that means a whole new alphabet to learn and lots of handwriting. Oh, it's so hard! I hope you have lots of pleasure though. It really is a treat getting hand-written letter through the door!

Thank you for my postcard, Scott. My handwritten reply to you is even now in a Royal Mail van somewhere

This is a wonderful idea! I started a Facebook fanpage called "Save the U.S. Postal Service by Writing More Letters." There are many like-minded people out there. Best of luck with your project!

Thank you for my ladybird winter postcard, off we go to spot the animals!

What a good idea. All the best with it. You can certainly drop me a line whenever.

I wish I had found this sooner! I totally would have talent you up on this! I'm part of PostCrossing and in the process of joining the Letter Writers Alliance. I love writing letters and they usually end up long winded, but that's half the fun (next to picking out stationary and stamps). Anyway, I think this was an awesome idea. How did it turn out for you?

One You May Have Missed

  • Ian Holding: Unfeeling

    Ian Holding: Unfeeling
    Unforgettable novel told from the point of view of the son of a white Zimbabwean farmer whose land is reclaimed by an armed mob. I thought it was an oustanding debut and am surprised the author didn't go on to bigger and better things.

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Good fun, I thought. Not the best film in the world but a cut above the usual superhero stuff. (****)

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    Atomised
    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
