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?

  • 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.

    One of the most successful French movies of all time. I can see why. (****)

  • : Involuntary

    Involuntary
    Swedish film that cleverly looks at group dynamics and how they influence the actions of the individual. Sort of cinema verite in style, the shots of often framed as if you are a voyeur looking on. (****)
