Earlier this month, I received a handwritten letter from my pal Katy. We’ve known each other online for nearly two decades, ever since LiveJournal was the dominant blogging site.

However, this letter was one of the few times our friendship has seeped into the real world. We haven’t even spoken by phone before. I think our last piece of written correspondence was when I surprised her by sending a birthday card to a radio station where she volunteered.

This month’s letter was actually the second one she’d sent recently. The first went AWOL en route from Wales – and has never turned up.

I occasionally speak here about the enjoyment I gain from writing by hand. I keep a particular style of notebook with perforated A5 pages, plus several blue pens of the same type so I can carry on if one of them runs out. Even when I’m working on a non-handwritten project, the first draft is usually done in pencil and only transferred to a computer at the second stage.

I’ll reply to Katy when I have the opportunity. She’s given me eight optional questions to think about, but I reckon I have an answer for each one.

  1. I was glad that you received it second time lucky ;P The last one I think was maybe about a year or
    two years or so ago? I forget now but I wonder how the two letters differed or were the same? Or where it is now and if it could show up in years to come? lol. I remember the card sent to the radio station, that was fun and I too like to carry a notepad and pen everywhere with at least a couple of pens πŸ™‚ No pressure to reply but happy to try penpals over a way to keep in touch, if you fancy it πŸ™‚
