The Art Of Writing Letters In The Digital Age

In this age where technology is nothing but the norm, writing letters has been taken for granted. However, old-fashioned mail is a fun and exciting way to keep in touch. Let me tell you why.

It is a form of art

A letter is not just another way of communication, rather it is considered a form of art.

Unlike email and texts, letters bring a certain emotion. It becomes tangible evidence that someone put effort into expressing their feelings and thoughts to you.

There is a possibility that when we use those modes of communication, the recipient will misunderstand what we are trying to convey.

When you receive a letter, it is much more like receiving a personal gift from someone. You are able to see a part of the sender through their handwriting thus it makes you feel that they are just beside you.

Writing a letter may be a bit tricky for people in the digital age since we got used to instant messages, texts and emails. However, it is still nice to get away from the norms once in a while and writing letters is one way to do that.
