I struggle with this.
I can have a hard time writing a short note to someone I KNOW, let alone to a yet-to-be-assigned invisible partner.
I end up writing comments about the weather.
Thankfully, Mary at Uncustomary Art posted a wonderful list of 50 things to tell your penpal on her blog.
here are a few of her ideas:
- people you'd invite to a celebrity dinner
- things you've dressed up as for past Halloweens
- what you'd put in a time capsule
I love this list.
Once in desperation, I wrote a list of the contents of my glove compartment on the back of a postcard. Mandy later told me it was one of her favorite messages ever.
I for one am going to print out Mary's list and hang it on my bulletin board.
