Informal Letter Writing

The skills of personal letter writing have been heavily eroded by other, more modern forms of communication, but social correspondence still remains a very intimate form of letter writing and provides far more opportunity for considered reflection than a telephone call and far more opportunity for description than an email.

A letter can show you at your best as well as giving you the means to express yourself in a much more sensitive way than would be possible with speech. Despite this intimacy, however, presentation is still very important – even if you are writing to a friend or relative.
