Do you write letters? Is it a dying art?

I have wrote one in the past 2 months and it was to my friend who is an older lady. I think I wouldn't write at all if I didn't write to her.

  • I hope not because I love to write, I write letters to friends and family members and i write stories for my kids, I write in a journal and I write letters to God. I sure hope it's not a dying art. My daughter likes to write too so at least it won't be a dying art in my family.

  • I have not wrote letters in years. I always send an email or ecard. I received a bday card from my cousin the other day, and want to send her back a thank you card, but instead posted on her FB wall a thank you.

  • I, too, write 'letters' mostly to my older friends/relatives. But I must admit, I write on the computer (sometime insert a photo or two) and print it out to send. If they had email, I would most likely use that instead. Sad to say, but true. :-\
