I’ve been thinking a lot about my Grandfather lately. He turns 80 this week–today, actually–and is still married to my Grandmother. He and she have loved each other for a very long time. Much of their life and marriage unfolded via something we don’t really have anymore:  letters.

In this texting, tweeting, facebook-ing society, the art of getting out a piece of paper and a pen and putting thoughts into words is a little bit of a lost art. Ok, fine, it’s a lot of a lost art.

Write a letter from you or your character. If you are feeling particularly creative/ambitious, also include a reply.
