When was the last time you wrote a personal letter to someone? Honestly,I can't remember...it must be more than 30 years ago when I was at the university. How about you?
What I meant by writing here is when I get a piece of paper(or a notebook) and start writing using my pen(or nowadays ballpen).Typing on the keyboard is just pressing a button and an alphabet comes out in a size and font which one has selected.The only thing personal is the content. What about writing using pen and paper?When I do write,I am actually drawing an alphabet as well as the words as I go along.No standard size and font to follow.It is all mine all the way...
Which is more meaningful to someone who receives a thank you note personally hand-written compared to an email or sms(text message)?
By the way, there is a growing group of us Malaysians who still enjoy writing with their pen and paper as reported by a bookshop which sells moleskine notebook.Most of us don't write letters anymore, but some of us do write journals and draw some sketches..
