Writing a love letter is an art that can easily be labeled in the endangered category. With the coming of age of the Internet and mobile services, lovers hardly depend on the postal system or other people to deliver their message of love. But guys, believe me when I say that they still hold tremendous appeal to the love-sick heart. So if you want to earn those much-desired brownie points from your sweetheart, write a love letter and send it across. If you write a good one, you can only imagine the effects it will have. Here’s how to get started.
The mode and the medium is of utmost importance. Choose a nice pen and a classy color of ink. Keep those fancy pink and green colors for Christmas decorations. Get yourself a nice paper. No, that torn sheet of your favorite note-book is not applicable. When you begin to write, make sure you have already formed the rough draft in your mind. If you are the type who stumble on every word and are prone to heavy editing, write it on a separate sheet of paper first. If you write a wrong word while drafting the final copy, draw a line through the word lightly. Don’t paint the scratched word and make the whole thing look miserable.
The love letter should ideally be the spontaneous flow of your lovelorn heart. In the process of writing it if you fall short of ideas, wait for the flow to come back to you. Writing about inane stuff to fill out the pages is a bad idea. Your love would really not like to know about the fight you had with the cab driver or how you were duped into having an overpriced drink. Be relevant and maintain a sort of agenda. That way you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Begin and end with a tender, loving address to your beloved. I’d suggest you cut out any corny ideas. So, get cracking and let me know the effects!
