Haven't seen your best friends all summer? Give them all the updates of your summer adventures in a handwritten letter.
Your social media posts are shared with everyone, and can be impersonal.
But a letter that gives them more detail on your adventures lends an even more personal touch.
Get out some of your favorite stationary (or even just a blank sheet of paper) and fill the page with entertaining stories from your summer.
Not sure what to write? Here are some prompts that can help get your creative juices flowing.
Recount your trips, whether down the street or far across the country
Talk about fun events or activities you did in the great outdoors or even your own home
Share a funny story or experience
Invite your friend to hang out to catch up further
Bring your stories to life with vibrant color ink. Adding some color to your writing can make it pop and give your letter some added character.
Paper Mate® InkJoy® Gel pens have 14 vivid colors to choose from, which are perfect to highlight parts of your stories or to reflect your mood.
Remember there's no wrong way to send a letter – just write from the heart. It's the next best thing to showing up at their door!
