“A letter writing is about getting your message out.
When you are the one sending the letter, it is important to write it with emotion and care.”
That’s how one letter writer in New York City summed up her process, and it’s the advice that she gave to her sister in a letter writing article for her sister’s magazine, Women’s Wear Daily.
In the article, which she wrote for the magazine’s sister publication, Glamour, Ms. Shih told her sister, “I can only hope you can write this letter with a sense of humor and a sense that you care about what you write.”
The writer wrote about her sister as an example of a writer who doesn’t have to take the time to prepare a lengthy and complicated letter, but writes it anyway.
“I wish I could tell you that my sister is my inspiration,” Ms. Boudreau wrote.
“It is her writing that I admire most.”
She also said that she’d love to hear from women who’ve struggled with writing letters.
“The truth is, I write letters all the time, but when I write a letter, I can never be sure I’m doing the right thing,” Ms, Boudares wrote.
She told Glamor that writing a letter is “an easy thing to do,” and added, “It’s a little bit like playing a sport, it’s like hitting a home run.”
As for what her sister said about her writing process, Ms Shih said she thought it was a “simple, clear-cut, elegant letter.”
“I just don’t think I could have done that without her,” she said.
She said her sister was always willing to share advice and advice.
“She really listened to my thoughts and I think she loved it.”
