Mail Tag

I have been tagged by Hannah of Rose Tinted Crafting to answer the following questions about my written correspondence. So:

Do you exchange letters? 

Yes, I do. How did you know?

If so, how long have you been doing it, if not, have you exchanged letters before? 
I have started to exchange letters when I was 11 years old (28 years ago? Really??).

Do you remember who was your first correspondent? 
Yes, I do. I remember her perfectly, because she is still my regular correspondent.

Why did you start exchanging letters? 
I think I just thought it would be fun... Why, I was 11 years old!

Have you thought about stopping exchanging letters? 
Why would I do something like that? I write less letters when I am busier, of course. Or I write just postcards when life is hectic. But... stopping? It seems impossible: writing letters is not a hobby. It is a way of life; a way of taking a walk on the slow side.

What is the maximum of correspondents you had?
There are people who writes often, there are people who writes once in a while, even once a year... I am not able to count them.

Do you prefer handwritten or typed letters?

Most of my sent letters are handwritten, and also most of the letters I receive. But that is up to the sender. Everyone needs to feel comfortable when writing. I have only a rule in letterwriting: I answer every letter I receive.

How do you define the sensation of receiving a letter? 
Like this?

Do you prefer to write or receive letters?
This is a very difficult question... Anyway: I must send a letter in order to get a letter, mustn't I?

Write a handwritten message to your pen pals/correspondents.
I did. I sent it through snail mail. Sorry: messages are private!

I am not very into mail tags (this is my very first). I am not sure who would like to answer these questions. So, please: feel free to join. Let me know if you do!

  2. Apologies Eva for taking this long to look at your mail tag answers. Thank you so much for joining in on the mail tag, it is lovely to know a little bit more about your written correspondence.
