Day 3 Of The #sendcardsspreadlove Challenge

Week 1 Challenge: Thinking of You

The challenge this week is to send a card to someone you’ve been thinking of (you’ll make their day, I promise!) and the prize is your choice of one of the single curated collections (themed and special collections excluded). To be eligible, share your week 1 challenge card and/or note on IG (remember to follow us) or in the Facebook group. Be sure to tag @prettybypost and use the #sendcardsspreadlove hashtag. Deadline is April 11th.

Besides not knowing who to send a card to or why (but now you have a BIG list of reasons of who and what to write, so we can check that off as D-O-N-E.), the next biggest obstacle I hear the most is not knowing what to write.

So, I’ve compiled a list of resources for you on what to say when writer’s block hits. And don’t feel bad, it happens to the best of writers!

To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.” ~ Phyllis Theroux

Resources On What to Write

Resources On What To Write

Take this advice from Brett McKay from for day 3 of the #sendcardsspreadlove challenge: “Write the way you would talk. A letter is but talk on paper. Just as you would in real life, adjust the style and formality depending on your intimacy with the recipient. If it’s a business contact, maintain a more formal tone. If it’s your girlfriend or an old buddy, be as informal, intimate, and breezy as you would be if they were with you in person. Your goal is to have your voice reading your letter to them in their head. It’s much easier to create that effect if you write how you actually talk. Just as you don’t overthink when you talk, don’t overthink when you write a letter.”
