I know, once again I haven’t been very active. But I been working on something really interesting! So I haven’t been laying around all lazy doing nothing.
I been both working on my Bullet journal, I’m rather happy so far! I don’t have the right stickers or decoration to make it work for my theme. But I’m looking into it. So I wont share any pictures yet. You can have a smaller sneak peak if you follow my Instagram at: My Blog instagram
Then I been writing tons of short stories, erotic ones (that’s the one I’m writing. I know the genre can be rather embarrassing for some to read about or talk about but I sure love it). I’m working up a short stories bank so I later this autumn can publish one a week on amazon. I’m also trying to make the book cover match so you can tell it’s from the same author.
Lastly I came to the conclusion I wanted to meet new people and I wanted to be more creative. So I came across a Swedish Instagramer who do snail mails, very decorated once. And she sends (depending on the person she is sending to) different goodies (stickers, bookmarks, cards, photos, washi tapes etc.) And of course writes long letters.
When I was younger I did have a pen pal. Or a couple I think but never more than one at the time. But they all stopped replying. I’m a person who loves words! I’m very good with words, which is also why I enjoy writing and coming up with stories. I can’t say I am as good in English or other languages as in Swedish of course. But I can write LONG letters.
So I think the once I had, who did it more for fun, just got sick of all the reading and me trying to be very extra and creative. It isn’t always a good thing I realized. Fail after fail I couldn’t be bothersome to try again so i put it on hold and just decided I was special and it would be hard to find someone as in love with handwritten letters and the charm of getting more things than bills. (this was of course on the time when internet wasn’t such a big thing).
Today there is tons on websites and not to speak of Facebook groups and Instagram hashtags. It’s so easy to find like minded people no matter what interest you have.
But All in all I found four girls roughly my age that I will start sending letters to. Three of them live in U.S.A. and the fourth one is from Japan. I haven’t asked them yet if they are okey with me posting pictures of their letters or talking about their names. So I will wait to tell you more about them.
I will start with the three people from U.S.A and send them a letter and the girl from Japan was very eager to start and wanted to go first. I’m really excited about this and I hope I can share some lovely things. I will of course not show the actual letters considering its a friendship between us. But if they are as extra as me they might paint the letters and decorate it pretty.
Do you have a pen pal or do you want to have one?
Do you enjoy getting cards or do you prefer everything digital?
