The Lost Art of Letters
Colleges, 12 Letters, Lost Art, Letter Writing, College Prepster, Writing Letters, Beautiful Letter, Snail Mail
The Lost Art of Letters- I vow to write at least 12 letters this year to people I love and think about all the time. I'm going to reach out and tell them more.
I love to write a letter…to create a conversation in pen begun with a thought…a loving chat from the heart. Such a lost art that must be recaptured ~ Pick up an exquisite pen and begin to think of putting your words onto real paper… instead of a text ~ xo "The Lost Art of Letters"
I’m in a love affair with a lost art. One that I hope together we can bring back.
Letter Writing a Lost Art! I’m in a love affair with a lost art.

Fletcher talks about how creating characters with realistic characteristics is important. This pin I believe it's just perfect, it describes the different point Fletcher described in the text. We have to imagine the facial expressions, how they talk, how they feel and even put a name that goes along with the characteristics of your character.

Characters for an Epic Tale

Characters for an Epic Tale - I like the idea of using this as a prompting activity for creative writing.
Would be cool to make a book with all these characters. ~~ Characters for an Epic Tale - I like the idea of using this as an adjective lesson. Provide an example for kiddos, then have them create their own using adjectival phrases to describe the characters. Don't use this one in the class tho, a few questionable types!
Fun creative writing- characters you need for an epic tale by Tom Gauld. Choose one, three, ten -- then write! #screenwriting

I have this up on my wall to remind me that all characters fit in only a few categories. Who's missing from this story? Do I need another one of those?
