8th February – I Sent You This … penguin?
In this session, we began by comparing formal letter writing with the less formal approach of sending text messages and using social media generally.
Here’s a letter, starting off one way, and finishing the other.
I am writing to express my total astonishment at the vast difference between formal letter writing and the composition of a simple text message.
I could write at length about it but, TBH, it might produce a TL;DR response and it certainly would not have you ROFL.
ICYMI, capital letters seem to imply one is shouting and accurate punctuation suggests the writer is in a state of some considerable agitation but NVM, just LMK if yer doin OK.
Yours sincerely, GTG!!!
I sent you this …
Why would you send a letter?
When would a postcard be more appropriate?
What do you say in a text?
How do you post magic?
All these questions, and more, were explored in Dean’s ‘I sent you this …’ writing activity.
