Typical of me What kind of writer am I?
Are you the dynamic type who writes quickly and spontaneously in short, crisp sentences? Or are you a creative person who likes to tell imaginative, lively stories and structure your letters or cards lovingly with pretty decorations? It doesn’t matter which applies to you – keep writing. Writing is a creative activity which you yourself can influence. For example with a relaxed setting or the right materials. A few tricks can help you with your preparation.
Where do I most like to write?
Think about what kind of setting gets you in the mood for writing: in the privacy of your home, your favourite café or under the shade of a tree in a city park? Take inspiration from your environment.
When and where do I have ideas?
At what time of the day are you inspired? In what place? In what mood? Listening to which music?
What paper should I choose?
What kind of paper do you like for your letters? White, coloured, lined or squared? The choice of matching envelope or a nice stamp is also part of the preparation process. You are sure to find a suitable stamp at postshop.ch.
Which writing tool is right for my letter?
Pencil, pen, fountain pen or fineliner: what feels best in your hand? What do you feel most comfortable with? Which of them produces your finest writing? Which pen is appropriate for your letter?
Take a little time to answer these questions for yourself. Create the ideal ambience for you and prepare everything in advance, so that you can give free rein to your thoughts and focus fully on your writing. Try different places until you find the perfect one for you. Be inspired by the different types of paper in the stationery shop or department. Find the right pen. This will make writing fun, and it will become very easy to find the right words.
