Wishes and Messages: Helpful tips on how to write letters
Writing a heartfelt letter can sometimes be difficult because you can’t translate the thoughts in your head into words. If you’re someone who has trouble writing letters, don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place!
Here at Wishes and Messages, you’ll find various materials that can help you improve your writing. From classic quotes to wishes and messages, you’ll find everything that you need here and incorporate them into your way of writing.
In this blog, we plan to help you become better at writing by sharing some helpful tips. If you’re eager to learn more, here’s everything you need to know:
Think of what you want to say
Before you start writing anything on your greeting card, make sure to gather your thoughts first. This will help you translate them into words more efficiently. You can neatly go through them point by point without having to backtrack in the middle of writing. Gathering your thoughts beforehand will also help you write more clearly and concisely.
Open it up nicely
The beginning is important because it will instantly hook the recipient into reading the whole letter. A pleasant way to start is by simply writing words such as hello, hi, dear, etc. After that, you can continue writing the entire greeting and it’s up to you whether or not you want to immediately proceed to the message or you want to write other things in the middle.
Try to keep it concise
With other types of letters, it would be best to get straight to the point. For example, birthday greetings tend to be better if you would immediately open up with your greetings before proceeding with your long message.
Make it personal
One of the most helpful tips that we can give you is to be more creative. Make it more personal and put your heart into every word that you write in the letter. This sets it apart from other greeting cards with generic messages because, with a personalized letter, it would feel like you’re directly talking to the recipient.
Be more creative
The great thing about writing personalized letters is that you can let your creative side out. A great example of this is in birthday greetings. Instead of writing the usual ‘Happy Birthday’, you can make it more creative by mixing it up a little and trying these phrases:
- Enjoy your special day!
- Let’s go out and celebrate!
- As you enter another year, let’s create more memories together!
- Enjoy another year on Earth! Save me a slice, will you?
- Hope your day is as special as you are!
Try looking back on special moments
If you’re close with that person, you can insert a special moment that you share dearly with each other so they can look back on it when they receive the letter. This can be a time when you two couldn’t stop laughing, an embarrassing moment, a life learning event or anything under the sun. Additionally, this gesture makes the recipient feel special because they would know that you still remember those special moments.
These are some of the helpful tips that you can use to your advantage when writing letters. It may not seem much at first but they can improve your greetings and letters once you try incorporating them into your writing.
