Send your Sweetheart a Love Letter this Valentine’s Day January 31, 2013

Fellas,

 

Valentine’s Day is coming up just over a week, and we all know that for many of you, this is the first thought you’ve given to the “Big Day”.  Of course you’re going to scramble to squeak in that last minute reservation at the new hip place in town.  Of course she won’t notice that the 10pm reservation was the very last one, and only one, they had available.  She’ll also probably think the “table for two” out by the valet was their most requested and hard to get table.

 

Dinner, in a word, is “covered”.  “Done”, “taken care of”, “whadoyoumeanIhaventthoughtaboutValentinesyet?”, “I got it under control”.  Nice work!

 

However, why not go all out, and get all romantic this year.  Why not send her a letter that shows her you’ve been thinking of her.  Let her know she is the Apple of your Eye, the Jewel of your Crown, the One for You! Yeah, a Love Letter sounds great!  But let us guess, you are no Danielle Steele when it comes to wordsmithing.

 

Dont’ worry, we’ve got you covered.  iwiLetter.com provides you with many Sample Love Letters that you can choose from.  Pick the one that seems the closest to what you are trying to say to her, then edit it to make it your own.  Or, well, just send it like it is.  Let her know that your heart is her’s, and you hope for her heart to be your’s.  Let her know that your life was like a dark night before, with only a few distant stars to light it, but that she came as a blazing comet and lit it up, rising over the horizon and streaking through.


Write your Sweatheart a Love Letter today!

 

Send her a Love Letter this Valentine’s Day.  Let her know you care.  Let iwiLetter.com help, let our Sample Love Letters be the prose that guides your pen….and your evening 😉

Letters of Note May 29, 2012

Re-posted from Letters of Note’s awesome slice of the Web http://www.lettersofnote.com/2012/05/it-has-never-got-easier.html


In March of 1962, acclaimed author John Steinbeck wrote the following letter to Edith Mirrielees — a lady who, as his professor of creative writing at Stanford 40 years previous, had been an enormous influence on his development as a writer and, he later claimed, one of the few things he respected about the university.

His fantastic, insightful letter later featured in the paperback edition of Mirrielees’s book, Story Writing.


March 8, 1962


Dear Edith Mirrielees:


I am delighted that your volume Story Writing is going into a paperback edition. It will reach a far larger audience, and that is a good thing. It may not teach the reader how to write a good story, but it will surely help him to recognize one when he reads it.

Although it must be a thousand years ago that I sat in your class in story writing at Stanford, I remember the experience very clearly. I was bright-eyed and bushy-brained and prepared to absorb from you the secret formula for writing good short stories, even great short stories.

You canceled this illusion very quickly. The only way to write a good short story, you said, was to write a good short story. Only after it is written can it be taken apart to see how it was done. It is a most difficult form, you told us, and the proof lies in how very few great short stories there are in the world.

The basic rule you gave us was simple and heartbreaking. A story to be effective had to convey something from writer to reader and the power of its offering was the measure of its excellence. Outside of that, you said, there were no rules. A story could be about anything and could use any means and technique at all—so long as it was effective.

As a subhead to this rule, you maintained that it seemed to be necessary for the writer to know what he wanted to say, in short, what he was talking about. As an exercise we were to try reducing the meat of a story to one sentence, for only then could we know it well enough to enlarge it to three or six or ten thousand words.

So there went the magic formula, the secret ingredient. With no more than that you set us on the desolate lonely path of the writer. And we must have turned in some abysmally bad stories. If I had expected to be discovered in a full bloom of excellence, the grades you gave my efforts quickly disillusioned me. And if I felt unjustly criticized, the judgments of editors for many years afterwards upheld your side, not mine.

It seemed unfair. I could read a fine story and could even know how it was done, thanks to your training. Why could I not do it myself? Well, I couldn’t, and maybe it’s because no two stories dare be alike. Over the years I have written a great many stories and I still don’t know how to go about it except to write it and take my chances.

If there is a magic in story writing, and I am convinced that there is, no one has ever been able to reduce it to a recipe that can be passed from one person to another. The formula seems to lie solely in the aching urge of the writer to convey something he feels important to the reader. If the writer has that urge, he may sometimes but by no means always find the way to do it.

It is not so very hard to judge a story after it is written, but after many years, to start a story still scares me to death. I will go so far as to say that the writer who is not scared is happily unaware of the remote and tantalizing majesty of the medium.

I wonder whether you will remember one last piece of advice you gave me. It was during the exuberance of the rich and frantic twenties and I was going out into that world to try to be a writer.

You said, “It’s going to take a long time, and you haven’t any money. Maybe it would be better if you could go to Europe.”

“Why?” I asked.

“Because in Europe poverty is a misfortune, but in America it is shameful. I wonder whether or not you can stand the shame of being poor.”

It wasn’t too long afterwards that the depression came down. Then everyone was poor and it was no shame any more. And so I will never know whether or not I could have stood it. But surely you were right about one thing, Edith. It took a long time—a very long time. And it is still going on and it has never got easier. You told me it wouldn’t.


John Steinbeck

Your or You’re? March 27, 2011

Filed under: Letter writing,Sample Letters,Spelling & Punctuation — iwiLetter.com @ 1:08 am
Tags: , , ,

A frighteningly large percentage of individuals fail to understand how to use the words “you’re” and “your.” Here is a quick and dirty crash course on this common usage problem.

 

  1. Understand the proper usage of the word you need. The best way to do that is to sound it out. There is a replacement test that will tell you for certain which word will fit. Read the sentence with “you are” in place of where the “your/you’re” is intended. If it makes sense, then “you’re” would be right. If not, then “your” would fit. You could also replace “your” with “my” in the sentence. If it fits, then use “your.”
  2. Write You’re as a contraction or a combination, of the words you and are. Other examples of contractions include doesn’t” for “does not,” they’re” for “they are,” and can’t” for “cannot.”

    • “You’re a good friend” means “You are a good friend.”
    • “I don’t know what you’re talking about” means “I do not know what you are talking about.”
  3. Write your as the possessive form of you, referring to something that a person has, something that belongs to the person in question, or the person you are talking to.
    • “Is your stomach growling?”
    • Your book is on the table.”
  4. Take a look at some examples. Each of the following examples shows an incorrect use of your/you’re, and why it is incorrect.
    • “I can’t read you’re handwriting.”
      • Incorrect, because the contraction for “you are” is being used in place of the possessive form of you. I can’t read you are handwriting doesn’t make sense. It should be replaced with “your”.
    • “If your hungry, then you should probably eat something.”
      • Incorrect because there is no possession in question. this passes the replacement test. Rewriting it with “you are” fits. This should be replaced with you’re, or you are.
    • “I think your very smart.”
      • Again, incorrect. The “very smart” does not belong to the person that you are talking to — this doesn’t make any sense. Replace your with you’re, or you are.

 

Tips

  • English can be complicated, because there’s an exception to every rule. Ex.: Keep in mind that the word your will never be followed by the words the, a, or an.
  • The word your will usually not be followed by an adjective, a word that describes, when that adjective is describing the person that you are talking to. In other words, saying “Your very kind” will almost never be correct. “Your very kind” would be correct if they were describing a noun, as in “Your nice son brought me my coat.” Here, your nice is correct because nice is describing the person’s son.
  • Remember that you’re is actually a combination of two words and thus fulfills two very important roles in a sentence or clause. Because it includes both a pronoun and a verb, you’re will always be the subject and at least part of the verb of any clause in which it appears.
  • Try replacing “your” or “you’re” with “you are” if you are unsure which to use. If the sentence makes sense, use “you’re.” Remember that only “you’re” is a contraction. The apostrophe in “you’re” signifies the omission of the letter “a.” If the sentence does not make sense, you will know to use “your.”
  • For example:
    • “You’re a good writer!” and “You are” a good writer!” “You are” makes sense in this sentence, so you can use “you’re.”
    • “I cannot read you’re handwriting.” and “I cannot read you are handwriting.” “You are” does not make sense in this sentence, so you should use “your.”
  • Try not to think that proper writing is strictly “academic”. It makes you appear more intelligent. More importantly, it eliminates the risk of bad habits “slipping out” in situations in which it is critical to convey propriety, such as writing a college essay or a job résumé.
  • Just remember “You’re not spelling your words correctly,” and it all falls into place.

Warnings

  • There is another word, yore, that sounds just the same as you’re and your. Yore refers to times long past and isn’t used often in casual speech.
  • Simple grammatical errors, such as incorrect use of your and you’re, can harm how others perceive your credibility when they read your compositions. It is in your best interest to learn how to use these words properly.

 

So take these lessons and write and send someone a letter today, send them an iwiLetter!
