How To Write A Letter

By Shaye

Here are a few simple steps on how to write a letter;

  1. Get a piece of paper and write the date on the top right corner.
  2. Start your letter by writing: “Hi,” “Dear,” “Hello,” or “Hey,” then the person’s name.
  3. (Optional) Write “How are you? I am fine.”
  4. If it is your first letter to that person, write something that happened in the last day, week, or month.
  5. Write a lot of questions so that the person knows what to write back. (Some questions I usually ask: What have you been reading, What have you been watching, and if the person lives far away, what is the weather like.)
  6. End by writing “Love,” “Bye,” or “Cheers,” and then your name.
  7. Fold your letter to the desired size to fit your envelope with the writing inside.
  8. On either side of the folded letter write “To: (Person’s name)
  9. Put the folded letter into an envelope and seal.
  10. (Optional) Write “ONLY (PERSON’S NAME) READS” on the back of the envelope.
