A hundred words on a lost art

A hundred words on a lost art

Somebody once said letter writing is a lost art.
That’s probably true, considering most of the written communication we see nowadays is on some sort of screen.
I read an article on the Internet — which kind of proves my above point — about someone who had the idea to craft responses to text messages in calligraphy, snap photos of the paper with a phone camera and send the pictures as replies.
The web went wild, as if seeing whole words written out instead of abbreviated brought about a wave of nostalgia it wasn’t sure it could handle.
It made me LOL.

A hundred words about social media

A hundred words about social media

Social media revolutionized communication.
You know what your friends eat breakfast or worse.
I’ve noticed everyone is a photographer on Instagram.
There’s Pintrest.
There’s Twitter, where you have 140 characters to make your point.
Twitter has been wonderful. It’s forced me to learn to cut the crap from my writing.
I used to detest hashtags because there are no spaces, which makes me think everything I know is wrong.
During The World Wars miniseries, I had a change of heart.
Hashtags remove tweets I don’t need, which is what I did to 121 of the original words in this post.
