A while ago, like over a year, my eldest and I started writing letters back and forth in a journal to one another. It was a joint idea to keep us talking when she was in her awkward teen years and had an easier time through writing than verbally talking.
It fizzled after a while because I would do these long entries and I would get back like a paragraph and a whole page of smiley faces.
Now I know what you’re thinking, I’m the writer in the family, it would be easy for me. No, she writes too.
So we’ve decided to try this again, at her request, and now I’m drawing a blank. I’ve looked up questionnaires and writing prompts and am getting nowhere. I love the idea of this, always have, just don’t know what to do with it yet.
