If you wish to contribute a letter to my upcoming “series of letters”, here are a few guidelines.
Quite a number of people have asked what sort of letter, what are the rules and how do they send it to me?
Firstly any letter can be featured.
It could be a letter to a first love, to an absent parent, to a teacher or friend.
Maybe a Letter to yourself in the future or one to a younger you,
to someone who wronged or hurt you, or a letter of confession.
There are endless opportunities.
There are no rules but try not to have it over 800/900 words, otherwise it can be as short as you wish.
All I ask is that you speak from the heart.
In order to send the letter to my site I think the easiest thing to do is to write it as usual as a draft on your own blog.
Then go to Contact me on the menu part of my blog and copy and paste your letter into the email.
Be sure to let me know if you wish to remain anonymous.
I would prefer if you did not post the letter on your blog until after it appears here.
I know I have readers who are not bloggers. If you would like to contribute a letter you are most welcome, just send it to me via email and let me know if it is to remain anonymous.
I will contact you to let you know I received it and I will let you know prior to publishing it.
Afterwards I was going to add a link in my menu so they can be read whenever. If you ever wish to withdraw your letter just let me know.
I am so looking forward to this. I hope to print the first letters this Saturday and Sunday.
Thank you to all who are thinking about this.
I know for some these letters may be painful to write. I hope writing them brings you peace.
I will stick this post as a sticky post so it can be accessed anytime.
Nothing else left to be said only, “Go on you know you want to….. Get writing”.
******* To those who are sick of reading about these letters I apologise.
I will be posting a long overdue Freshly Impressed post later on this evening.

Should be some interesting reads. 🙂
I hope so. It depends on how many actually email one into me.
Well I reblogged, hope you get some interesting participation! 🙂
Aw OM you are soooo good. Next time you’re cranky on your blog I’ll remind you ( and me) that your a good person! 🙂
Shhh don’t spread that around too much ok? 😉
Mums the word!
I’ve written letters to my mom and dad both and after I’ve finished, I cannot read them. My questions are the same: Why did you hate me? Why did I deserve those beatings? Nah, I can’t go there.
Nor would I want you to. That poem says it all.
I’ve been reading your posts for quite some time and I admire the way you use your experience to help the lives of others.
Oops. Already emailed it. Will probably post in on my blog Jan 29/30. Sorry.
Did you email it to me? I didn’t get it. I’d love if you did send one I could schedule it early.
Uh-oh, maybe I have your email incorrect in my contacts list. Dang, that means someone else got it. I’ll forward it on your Contact Me page.
Oh dear. I hope it wasn’t anonymous. I did change my email about three months ago so maybe it was an old one. Glad you found out or you’d be my greatest follower just waiting for your letter to appear!
Don’t know if it came through with paragraph breaks. If you send me an email, I can send it as a word doc. Thanks, Tric.
It came through and it’s perfect. So powerful. A beautiful letter.
Thanks. As I wrote it, the emotion that came up surprised me, even after all these years. Silly to think we can “get over it.”

oooo I quite fancy doing this!
Oh great, thank you, looking forward to reading.
Wow I am amazed at how quick the words flowed once I got going!!! I have sent you what I have written. Hope its okay 🙂
Did you use the contact page. I haven’t got it yet?
yes If you need me to I can send it again. Might it go into your spam?
I checked my spam and all folders. Can you resend it via the contact me on my menu please. Sorry about this, I’ve received others so it must be working.
No probs I will try again. 🙂
Done. Fingers crossed it has worked this time 🙂
Received! It’s a beautiful letter. Thank you so very much.
Phew! Thank you for letting me know! You’re welcome. x
this sounds like a fantastically cleansing project. I hope I am able to contribute, if I can get the words out. Have you started the collection yet? And may I reblog and share?
Thanks a million. I’m hoping to begin this weekend one on Sat and Sunday. It will then be a regular feature, so hopefully it can run and run.
I’d be delighted with a reblog and share. The more letters the more reading.
I too think it is a very cleansing project, I once wrote such a letter and it allowed all the other nice letters to take it’s place.
Looking forward to reading if you do contribute.
great! i will share..i hope it reaches far and wide

Our Friend at My Thoughts on a Page has a wonderful idea! To collect letters, your letters…in a series of letters. Letters to a lost love, your lifelong partner, your child, your parent, or even to your younger or older self. It sounds like a fantastically cleansing experience and should be intriguing at the very least.
The series will be published…. no worries …. you can remain anonymous if you so choose.
Check out the Guidelines here … and do consider contributing.

My husband and I submitted love letters to each other on this. My husband however, is being a meany and won’t let me read his until it’s posted!
I sent in my letter..well letters. My husband wouldn’t let me read what he wrote until it got posted.
I can tell you your letters have arrived! I’ll have to post them early enough as you must be in great suspense. I called over to your blog but I couldn’t see comments.
I’d burst if I were you waiting.
I take it you do not wish to remain anonymous.
Yes I do not wish to remain anonymous! 🙂 You have to actually click on the post in order to comment, it’s silly. Thank you for letting me know!!! I can’t wait to see it!

Oh, this should be fun.
I will destroy you. That is all.
I’ll take the “love”.
You’ve got it.
Thanks for the invitation to share our letters with you. Most certainly I will send you a letter for you to post, I just have to pick the one I think best for this. Thank you again!
Thanks a million. I’m delighted and I hope you enjoy whichever letter you share. No one said you can’t send two!
Thank you: I just sent you a letter through your Contact form. I hope it arrived OK. I’m worried that the tone might be too dark…
Yes it arrived. All letters of any kind are welcome. Thanks a million.

I think this sounds like a brilliant idea, and I know more than a few of my followers might enjoy this!
I would love to participate. Is there a deadline?
I got your letter and emailed you back. No deadlines at all. I will run this series for a few weeks over the weekends.
