“Or don’t you like to write letters. I do because it’s such a swell way to keep from working and yet feel you’ve done something.” -Ernest Hemingway
I am writing to you today because I’d like to show you something. I chose you because I heard you enjoy reading and learning about new things, gaining insight in areas that you may never have before. I also heard you have an open mind, and that’s important, too. I’ve worked to put together this website you show you the many different types of writing I have done, hoping you can appreciate them each of them as their own.
Each piece that I have written has its own meaning, and with each I had a specific goal in mind. Sometimes I write to entertain, other times to invoke some sort of emotion whether it be happiness or sorrow, and sometimes to make you simply think about something, and potentially even change your mind. Although there are different ways that I communicate with you reader, there is always an underlying message I try to convey.
It is curious that I have chosen to write you a letter today, isn’t it? The art of letter writing is slowly dying out. I, of course, can’t say I haven’t contributed to it’s downfall; this is an electronic portfolio, after all. But I have decided to recognize the importance of a thoughtful letter today by guiding you through the work that I have to show you through letters.
