For this swap we use a Letter Set and write in cursive a minimum one page letter to our partner answering at least three of the following topics.

------------Topics--------------

What is your favorite color? Has it changed through the years? Do you find yourself wearing it often or another color instead?

Of all my stationery supplies I have way too much of ...... and never seem to have enough of ........

Do you have pets? Describe them. If not, describe what type of pet you wish you could have even if it isn't a real pet!

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day?

Do you use a planner? Do you use a journal? In what fashion do you like to record your days or is it something you just haven't gotten into?

Can self decorated letter set be used?

I feel a bit lost when I read about the cursive writing because I don't know if it's a neat, calligraphy writing that is done with efforts or just a natural, usual writing. I mean, you talk about cursive writing as if it was something rare and uncommon, or not people's natural writing. But I've always written in cursive, it's my usual writing. So, is it ok, or do I have to grab a special calligraphy pen and write as we see people writing on YouTube?

@fairylover the reason it is talked about being rare is because it is no longer taught in schools so the new generation know how to write that way. I was a manager of a retail store and unfortunately the high school kids we would hire for part time positions literally printed their name as their signature. Kids these days cant even make a proper signature!

Much of the loss of handwriting is due to the switch over to digital. If homework is being turned in digitally and it is as young as 4th grade in our small community there is no real chance to practice handwriting. Handwriting is no longer one of the grades either. I still have my old 1970s and 80s report cards where handwriting was one of my grades.
