I’ve recently decided that this is going to be my first year writing a Christmas newsletter. We all get them. We all
get bored with enjoy them. I typically don’t have a hard time getting myself to write. (Obviously, you are thinking if you are a frequent reader of this blog.) I often times have to restrain myself from turning these posts into novels.
However, there are still some forms of writing that I can find difficult. It becomes especially tricky when I have to write for a certain, close or general audience. As in, an audience I can’t use the word “shyte” around. As in, the audience who will be reading my Christmas newsletter.
Taking the leap I went ahead and wrote my brief letter blog style. Instead of being all mushy-gushy, I went ahead and voiced my words in my usual, slightly-snarky and semi-ironic way. I did however, refrain from using the word “shyte.” I also designed it with pretty graphics and pictures, so maybe, just maybe, the images will entrance anyone from being offended by my writing style. (Oh, the glorious benefits of being a Graphic Designer!)
I haven’t printed/mailed these off yet, so if you have any pointers for me feel free to share. Also, I’d like to know if you write your own Christmas newsletter? Do you find it more difficult than regular freestyle writing?
