For those who worry about choosing just the right words, simplicity is the best idea, the poet said. “Truth and authenticity can best be served by the simple resolve to express one’s own best thoughts in his or her own voice, poetic or not.”
And, it doesn’t need to be Valentine’s Day to write a love letter, says Hartland romance author Laura Stickland.
Strickland, whose three historical romance novels — including her latest “Daughter of Sherwood” — are available on Amazon.com, says “I think that the best love letters are the ones that are unexpected. There should not need to be a reason to write them except that you are in love with the person and you want them to know.”
“When someone says on a page that they vow they will love you forever, that’s the ultimate,” she said. “Life is difficult and there are a lot of day to day demands. But, those demands should never defeat love. Love should endure.”
