ADVICE FOR WRITING A GREAT LOVE LETTER from "When Romeo Wrote Juliet" by Brian Holtcamp and Paula Hilton

Do you want to charm someone endlessly? Are you interested in giving your loved one a timeless and inexpensive keepsake of your affection? If so, writing a love letter is what you need. You may be thinking "why bother? I can call, fax, or even E-mail." All true but consider this, fax and E-mail are still based on the ability to write. Besides, it is much more romantic to sit down with some fine stationer y and a fountain pen and scribe your true feelings in an original document.

If you feel daunted by the prospect of putting your affection down on paper, here are a few of the many ideas from our book to help you compose a sincere and original missive your loved one will read over and over.

1. Find a special place with comfortable surroundings to put yourself in the mood to write passionately. This can be anywhere from a favorite coffee shop to a local park. Simply changing your normal element or routine will get you thinking in different ways. Experimen t a little to find a place that works for you.

2. Be sincere in your prose. In other words, be yourself. You do no t have to write like someone else (famous or otherwise) to communicate your affection. When you write from the heart, the passion will flow naturally from you to the paper. There are no rules and it will not b e graded.

3. Write about some small detail you admire in your love. Maybe the sound of their voice is like music to you. Or it could be the way the y wrinkle their nose when they smile. (You will NOT find this in a pre-printed greeting card.) It shows great appreciation and affection for the person you write to and lets them know they are very special t o you.

4. Write different types of love letters. Notes to long time companions are as well received as impassioned declarations to your ne w love. A thank you note to someone important in your life can be as touching as novella to your sweetie. Lusty letters to someone intimat e can be stimulating. However, use metaphor to elegantly describe what you are thinking. This is much classier and will be better received than a overly graphic description.

5. Make it fun and interesting. Spice the letter up with some calligraphy, drawings in the margin, a photo, or some confetti that flies out when the letter is opened. Try a few interesting delivery methods. Leave it in their briefcase or purse. Send it with a singin g telegram. Try some lipstick on the bathroom mirror.

Your letter may be a short note, or an impassioned declaration. Rest assured. When the other tokens of affection have been consumed or hav e withered away, the letter will have a special storage place reserved for the most valuable possessions.

We hope all your correspondence is filled with affection!
