To celebrate the release of my new book for teen girls, Graceful, I’ve invited some of my favorite writers to write a letter to their teenage self. If you would like to join in, write your own letter on your blog and link it up at the bottom of my September 14 post. Details below.
examples of letters written so far:
Gary Morland’s Letter (My Dad)
Kat’s Letter (Inspired to Action)
The Nester’s Letter (My sister)
Why write a letter?
This younger generation is all around us, but sometimes we forget the types of things they are thinking and walking through. I wanted a way to encourage my peers to remember what it was like to be sixteen again. Maybe writing a letter to ourselves will help us to see the people who are sixteen still. And maybe be moved with compassion on their behalf.
How to write your own letter
- What would you say to your teenage self about life? Love? Fear? God? Leg warmers? Big hair? Belief? Be real.
- Here are lots of graphics to choose from to include in your post, if you’d like.
- Photos are always fun.
- Link up your post with others who wrote letters here.
- If you would like to share my book with your readers, you may include a link to www.gracefulthebook.com
