You know the monthly writing prompts we put on the Postcrossing blog, to give you ideas of things to write about on your postcards?
Sometimes they’re about food, music, architecture, literature, traditions, famous people and inventions… sometimes they’re about things from your country or region, and sometimes they’re unique to you. We think of them as mini conversation starters for your postcards.
We’re always looking of new topics to suggest on the blog, so if you have ideas, please let us know!
The themes should be interesting (something you’d like to read about on a postcard), but also universal, so that anyone can write about them no matter their age, language or locations. For instance, anyone can talk about a national holiday from their country, but not everyone will be able to write about their work experience. They also shouldn’t be too generic (eg. music) and need to make sense even if you’re not aware of the ongoing monthly prompt.
So… what do you think would be good things to write about on postcards?
