Postcard Writing

One of my writing tips is to carry postcards (you can find them free around town, advertising galleries and such), or index cards, if you're in a pinch. They're informal, they offer limited space (almost unheard of in our age of the infinite blank page of word processing systems), they encourage you to write to a specific audience (though you don't have to mail the card), sometimes the picture serves as a writing prompt, and they're light and, as I said before, often free or inexpensive.

And now there's a cool-looking book and contest related to this idea! (Sadly, I had nothing to do with either.)
