Afternoon is ideal for me to take to the pen. I divide my writing duties into four classes. Letters and greeting cards tend to be the most lengthy and often require first drafts. In contrast, the average time required per emails or postcard is less consuming. I do not pen in piecemeal. Thus, in a sitting I complete one category of my correspondence. My outgoing mail for the day is usually deposited in the red post box by 16:50. Hoarding mail overnight delays the sense of accomplishment that overtakes me when my post has been sent.
