Alexandra Franzen wants to live in a world where emails are short, love letters are brave and every “thank you” note is scribbled by hand. As a blogger writing instructor, she’s been spotlighted on The Daily Love, The Daily Muse, MindBodyGreen, Fast Company, Forbes and The Huffington Post. Her new book, 50 Ways To Say You’re Awesome, is available now. (And totally belongs on your holiday wish list. And gift list. And every list.) When it comes to being a better writer — and a better human being — she has a nine-word philosophy: Be generous. Keep it simple. You are not confused.
