About Good Ways to Write  

In today’s hurry-up world of fast phone calls, emails, social networking, and instant messaging, thoughtful writing is fast becoming a lost art.  That’s a shame—thoughtfully written communications mean so much to those who receive them! Besides, written communications last longer than spoken words alone. Just think: With a bit of reflection and planning, you can inspire others with your writing. 

Good Ways to Write, the publishing arm of All My Best, helps by providing you with tools and other resources to write your own heartfelt personal letters and business communications to special people on special occasions. Share the love—WRITE ON!

Whenever Lynette is asked why she was moved to establish Good Ways to Write, she tells this story:

Byrons Letter rt"When our son Byron married Rachael in 2008, they created lasting memories that touched our hearts: They each wrote a loving letter to their own parents, describing not only their fondest childhood memories but also the values, life lessons, and ideals they would bring to their marriage. At the wedding rehearsal, one at a time, they presented their letters to their parents. Both sets of parents, as well as all others present, were deeply moved. We will always treasure our loving memento."

Inspired by Byron and Rachael's original idea, Lynette created this website and its tools and products to help you write your own treasured personal letters and business communications, in furtherance of her life's purpose:


  The Big, Achievable Goal

To get millions of people worldwide to write heartfelt letters
of appreciation so they can establish, enhance, and even
rebuild their relationships and thus change their world.
