Responding to contacts

April 29, 2010

Several hours each day are devoted to personal responses to emails, letters and phone calls or texts.

Being notoriously prolix I suspect that my replies sometimes exceed expectations. Five hundred words is usual and a couple of thousand commonplace.

The range of topics is very wide.

Sometimes there is a constructive to and fro which can be very informative. I make a point of not pretending to know everything and people seem to respond well to that.

Many are delighted not to have received the usual party blather but a considered genuinely personal response.

This evening several postal votes have been confirmed for me which is very warming. Thank you.
