First example is past simple tense... Something happened in the past, done, over...

I went running
I played on my phone

the other example is present perfect tense
usually it connects somehow the past with future
something happened in the past but still has consequences to the future
but there are always many discussions about what is still past simple and what is present perfect...
I have trained football for many years... (still trains)
I have gone outside... (still out there somewhere)
I have been busy recently... (and the situation hasn't changed)

About your example, not really sure how to deal with that without the context... perhaps....
I finished writing a letter - this thing is far gone...
I have finished writing a letter - perhaps just now and you're about to read it again and correct mistakes or something...

Hope you understand and it helped somehow :-D

Other questions about "Letter"

Q: Here's a letter from her.
Let's see what she must say. Does this sound natural?
A: This is so close that I may have been unfair saying 'A little unnatural'.

I would be tempted to write:

Here's a letter from her.
Let's see what she has to say.

'has to' does not mean 'must' here. Think of it more like 'Let's see what (important things she has) to say. What does she possess (have) in terms of things to say.

'Let's' is short for 'Let us'.
