Dear Friends and Family,
I participated in "A Month of Letters" in 2012. I skipped “officially” last year because I was in school, but I sent out 8 letters, 8 postcards, 15 birthday cards, 15 miscellaneous cards and 28 packages. Not bad for not even participating.
I’m participating this month, although I’ve been doing my own challenge for the year—writing to someone every day of the year. It’s a little crazy, but I love writing letters. I’m going to break my record of mailing things during 2013 (I sent out 628 items).
Even though I’ve always written letters, I thought it’d be fun to do this “A Month of Letters” challenge that can found at Mary Robinette Kowal’s website, and you can look for more details here. And taking the following from her site, it’s basically two things:
1) In the month of February, mail at least one item through the post every day it runs. Write a postcard, a letter, send a picture or a cutting from a newspaper, or a fabric swatch.
2) Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.
Okay, so I’m late with this, but write two in one day… or extend your challenge a few days, or just do what you can to keep letter writing alive!
