Drew Myron connected me with this incredible project-- A Month of Letters Challenge.
Here's the thing-- if you know me, you know I adore snailmail, realmail, postcards, mailart, notecards, and stamps.
I always have.
So when I read that writer Mary Robinette Kowal came up with this idea, I had to take part.
Here it is with a link to her original post:
- 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.
- Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.
All you are committing to is to mail 24 items. Why 24? There are four Sundays and one US holiday. In fact, you might send more than 24 items. You might develop a correspondence that extends beyond the month. You might enjoy going to the mail box again.
I plan on taking part. I do Valentines, so I feel slightly ahead of the challenge, but will sit down by the fire and write some special correspondence as well.
happy letter writing.
