A Month of Letters Challenge

I came across the most delightful, charming thing.  Mary Robinette Kowal has has chosen to think of February as “The Month of Letters”.  During this month, you mail a letter to someone every day.

How do you feel about this?  Eager?  Unnerved?  Daunted?

I grew up making my own stationary and cards.  I mailed letters constantly.  A friend and I even wrote what we called “The Longest Letter In The World” and tried to outdo each other’s letter length in high school.  (What can I say? I seem to be surrounded by competitive people I MUST BEAT.)  But now I find that I send letters less and less. I didn’t even do Christmas cards this year, although the intention was always there.

A few of you have received handwritten letters by me, but they are few and far between.  I’m delighted by Mary’s challenge and plan to do it. It’s funny because I ordered stamps online two days before I even heard about this challenge.  The stars are telling me that I am meant to write.

Won’t you join me?  Perhaps we could send letters to each other.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful idea. I can’t remember the last time I sent or received a letter by mail that wasn’t a household bill. I’d love to do this.

  2. I love both writing and sending letters. I usually send out a bunch every month anyhow, so I’m think the challenge would just make me run around in circles and flail, but I love the concept!
