Well, it’s day 13 in A Month of Letters and I am thoroughly enjoying it. (If you’ve been thinking about playing along, but haven’t gotten around to starting, don’t despair! Read Mary’s post about starting late.) Before the month began, I printed the official calendar and scheduled my first week of letters, which made it so much easier for me to make sure the letters got written, even on days when I felt sluggish.
So far, I have written and sent out: a birthday card, a few bookmarks to a bookmark collector, a quick note to a friend who I’ve not seen in a while, a congratulatory note to a friend who just had her first child, a note to my grandmother, a letter to someone I met virtually during 30DC, a reply to Leah at European Paper Company who wrote to me as part of EPC’s celebration of National Letter Writing Week, another installment in my epistolary story collaboration, a letter accompanied by part of another story that I’m writing for a young friend, and a handful of Valentines.
Five of the letters I sent were letters I’d been intending to send for quite a while, but hadn’t gotten around to actually writing. In one rather embarrassing instance, I’d been intending to write since October. And now I finally have–success!
This week’s line up will include several more birthday cards, a note to another Month of Letters participant, and a couple letters to people I just haven’t written in a while. And I must get the rest of my letter-writing schedule plotted out for the month. I’m having such fun with this! Have you written any letters that have made you happy lately?
