A Month Of Letters 2013 Challenge

Can you remember the last time that you actually got a letter in the mail? In the actual mailbox and not an email? I think for me the last time would have been Christmas time. I love getting mail, don’t you? I love seeing something addressed to me that isn’t a bill.

The person behind this is author Mary Robinette Kowal.

Here is her challenge to us: (She even has a seperate blog up for this http://lettermo.com/ that you can click on to find out more about it.)

I have a simple challenge for you.

  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.

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.

  1. this is so true. I try and make a point of sending postcards out all year long. i purchase them by the box from online book retailers and then away I go. Canada Post has pre-stamped ones, the ones for Chinese New Years are usually gorgeous and peole love to receive them. I won’t be signing up as i find challenges too stressful, but I will make an effort to send even more. Got to go and write some out for my grandmother and her neighbour right now.

  2. So glad that you’re taking part Cindy! Looking forward to exchanging letters next month! 🙂
