Writing Challenge: A Month of Letters

What a lot we lost when we stopped writing letters.  You can't reread a phone call.

Really, nothing beats going to the mail box and finding a handwritten letter tucked between the utility bills, political posturing, and snail-mail spam.  Even better when that handwritten envelope is unexpected.  So it was with great joy that I read Tia’s post (of Depression Cookies fame) about the Month of Letters Challenge, brought to you by Mary Robinette Kowal. 

The rules are simple: during February, snail mail at least one item during the days the post office is open. And make sure you write back to everyone who writes back to you.  For more info, visit Mary’s website.

With several pen pals, one would think I had enough letters to mail for more than twenty-four days.  Perhaps ~ we’ll see how it goes.  I signed up ~ join me, and if you’re so inclined, drop me an email with your POB and leave the digital world behind for the next month!

Oremus pro invicem,
~ Mikaela
