I wrote a few extra cards to my pen pals. They probably were pleasantly surprised cuz I've never done that before. Not a big commitment, so I could just do it when I had time.

Been an unusually busy month for me, and trying to get these last letters done was impossible. I did get postcards out to everyone ho has sent me a letter in the last half of the month, so I got 31 mailings done by deadline.

I got out 31 letters somehow, but my to-reply pile is probably in the double digits so March is going to be busy.

 

It was fun as always. :) So many beautiful examples of mail art!


I'll come up with something eventually.

First year I've attempted it.  I wrote 18 letters.  While that is short of the goal, that's far more letters than I've written in a month before now.  

 

Next time I'll have a better handle on what it takes to get a letter out every day.   

 

And now onto March, the month of replys.

March on, and in April, there's #write_on!

 

I failed to write on some days in February due to illness. But, I did write more than 30 letters in February. Got quite the pile of letters to reply to.

 

18 letters is a great effort. Writing letters should be enjoyable and not feel like a chore.


I blog at http://correspondenc...blogspot.co.uk/ on correspondence and stamps and such. I also have a snailmail forum

Participating in InCoWriMo-2019.

Best wishes

Mia

April is National Card and Letter Writing Month.
It seems like InCoWriMo overshadows that by a long shot. I tried to write a letter a day in April of last year, but didn’t get beyond two weeks. I think February is an easier month not simply because it is shorter, but dark evenings seem to promote letter writing more. Just a theory of mine.

I'm writing a letter a day now and have expanded my list. Family never writes back (they call or text), but they're all getting letters from me now anyway.

Wow, I didn't know about Card and Letter Writing Month! Sounds great!

I sure hope that the world will go back to normal before April is up, because postal service isn’t working in some countries.... I will be writing to random nursing homes within the U.S. that I found on SNS, but it’s not the same as writing to my pen pals...
