But there is a ray of hope in all of this, and it comes from writer Mary Robinette Kowal. Mary has declared February Letter Writing Month! Through the month of February she encourages you to write 24 letters, which is one a day Monday-Saturday. (Here in the U.S. of "eh", we have delivery every day of the week except Sunday, and Monday the 20th is
Here's the challenge, as written on the website:
- 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.
- Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.
As you can probably guess, this is right up my alley!
Do you want to join in? You can "register" on the website.
Do you want me to send you a postcard during February? (Yes, sending a postcard counts.) Easy! Email me your mailing address to urbanadventureleague -- ( at ) -- gmail -- ( dot ) -- com PLEASE NOTE: To make things easier, just email me your mailing address. You don't have to ask if I'll send you something. I'm putting myself out there for this! Yes, I will send you something! Even if you are not in the United States! If for some reason I get too many and don't feel like I can commit to writing everyone, I will let you know. But of course, if I write you something, you have to write me back!
Or if you aren't shy, put your mailing address in the comments below. That way others can write you as well!
And of course my address, if you weren't able to find it elsewhere on this site:
P O BOX 14185
PORTLAND OR 97293-0185
*Wherefore art thou Lincoln's anniversary?
