I love letter writing. I’ve written to penpals and friends since I was about nine years old. I used to mail dozens of letters a week to people all over the world. But as I grew up, I ran out of time and slowly drifted away from the practice. This month, however, I’ve started to get back into it. And I’m really excited because I found out there is a letter writing challenge that goes on every year in Feburary called LetterMo! Since I was already writing, I’m now just joining in this challenge.
Even if you don’t want to commit to a letter every day (I write them at work when bored, or on my breaks, so it doesn’t cut into my free time), I encourage you to try to write a letter to someone this month. 🙂 It’s fun, it makes other people happy, and it’s exciting when/if they write you back!
If you don’t know where to start, there are several groups of people who could use a friendly word from you, and some organizations to do fun things with mail.
