Letter Writing Month Day 1

My goal for this month is to write a letter per day. Now that I've told you about it I'll have to carry through.

My first letter is one to Kathleen that needs to be finished. It is oh so common for me to start a letter, set it down to do something as innocent as refill my coffee cup, and then to be distracted from it entirely for a couple days. I'm sure that hasn't happened to any of you. Getting back to the abandoned letter I began to tell her what I have been up to lately only to glance back and find I was repeating myself.

Perhaps I ought to amend my goal to include a "finish in one sitting" clause.

Letter written I realized I was out of envelopes so in haste I crafted a couple. This letter might not count for today unless it is signed, sealed, and stamped.

For a single day I have been successful in accomplishing my goal. I mean to do the same tomorrow. With enough successful and successive days I will soon catch up on correspondence.

Need writing inspiration? Write On has compiled a list of reasons to write. Thanks, Anna, for the link!

Now go write a letter!

  1. I'm glad to see I have company on my mission to write a letter a day. I actually wrote 2 letters yesterday, and today is a raining dull day so I see a cup of tea and my writing table in my future. Today I'll be writing to you and I'm looking forward to that. Happy writing!

    1. I've never pushed myself to write a letter a day but I think it will be an invigorating challenge. I look forward to your letter! For many conversations I have a cup of coffee, but for you, always tea!

  2. :) I sent 2 letters yesterday, and one of them came back to me today! They used my return address on the back instead of the address on the front. Two postcards ready to go to the grands. One more to finish. I don't know if I'll make the 30/30, but I will have fun trying.

    1. Funny thing, that actually happened to me once. I confess that on day two hopes for success aren't as high as they were on day one but I agree, it will be fun trying!

  3. I'm doing well so far! I have started a bullet journal, and putting my pen pal correspondence tracker in it, so I have everything in ONE place--a huge help. Just takes time to "create it" in the BuJo. But, if I SEE an unanswered letter that is logged in my snail mail log...then I feel more accountable. I think I will make a separate tracker for Write_on...to keep me extra motivated. Thanks for your post...."the struggle is real" ha, ha!

    1. That's a good idea to keep a log of incoming and outgoing. I don't though. :/ The struggle is real and after a day of running around and not writing it's all to easy to imagine the struggle being a painful one! Now to get offline and put pen to paper!
