A Letter a Day

snail mailPat, a Post Whistle reader, urged me to let everyone know about InCoWriMo — not an association of rhyming cattle, but rather International Correspondence Writing Month. And it begins today.

imgresParticipants pledge to write a letter a day every day through the month of February. I don’t know if the organizers chose this month because it’s the shortest, so one’s letter total is under 30, or because the month surrounding Valentine’s Day seems the proper time to connect with loved ones near and far. Whatever the reason, this is the month to let those letters fly.

Life is too hectic for me to commit to writing letters daily, but I do write them weekly now that my daughter is attending college on the east coast. But for those with more stick-to-it-ness than I, pick up the gauntlet of InCoWriMo’s snail mail challenge and give your pen a workout.

    Love this idea. My dear friend with whom I exchanged letters and cards passed away last summer, and I miss her and her endearing cards. I worry that no on will have any love letters to wrap with ribbon and save anymore. Printing out passionate emails just wouldn’t be the same.

      Dear Phoebe….There are lot’s of people who still wrap letters with ribbons and who will correspond with you. LETTERMO and INCOWRIMO are just 2 events throughout February. Still time to join in the fun, even if you are late 🙂

    Not sure if I know 29 people to send something to. I used to write an email every day to my late friend Audrey, but snailmail would be different. I guess one would need enough envelopes, cards, or at least some kind of paper product to participate. Off to the store for supplies . . . maybe!
