A Month Of Letters

I don't know Mary Robinette Kowal. Never met. Likely never will. Her in OR. Me in MS. But today I sent her a letter. She's thrown down a gauntlet she is calling: The Letter A Month Challenge. And I'm always fond of gauntlet-picking-uping!

Pretty easy rules: 

  1. 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.
  2. Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.
So, I picked up a pack of pens ($8) some stamps ($9) and a few writing supplies ($10.) I figure I'll surprise several of my friends with letters. Most of them have probably never seen my handwriting. 

Less than forty dollars for one of MY experiments? That's cheap. And this time I'll be sharing. Seems like a good idea. We'll see how it goes. 

Want a letter? Let me know! I'll send you one.
