A Month of Letters Starts Today!

When was the last time you wrote a letter?

A card?

A postcard?

Anything without an "e" in the title?

Make February the time to do just that: join A Month of Letters.

It's simple, really. Just write a letter or postcard. To anyone. About anything. And pop it in the mail. Then repeat through February.

Don't worry, you don't have to be wordy, just thoughtful. Or funny. Or — well, you decide.

Stop by the stationery store (yes, they still have those!) and pick up a box of blank cards. Or stop by Target, or your favorite drug store. A sheet of notebook paper folded into an envelope will work as well. Be as fancy or simple as you want.

Yes, writing a letter on the computer counts (if you print it and mail it, of course).

Here are a few ideas:
  • Congratulate a friend.
  • Praise the work of a professional.
  • Thank someone.
  • Send a memory, happy or poignant.
  • Share your favorite poem.
  • Print a photo and send it as a postcard (it's easy!
  • Wish someone a happy birthday.
  • Write a fan letter.

Join me for A Month of Letters!
