Have you heard about the Month of Letters Challenge? It was created by award-winning novelist Mary Robinette Kowal, a champion of slow, reflective communication. Here’s the challenge:
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. Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items. All you are committing to is to mail 24 items. Why 24? There are four Sundays and one US holiday. In fact, you might send more than 24 items. You might develop a correspondence that extends beyond the month. You might enjoy going to the mail box again.
Writers and regular people around the world are taking part in the challenge, and so are we! Will you join us? Let us know in the comments, and check back here throughout February to see how we’re doing. (If you’re on Twitter, follow #LetterMo.)
