Well, this post is a day late (and a dollar short, as my Dad used to say), but February is International Correspondence Writing Month! Affectionately known as InCoWriMo, the goal is to write and send a letter, note, postcard–something!–every day of February.
I think we can catch up!
I had set a goal that I would send 365 letters this year and have already sent 36, so I’m doing OK. But it’s already Groundhog Day and I haven’t sent one yet in February, so I have to get crackin’.
Fortunately, I have a late January birthday, so I can begin with some thank you notes for the gifts and kindnesses I received. And as the winter chill keeps us indoors and some days are dark and gray, a bright note in a mailbox will be good to send some cheer to friends, pen pals and loved ones as we await spring.
And if being part of a larger movement is your thing, you can sign up as a participant here and join the party.
