I may not have written about it lately, but I am still plugging away at the 52 Weeks, 52 Letters Challenge. I’m not exactly sitting down to write a letter every Monday at 2:13 P.M., but let’s just say that I actually ran out of stamps.
I took my son and a friend to the local arcade the other day , (I always have free admission coupons, which include $4 in nickels, so it’s uber-frugal) and I made sure to bring my stationery set. Yes, it’s difficult to focus on letter writing when inundated with ear-splitting electronic sounds and flashing lights, but I somehow was able to get three letters written. (Perhaps I should call this the 1 Week, 3 Letters Challenge!) And I’m pretty sure I was the only one there using a fountain pen.
I am really enjoying the task of putting pen to paper, as it’s grounding and can’t be rushed. (However, I am horrified with how bad my handwriting has become, as it long ago passed the point of acceptable.) What’s also fun is that I am getting return letters here and there; and once in awhile, I even get a package!
The 52 Weeks, 52 Letters Challenge is not something that had to be started on January 1st. You can start at any time, and customize it to fit your lifestyle. Heck, even if you just mail out a couple of letters, it’s still going to make someone’s day.
Because what’s better than opening up your mailbox and finding a letter from a friend?
