52 Weeks, 52 Letters Project — Week, Oh Who The Hell Knows . . .

I don’t know of any of you have noticed, but I have completely and utterly fallen off the wagon when it comes to my 52 Weeks 52 Letters Project. I had been really good about staying up to date, but then I suddenly stopped. At first I gave it no thought, as I’ve had a few weeks when I’ve written a couple letters, but somehow two weeks stretched into three, and then. . .  well, you get the gist. I suppose I could bend the rules and point out that I sent out seven books for giveaway week, or that I’ve been mailing out eBay packages left and right, but that’s hardly in the spirit of things.

I did actually write a letter to Tammy of Rowdy Kittens last week, but upon close inspection the letter was too personal and frankly somewhat odd. Don’t want to be sending that out into the world!

I wish I could say that I wrote a letter today, but such is not the case. Instead, I entertained Dusti Arab of Undefinable You (and her toddler) this afternoon, wrote three columns, took my son to a doctor’s appointment, made a rather delicious dinner, and potted up a couple dozen desirable yet decidedly volunteer plants to sell. (Euphorbia, Lady’s Mantle, Japanese Iris and Valerian.)

I have not given up on the letter writing challenge, and will most likely sit down and put pen to paper this evening. But please do know that just because a project has stalled doesn’t mean that it should be abandoned.

Are you still writing your letters? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.

I am not taking part in this project but if you are feeling uninspired why don’t you try writing a letter to your future self. Say one or five or ten years into the future.

I did this online (there is a site called future me I think). You write an email to yourself. I did this last year, forgot about it, and then received my email on my birthday. It was really cool.

Oh I meant to also say that if you write to yourself your letter can’t be “too personal” or “odd”.

Story of my life, Katy. Projects started, stopped, started again, put on hold, revamped and changed direction, and started up once again.

At this point, I’ve started just calling that whole start-stop thing: “life!”
