The Month of Letters Challenge--Update
The main impact for me of participating in the challenge--I don't actually send as much mail as I thought I did. Interesting to learn. I knew my writing and mailing habits changed after having Maya, but not quite to this extent. Keeping track of what I'm sending on a daily basis brings reality into better focus, just like with daily eating diaries and spending habit trackers.
See the Postcrossing blog for a post on Mary Robinette Kowal's challenge. In the comments, you might come across someone to become a new pen friend, as well. And there's always the option of joining Postcrossing if you aren't already a member and enjoy sending and receiving postcards, too.
Happy mailing--beyond February 2012, too!
