    I'm going to write a letter to my grandparents today. Family first, pen people second. I think that is what most (just Eric, really ) seem to be doing.

    I wrote to three FPGeeks (two of them I wrote to last night, but I mailed the letters today) and also sent a bunch of other mail for various other projects and challenges. I'll be sitting down soon to write more.

    Funny that writing to my family is the hardest for me to do. I chat with them all the time, send email, comment on their FB pages, but when it comes to writing to them, I don't know what to say.
    I enjoyed InCoWriMo very much in 2013, but I got a bit overwhelmed. I'll be reading the forum in 2014, but not actively participating.

    I did. Sent off the package to my blog contest winner, with a letter, of course.

    Yep, Fountainpenkid has a letter on the way. I picked up some NASA postcards to put in the letters just for fun. My plan is to write to every single international address posted in the forum thread, plus the handful of regular letters I need to write. Made for a happy Feb 1!!

    Note to wife, letter to friend. I am finding it hard not to send letters out to everyone on my list at once. Only thing saving me is a lack of time.

    Yes I sure did. Mine went out in the mail. Lets hope I get up early enough to write and mail off tomorrow's letter before the postman comes for it.

    My class and I sent ours off today to one of my regular pen pals. This weekend I have some family members that want a letter in the mail, and then Monday my class will be writing to Eric.

    I've gotten some good responses to my request for people to write back to my kids. This is going to be even more fun than I thought.

    I wrote and mailed two letters today, one to me sainted father and one to a mystery recipient.

    I really want to sit and write ten or more letters. But I'm pacing myself =)

    I'm done for today! Next week I'll be sending the weekend postcards to my family.

    Happy writing everyone!

    I'll tire at day three if I write too many. My first it done, though!

    For some reason I suspect Eric will get quite a lot of letters in the first days.

    The pent up pressure to both write and receive letters is astounding. This could initiate a major shift in the culture.

    I sent my first to America, who knew it was so hard to send a letter out of this country! You have to take it in to the post office to have it weighed. No just popping it in the post box, just finished my second to my mum, was hard to think of things to write to her but I'm sure she will enjoy receiving some of my mumblings.

    #2 is written and heading to Yukon. I sat and addressed the remaining 26 envelopes and tucked something in each envelope. I think I have most every international address posted, so Australia, Belgium, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden,Canada, Spain, etc here I come!! :-) I have an additional five personal letters that need writing so I will be going way over the goal and that makes me happy. I plan to respond to anyone as well, so I am glad I have some new bottles of ink. :-) My IT professional husband is truly befuddled by all of this, but is watching with a certain amount of curiosity . . .

    Isn't it just wonderful? And what a wonderful change in culture it would be, for sure. Do you think young people today can fathom that joy of seeing an envelope in the mail, carefully addressed to them and full of words meant just for them?

    I thought about doing that, but I don't have enough envelopes right now. As soon as I get those envelopes I plan on doing the same thing as I worry about losing my little paper (no printer so I couldn't print out a calendar) that has everyone's names, address and date to write.
