February is almost here and that means it is time for A Month of Letters. Begun in 2012 by writer Mary Robinette Kowal, A Month of Letters has a simple concept- write one letter each day of February and write a return to whatever you receive. It was a lot of fun last year and should only be even more successful this second-go-round. You can sign-up on the website and I'd also recommend following her blog on the subject. Plus, you can download fancy stickers for free and buy a pretty postcard. It's all great fun. I encourage everyone to give it a try.
In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters! (Read the full mission statement here.)
