Start 2014 "Write!" - Hosted at The Estella Society

Look! Some winter fun! Here is the gist of it:

Here we are in 2014 and things are ticking right along! One of the coolest part of the holiday season for us is sending REAL MAIL to our friends, family, and bloggy community members. In order to keep the good times rolling Kailana from The Written World got together with us to create “Start 2014 Write!” A letter/card exchange!
  • You may send letters, postcards, or greeting cards, but you should write a significant, thoughtful message meant to brighten someone’s day. This may require you to poke around on their blog and get to know them better. Fun!
  • Use the form below to sign up to send and receive a specific number of letters (1, 3, or 5)
  • Sign-ups end January 20
  • Receive your assigned recipients by January 27
  • Have the entire month of February to send your letters, postcards, cards, etc. All correspondence should be in the mail no later than February 28, 2014. 
  • Because international shipping of letters and postcards is quite inexpensive, the assumption is that any participant may receive one or more international recipients
If you’re moved to do it, you can include something inside your letter or card, butPLEASE limit it to $5 or less. The important thing is to write something in the letter to brighten someone’s day…
So, you should head over to the Estella Society and join!

I chose February because it is also Letter Month hosted by author Mary Robinette Kowal.

  2. This sounds like so much fun! Let me think about it . . .

  3. Of course I'm in! I was wondering if Letter Month was happening again. And you've just answered that. I'm a little nervous about my ability to participate fully this year as my son is getting married the first week of March. But we'll see. Maybe it won't be as stressful as I imagine!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
