Taking Pen in Hand

Wednesday, 1 February 2012

I have written before about my love of the handwritten note. So imagine my utter delight to discover that novelist Mary Robinette Kowal has created A Month of Letters challenge.

A Month of Letters 2012

The art of letter writing, feared to be a relic of a slower time, has been embraced recently by a number of well-known authors. This particular challenge, which begins today, has caught national and international attention, much to the excitement of Kowal. Who reported that she nearly “swooned” when asked for an interview by The Guardian.

I, for one, am looking forward to making good use of the many notecards that I have accumulated over the years. Years, I tell you. Not to mention just imagining the excitement that will come when my recipients open their mailboxes to discover that a handwritten note awaits.

Let the games begin!

    I am so glad someone has taken the initiative to try to revive this much loved activity. I, for one, will continue to send out even if I never get a letter back! I just need to find some addresses to send to…
