Write On: 30 letters in 30 days

At the end of March I read a post on Brown Ink about a 30 day writing challenge during the month of April: Write On.

Since April is National Card and Letter Writing Month in the USA, Write On was initiated by two stationery companies: Hello!Lucky and Egg Press.  The challenge is to write one letter every day this month to someone different each day.  Thirty letters in 30 days.

Hello!Lucky and Egg Press even made writing kits containing 4 letterpress cards that they've been giving away for free! As of today, there are still kits available, so sign up here if you'd like one! (Side note: Mom and Dad, one should be coming to the house for me. You can just leave it in my room, please! It'll be a nice surprise when I come home this fall).

On April 1 I decided I'd go for it. Today is April 6 and I've written 6 letters so far, so I think I'm in good shape to complete the challenge. I'm making a trip to the post office on Mondays and Fridays after school this month, mailing them in batches rather than daily.

If you'd like to start participating, it's not too late! If you don't usually send letters, even writing and mailing just one would be a great way to celebrate the month.

If you need ideas for content or recipients, Egg Press is sharing ideas every day on Facebook and Instagram.

Want a letter from me?  Leave a comment and let me know, I'll write to you!  If I don't have your address, send it to me via email (rebewithaclause [at] gmail [dot] com).  Happy letter writing!
