52 Letter project


I’m deviating from the 30 Day project I’m doing just to change things up for you and me both!

Are you working on writing one letter a week? How are you doing? Me? I’m doing alright. I typically write letters to my friend Lydia, but I’ve been trying hard to find different people to write to. Since I last updated about this project, I wrote a few letters. I asked friends on Twitter who would like a letter, and had a few responses. So I wrote to The Non Consumer Advocate, whom I admire for her, well, non consumerism! I can’t remember exactly, but I think I wrote a letter to my friend Elizabeth, too.

I picked up a copy of The Phantom Tollbooth for $.25 at the thrift store and sent it to Geoff’s aunt and cousin, both of whom I know will enjoy it. They got an old postcard along with this book, which was from Geoff’s grandmother’s collection. The package was mailed in a reused envelope, so I do believe this was a very green package! That makes me happy.

I also wrote a thank you letter to Geoff’s aunt, for a birthday present she sent me. It was a set of cards with a girl pulling a wagon full of books, and reading one, too! There are also cats following her. I thought it was wonderful, and it was from an ALA conference, which meant the proceeds benefited libraries. This made me happy too. I wrote the thank you note on one of the cards, of course.

Unless I’m mistaken, I believe those are all the letters I wrote (aside from my regular letters to Lydia, my pen pal). I know I’m not keeping up with writing 52 this year, but that’s OK. I don’t mind that I’m not perfect, and the truth is I’m writing, and that’s what really counts.

How are you doing?
