If my last post, 30 Day Challenge, did not place a little fire in your belly, this post might be the one. Thanks to The Paper Chronicles recent blog post, I learned about the latest writing challenge from the collaborating minds of hello! Lucky and egg press. In celebration of April’s National Letter Writing Month (let me hear a CHEER!) these two groups are kicking off both a give-away and a letter writing campaign called WRITE_ON. Their passion for letter writing to continue to connect friends and loved ones is one I admire!
The group’s mission is for each individual to write a letter for everyday in April. And if you sign up soon, this special WRITE ON Letter Writing Kit which contains 4 letterpress printed cards, 2 from each printer, can be yours! Their hope is “to see an ever-increasing web of connectedness and good feelings” and they invite everyone to share their letter writing adventures online at #WRITE_ON. For more information head to the egg press site.
Initially it may sound overwhelming, however, you can make this a simple activity while you wait for the snow to melt. On your more hectic days, write down and mail a postcard of one thoughtful word or sentence to a friend. Or take 10 minutes to write that follow up from last weeks meeting, or write a letter to Congress on a stance you support. For me, I’m going for it, both 30 days of journaling and writing. In the end, my handwriting will have hopefully improve, moments will be captured, and hearts will be touched.
