A simple challenge. In February, mail 1 item through the post every day it runs. Answer every letter you receive.

Welcome to February, and an interesting challenge from author Mary Robinette Kowal. She has given us a challenge: write one letter per day this month and mail it to someone. If you want, you can join any one of several lists going around so that other people can do the same back.

I first heard about this challenge through a friend's blog. She'd first heard about it from Mary and decided to gather a bunch of her blog followers to swap addresses and start writing and mailing. Just like the old days!

I saw another blog reference to it today and decided, what the heck, let me try it too! So, I just mailed a card to my sister in Western New York. I'll start in on the list my blogger friend sent over, since I also "know" a lot of the folks on it.

I think this is going to be fun and I encourage you all to check it out for yourselves. Here's the website (yes, the person who put together the challenge actually created a website, too!) for more information - http://lettermo.com/

There's also a Facebook page for the February letter-writing challenge, at: https://www.facebook.com/LetterMo. And, last but most surely not least, the Twitter feed as well: https://twitter.com/lettermonth
