Mary Robinette Kowal is sponsoring the Month of Letters (or LetterMo), and today was my stock-up-on-stamps run. During LetterMo, the goal is to handwrite a letter, card, postcard, etc, each day of the month. Getting things in the mail (that aren't junk or bills or magazines or holiday cards), writing letters, they're pleasures we don't much have anymore. While i'm a technophile at heart, I love getting things in mail. Holiding on to something, touching it. Which likely accounts for my prefering books to e-books.
Now, all I have to do is drop my letters in the outbox at work each day, and I'm set. If you want to play, Kowal has a LetterMo site set up here. Apparently, The Guardian ran a story about LetterMo, and it's getting some attention from various outlets.
So if you'd like to get a real, live letter in the mail from me, feel free to leave a comment with an address. Comments are screened. Alternately, you can PM or email me. Or you could just stop by the LetterMo site.
