Outgoing for the second day of LetterMo

Friday night a friend of mine came over and brought stationery, note cards, stickers and such. We went out for Chinese food then came back here and spent the evening making envelopes and writing letters. We had a great time, made a lot of mess, and stayed up until close to 4 AM! I think we did more talking and laughing than actual work but that's okay.

I can't tell you the last time I stayed up that late and having someone to talk to and bounce ideas off of was great. I really wish I could find others interested in this stuff but so far no luck. Well, I posted an ad on CL recently looking for other fans of letter writing and got one response from a woman in a town an hour and a half from me. We're too far apart to meet often but have agreed to write one another and perhaps meet for coffee in the near future. It's a start and hopefully will lead to something similar to Jan's Write To Delight writing club. I would love to have a group like that in my area so I'm trying to think of ways to find others. Maybe it will work out. Who knows?

I was so very tired Saturday after staying up late that I forgot to take a picture of my outgoing mail but I sent out two letters and two postcards that day. 

I have a very long work shift tomorrow so I doubt that I'll write any letters or postcards. I have some things ready to send out, though, and will try to remember to get a picture of those.

I hope your Sunday is lovely!


  1. Sounds like an enjoyable evening. I don't have anyone here who has an interest in letter writing either.

    1. JarieLyn, it was really a lot of fun. Having someone else makes it all more fun but it sure seems difficult to find local people interested in writing. I'm sure there are some but they must be hiding! Do you have a craft store with a bulletin board? I put up a notice at one here and hope to get some kind of response from that.

  2. It sounds like you might have the start of a group with the friend who came over. Either way, it certainly sounds like fun but agree that it's hard to actually write letters with all the talking & sharing of letter related ideas. ;)

  3. Sounds like a ton of fun. If I lived closer I'd be up for your group. You may want to check out Letter Writer's Alliance. They do area writing socials. Maybe you could find something through them. (lolarennt424 from the LetterMo boards.)

  4. Have you tried You might find some likeminded people there, or you could start your own group.

    It sounds like an awesome evening.

  5. Denise, you have a writing club of two. Nurture it, and watch it grow. ;)

    You're off on a good start. Congrats.

  6. Thanks, y'all! She came over again today before I went to work and we went shopping for goodies for writing. Oh my, we're dangerous when we're together! It was fun, though.

    T, I haven't tried with this but might do that. Thanks for the idea.

    Limner, you're right. You're so right! :)
