Best thing about this project

As this 365 Letters project gets underway, I've discovered one of the best things about it is the responses I'm getting in the mail! That might have seemed obvious, but now that the letters have started showing up in the mailbox, it's been confirmed!

It's been such fun getting letters from friends I haven't heard from in quite a while! Many of my friends are people I've worked with over the years, so we have varying perspectives on the newspaper/journalism world. 

When my husband and I (along with our young daughter) moved about four hours away from where we'd lived for the previous 20 years, we left behind our network of people who think like us. We enjoy the rural home we've been living in for almost 6 years now, but we often find ourselves isolated when it comes to the things we like to discuss. This letter-writing project has put me back in touch with those people who think like we do, who have the same off-beat sense of humor journalists tend to have, who really know who I am.

It's also fun to find out some of the similar things we've all been doing or thinking about. I guess that's how true friends are!

Why don't you try it? Write a letter today!

Truly a fabulous idea, putting pen to paper & actually writing a letter is becoming a lost art. Thanks so much for sharing your project :0)
