So far, I have written 6 letters this month. Here are some of the letters I’ve written:
I’m happy to report that I haven’t had any problem making wax seals. I am a little wary that they won’t survive the postal system, so after the first rather large seal, I decided to scale down to flatter seals. They don’t look quite as nice, but they still add so much character to the aesthetic of the letter.
As far as reaching 30 letters in 30 days, going to the #Write_On event in San Francisco helped me get a head start, but since then, I haven’t been able to get the focus I needed to sit down and write letters. I have also been stuck with how to find people to send letters to. Yesterday, I decided to join the League of Extraordinary Penpals, so ideally that will help. Until I get more situated with them, I plan to write to the following people: Azizah from Gourmet Pens, Brian Goulet, Ellen Degeneres, Taylor Swift, and my friend Marina and Steven.
