#MilWordy Update: 121,259 words (5,458 words/day to complete)
One of the things I have always loved to do is write letters. Back in ye olden times before email was a glimmer in the programmers eye, people communicated across the world via the written word.
Back when I was a youngling, I had friends and family who lived in different states, or even countries. I had penpals with friends that I’d kept from when I shared a school with them. Friends who’s parents got posted to different countries. I moved a lot as a kid.
One thing I always did was write to those friends I’d decided to keep tight.
I have been too scatterbrained to properly keep up with that for a year or so. I will say that they don’t always write to me. But I do owe at least one letter to one of my friends and I am embarrassed that it’s taken so long for me to respond. I have actually added writing letters into my to do lists. And I’m going to try to schedule them regularly, so that I don’t have to really think about it. It’s just on my list to do and I’ll set aside time for it.
I have gotten to the point in my life that if I lose my external brains (AKA my planner and my phone) I will be a sad wreck. And then I will write down everything I can remember onto note pads.
Part of my new planner routine this year has been designating certain days for certain activities. While I don’t think that I could blast through all of my letter writing in one day. I could perhaps designate a day of the week and then a week of the month for each penpal. That could work.
Okay, I’m off to do that. I’ll follow up on whether or not this has worked in a few months. Well, I say that now, but I may or may not remember to do that unless I put it into my planner. LOL. So, we’ll start there. Then, I’ll update my calendar to include writing letters throughout the year. I mean, I’ve added writing out Christmas and Halloween cards already. This is just more of the same.
I feel like such a nerd sometimes.
