Write On Challenge 2018

Hello everyone.  I have been trying to post this for two days now but the internet around here had other ideas.  The photo I took just won't upload before the internet peters out so I'm going to forgo it.  If I can add it later I will.  Very frustrating!  

Anyway, the Write On Challenge has begun and I am ready for it.  I set up shop at the end of the dining room table so I can write and still be close to the fire.  It's still a bit too chilly to sit at my writing table so I thought I would just get comfortable downstairs for the time being.  I've got a stack of letters to answer, thank you notes to write and even query letters to museums and colleges to do with the restoration of our house to compose, so I have plenty of motivation.  I am being sensible, however, since the cold and damp make too much writing physically impossible at any one time.  Having everything I need close at hand and near the hearth is proving a very positive action and I've written something each day so far and hope to continue with the challenge. 

I had hoped to create some stationery to mark the event but fell into the grips of yet another cold.  I do have some stationery to use from my stash but I just thought it would be fun to make something, or even embellish something for the challenge.  I suppose there is still time to dabble but, writing, first and foremost just now.

I hope those of you joining in with the Write On challenge are having fun with it.  And for those of you interested in stats, so far I have written 2 letters, a postcard and a thank you.  Not too shabby.  I usually participate in Lettermo to get my letter writing back on track after the holidays but with the flu that didn't happen so I'm doing that now and liking the connectivity with pen and paper on a daily basis again.


  1. Although I'm not participating in Write-On, I am enjoying April as National Letter Writing Month. Loved your recent letter, Anna, and there is a reply in the mail winging its way to you.

  2. Hi Jen, I'm enjoying the writing process again too thanks to the challenge. There's nothing better than a cup of tea and a paper conversation. I look forward to hearing from you. Your envelopes are always so eye catching.
