52 letters in 2018 (week 3): Go local

Week 3 (January 15-21): Send a postcard from your community.

Last week I took a lunch break on a pretty afternoon and walked with a friend down to the NC Museum of History gift shop. I frequently run past the windows and notice the display of North Carolina-related postcards, and I was not disappointed.

display3_smI’m especially fond of the retro postcards and I picked up a stack of them. This week, the writing challenge is to mail a postcard from your community, which could be a souvenir postcard or you can expand out that definition for whatever inspires you. Maybe it means a postcard from a local book store, college, or visitor’s center. For example, I found several Raleigh-related cards in a downtown gift shop, Deco, this week, too.

And this week, I’m giving you a two-fer so you can get a jump start on next week’s letter-writing challenge, which may require a trip to the post office for special postage. See part two for Week 4 (January 22-28).

  1. Week 1 (January 1-7): Send a Happy New Year’s note.
  2. Week 2 (January 8-14): Send a Thank You note.
  3. Week 3 (January 15-21): Send a postcard from your community.
