Another site promoting letter writing is The Month of Letters, hosted by Mary Robinette Kowal, where participants commit to writing and mailing at least one letter, note, or postcard every day that the post office is open for business during the month of February. This year that means mailing 23 items. Being that I like mail, I thought it would be fun to do something to celebrate all three letter/hand-writing events and do my part to help promote snail mail. So...I decided to host a giveaway.
But what to give away?
Well, I'm not really sure how I ended up with two copies of Just Write: The Art of Personal Correspondence by Molly O'Shaughnessy but I did. I suspect it was probably several years ago, when I had a job where I was working 60+ hours a week. Back then I was way too exhausted to do much pleasure reading so I probably bought, started, & forgot it (after all, I've loved all things letter related since I was a kid but when I was working those kinds of hours I didn't have much time for reading about or writing letters either), then bought another copy when I had more time to read. Recently I found my extra, long-forgotten copy while doing some sorting and cleaning. Since I definitely don't need two copies of the same book, I've decided to hold a giveaway for my second copy.
If you'd like a chance to win Just Write, here are the details:
- Fill out and submit the form below.
- This contest ends at midnight PST (aka California time) on January 26, 2013.
- The winner will be picked by Random Number generator and I'll announce the winner on January 27. That way I can hopefully have it in the mail and on its way to the winner before February. If the winner's address isn't included on the form then he/she will have one week to respond to my email with their mailing address. If I haven't heard back by then, I'll have to chose another winner.)
Giveaway over, winner (& runners up) picked, and goodies mailed. Thanks to all who entered.
