Don't Feel Like Writing

The problem with making a commitment to do something on a daily basis is that some days, you just... don't... feeeeeel like doing that particular thing.  For me, today, I just don't feel like writing. When this happens, it can be due to a variety of reasons - I'm tired, I don't know what to write about, I have procrastinated, it's getting late, I should be doing something else.

Today, however, I have a very good reason for not feeling in the mood to write - it's because I spent all of yesterday afternoon writing.  I wrote 18 cards and letters to my National Letter Writing Month penpals.  Eighteen!
On the plus side, I am now caught up for National Letter Writing Month. I agreed to respond to everyone who sends me something in the mail this month and my mailbox has been overflowing for about three weeks now.  But once I take these envelopes to the post office tomorrow, I will have written back to everyone.  Okay, okay, maybe not quite caught up.  Maybe there are one or two that I still need to get done.  But I'm almost there.  Lucky for me, there hasn't been any mail delivery for the past two business days, so no new mail has arrived either! ;)

I have been alternating between making cards and using postcards and notecards that I have in my stash.  I've enjoyed letter writing since I was a teenager, so I've been collecting stationery since way back then.

I'm not the only one making cards.  Here are a couple of pretty cards I have received from two very talented ladies.  This one was made by the other Cyn in the group. I love the texture of the woven piece she added to this card.  It really makes the finished piece a work of art, in my opinion.

This fantastic card was made by Gail.  How did she know I like hot air balloons?

Okay, I gotta go.  I've got at least one more envelope I've got to fill before bed tonight!

That is an amazing amount of writing in one day. Do you have a "writer's bump" on your finger? I used to get one in school from writing so much. Happy NLWM 2017.
