I am realizing that this is not a project that lends itself to frequent updates. Of course, part of the point is to get away from the constant-quick-fix of online media, so it’s a little ironic that I feel vaguely guilty about not posting more updates here. On the other hand, it feels odd that there has been all sorts of activity with The Epistolary but no one really knows about it except me.
So, suffice it to say: I’ve got letters coming in, and letters going out, and it is all progressing swimmingly. I’d say that the project so far has exceeded my expectations, in terms of both quantity and quality. Pictured below is the first international letter I have received, from China. I am going to have to step up my game, both in terms of physical presentation and your basic penmanship, in order to hold my own against some of the stuff I am receiving.
The offer is still out there: want a letter from me? Send me one! If my letter does not make you either 1) laugh out loud, 2) cry real tears, or 3) shake your head slowly because, really, what the heck is up with that, then I will refund your postage!
