Enthusiasm for this project definitely waned throughout the final quarter of 2019, but I did send 8 more letters.
One went to an author.
Five went to friends/family.
Two went to individuals who had gone above and beyond in providing services.
All eight were sent via the Royal Mail, with California as the furthest destination.
The one to California was returned to me, marked addressee unknown. This was a letter I’d written to an author and I’d sourced her mailing address via her Social Media manager.
In total I wrote 41 thank-you letters in 2019, below my target of one letter a week. I think that taken as a whole, it was a worthwhile endeavour, if only to make a dent in my hoard of stationary. Only a few letters went unacknowledged.
