Default Do you write every day??

Just curious if you write your SO everyday? once a week? or do you even write a letter?

I normally write him a letter every other day because he loves to get letters from me, and actually asks me when ever he calls if I sent him a letter lol and I said what on earth would I even write about, because I feel like I am repeating the same stuff all the time lol that and I have pretty much already told you over the phone, but he doesn't care he just loves to get letters lol. Honestly I don't mind, but at the same time its like I don't know what to write.

I write my letters a bit like a diary and write something every day but only send them every other day. He does the same and sends my letters once or twice a week. I asked him if he ever gets bored reading my letters as I think I maybes repeat a lot of things. I just tell him about my day, what my kids are up to, about our grandkids, whats in the news and about our soccer team.

I write almost everyday, sometimes just about the day, something I read online, trivial things, how I feel, asking him something. I collect these pages and send them off about once a week together with some artwork and pictures.

Before we separated I wrote and mailed out every single day. Usually more than one piece of mail. I really don't suggest that though.

I did when I first started I did like an above poster it was more like a journal of my day, back then he was in county and I had a lot to write as visits were 1 a week for about 1 hour. This was back when I thought it was being romantic and lived for letters and calls!!!

In the beginning, yes and multiple pieces. Now a few times a week. We talk on the phone 2x a day, so there is not a lot to write.

It's feast or famine with me, I either write a lot or hardly nothing. But we e-mail on CorrLinks everyday so normally anything I would write in a letter I already told him. Sometimes I feel very repetitive.

I used to write every day. But now it's a few times a week. But we talk on the phone and email everyday so that's good enough.

I use Jpay for the most part because it takes like 4 days for him to get a letter. I don't have much to say since I don't really do much out of the house besides go to work so it's just once a week. I send a hand written letter about every 2 weeks or so.

When he first went in he didn’t have a tablet yet, so we wrote a serious amount of letters, more than one a day some weeks. During high volume work hours, I’d do JPay letters instead because I can type over 110wpm and writing took a lot more time.
Now, he has his tablet, that’s usually between 5-10 messages a day, one snail mail letter every couple of weeks, and one or two JPay letters a week. We’re silly lol

My husband has been in 12 years and I have written every single day so far and will write everyday until he is home. We talk on the phone 10-15 times a day. I visit every weekend and holiday. I can't get enough of him and vice versa. He writes me every day too. I have all the letters in boxes. Will be nice to look back at them one day when he is home and we are back together again. We were inseparable before he went to prison too.

Oh my goodness, my hat is off to you - that is some serious writing right there!

I've never written every day....gosh, the most was 3-4 times a week during our first couple of years (we are MWI) and now I must admit writing doesn't appeal to me that much. We speak on the phone almost daily, sometimes twice a day, sometimes skip a day. Honestly, I don't even think I could do more. Don't know if I am getting tired of this at times - still love him, but I guess I am not really built for the constant contact thing (sorry babe, haha)

My ex called 5 times a day when he was in county and it was enough to drive me absolutely insane! Don't have time for that. Nothing to talk about LOL! Like Sarianna said, hats off to you!

Holy smokes. Calls 10-15 times a day! Wow!! If it was free heck yeah I would be fine with that! Otherwise I could not find myself spending that kind of money. I don't even do 1 call. I even disconnected our house phone and never registered it. I will stand by my husbands side by writing, visiting, and sending him money but I will not make his prison stay an investment. I guess I'm not a dedicated prison wife and practice tough love. He made a decision to commit his crime and left me to maintain our household and put our daughter through college alone. So umm yeah. You get what you get.

I don't save his letters either. I read them and trash them after I respond to them. Does that make me a bitch? I don't want to remember this time of our lives. It's heartbreaking. My husband is in prison. That's not a great memory and a incredibly sad part of our lives. Not something I want to look back at once it's over.

I write almost every day, but only send them out twice or three times a week. He loves getting mail and I try to be creative adding quotes, songs, jokes and pictures so it won't get boring.
