I write to Jamie every day. I try to send new pics atleast once a week. I've gotten into the routine that I write to him while I'm watching TV before I go to bed. I tell him everything, just like it was before. We never kept secrets and could say whatever was on our minds. That's how we stil are now. *~* Only 412 days left, my love *~*

I send Stephen something, a letter, a card, something every other day. He loves getting mail and I'm starting to think he has stock in the united states postal service

Talking I love to write

I send at least 1 letter a day, sometimes more than that. It depends on my mood. I actually sent him 4 letters on Wednesday. I had a lot to say, LOL.

I write at least once a day. Plus I send post cards. I send things from the web every great once in awhile. Pictures of things, pictures of us, etc. It keeps him going and the mail flows pretty easy so we write the way we have conversations.

I write once a week. I was writing more but I am school again and homework is kicking my butt. He understands though. I also send him print outs of the internet, books, cut outs of magazines.

For all you people who write your guys everyday...do you talk to them everyday too? I'm just wondering because I don't write my man everyday. I find that I'm so exhausted at the end of the day, but when I do write a letter it's about 5 pages long. I do send him stuff 3 times a week though and I talk to him everyday at least 3 times a day and sometimes I feel that have nothing left to say for the day and when I do, I put it in a letter or if I'm feeling emotional, I'll put it in a letter. Should I feel badly about not writing more often?

We both write everyday. I write every night and every morning. He writes all throughout his day and sometime he doesn't write on Fridays. I send him puzzles of all kinds and once in awhile I send him newspaper clippings. But I'm sure that when we can talk on the phone things will slow down. However we have been writting daily since March. But I do miss hearing his voice. I hope once he gets out of confinement he gets the phone number approved

Cool Whenever I Can...

Basically, I am a writer by trade, so with all the other stuff I have to write on a day-to-day basis what with the articles, manuscripts, etc., I get burned out a lot or too exhausted to write him ALL THE TIME. I've had moments when I'll mail off a letter and start another one that will go out the next morning...when it's an insatiable flow of communication...but then there are the times when I can go a week or two without writing. I just write as the feelings hit or when necessary to send something he's requested.

I write my man every single day, hoping that he will get some mail every single day - although the mailman doesn't always follow through. Yes, I talk to him every day too. And I visit him every other weekend. I just can't get enough of him, and writing him makes me feel as though he's here having a conversation with me.

three times a week! i have weeks that will be everyday! but most of the times its 2-4 times a week! but always throw in post cards, little internet print-outs, pictures! but on the books, he alway wants me to read the same book that i send him and i cant always do that! so its once a month a new book! but if i wasnt for him, i'd probably not read at all unless i had to!

I write everyday even if its just a quick letter saying i love & miss you--my letters, pictures, poems, cards, lyrics etc are what keep him going---now that he is outta county we dont get to talk on the phone or get visits so our letters are all we have--he also writes me daily
