My best friend is in the same situation! crazy! But, he tells her that he would rather hear all about her boring day than not hear anything at all. So just keep on writing!

I have that problem sometimes too when I don't really go anywhere or do anything but I'll just write what I did that day. What time I woke up, what I watched, what the kids did, anything funny I saw or heard and just elaborate on that. It's not very exciting for him to read but even my boring everyday life is a little mental escape for him. If not I can write really long letters about our past and old times, all the funny, romantic, or crazy times we've had.
So I hope that helps

Hey, I find when I can't write, I look up jokes, (the day brightners here are awesome) and he likes them, I write to him like he's right there, he finds it great but sometimes (like last cple weeks) I just have not been able to write, another good thing you can do is the couple's "gettin to know your man" questions, they are in the bf/husband section, they take up a lot of space and give you's something to talk about.

That's what I've been doing and I've only been doing this since Jan 15th. I also carry post cards (all he can get in jail) in purse, so I'll write the date at the top then if I do something I write the time and say " just sniffed the apples while at the market to make sure they were fresh"
He knows I can be very silly.

When I have this problem, which is getting more and more often. I just sent him some intresting things out of th elocal paper (so he can keep up with home news) Go online and look up couple surverys or pull the quizzes out of cosmo :P (he likes them lol).
Somedays I hardly write more than "typical boring day here. Love you teddybear"...I had to stop mailing the letters everyday b/c he said he liked longer (and I can't blame him) letters.

One time we started a crazy story, I would write a small chapter and then he would write one back. We spelt all the names backwards. My name became Airtlek. We had about 15 chapters eventually, and it was the craziest thing you ever read.

I have thad this problem to lately. Sending like 3 letters a week aint easy.
I liked that idea about making up a storie=)

I have Fibromyalgia so I don´t work nor study at the moment, so there´s not that many things that´s going on here that I can write about.

I love getting his letter though, he always comesup with things to write,and he always makes me smile. I just want my letters to him to make him feel as great as his letters makes me feel.....

I haven't run out of things to talk about because I can always come to PTO and get some suggestions. Some months back, someone on here suggested leaving each letter with 3 questions for him to answer, and then he answers and asks 3 questions back. We have been doing this since October and it really opened up a lot of room for dialogue, discussion, debate, and getting to know each other on different levels. I really appreciated that suggestion.

I think everyone hits this problem at some point. You know writing every week and sometimes more than once is pretty hard to maintain.

Anyways I use the questions thing that was mentioned earlier after getting the idea from someone else on PTO. He really likes that and I think he has used it to ask some questions that maybe he might have had little diifculty asking out of the blue. That makes for interesting conversation answering the questions and then asking a few more back.

I also talk about stupid stuff you know like where the seasons are at, what is happening in my garden, articles I read in a magazine, films that I saw advertised that I will probably never get to see. I tell him about walks on the beach and walks around the store looking for fruit and vegetables! I am sure he will love whatever you write and the trick is to just keep going. Good luck.

We do the same exact thing... haha... But whenever I do get to a point where I run out of things to say, I may send him a cute card or lyrics, ect. He never gets tired of pics! I can send him a 5 line letter, but if pics are included, he pretty satisfied... esp. the hott ones! Hope this helps.

I had this at one point because some weeks I have a hectic on and then I will have a period where things are just dead and I don't have much going on so I just throw in a question which will get him thinking and generally from that he will ask me a bunch to get my view on things. The other thing I started doing was when I send him a book, I get myself the same one so we can read it at he same time and then discuss it which is good because we see things differently.

I would suggest just mixing it up and not every letter has to be an essay. Sometimes I write a book and other times it's just a page and a half. I know my baby is just happy to get a letter from, he isn't fussed about how long it is.

I feel the same way. I want to write hime daily or at least 3 times a week and I want to tell him everything that has happened. But unfortunately there is not much going on here and I do not know what I should/could write all the time. I'm sure he would not be angry with short letters (the main thing is that I ever write) but it pi**es me...
Because of that I try to find alternatives that I can send him. Of course I'll tell him all the stuff that happened during the day but I also send him short stories, quotes...everything I think he could/would like...

Well, this is not like a 'real' letter, but at least a letter. And he has something do read/do..

I typically receive his letter on Thursdays, and I write him Friday and mail my letter to him on Saturday. He usually receives my letter on Monday or Tuesday. And because I respond to his letter I always have things to write. He is pretty good about keeping the conversation going, he always has good topics, he will write questions that I must answer and send back. He writes me poems, and since i cant write poems I send him lyrics of songs that make me think of him. It also helps that we lost track of each other for 12 years (he was my hs crush and after graduation we lost track of each other, we have this 2nd chance and we plan on making the best of it). We are getting reaquianted and we write each other every week, and because of this time seems to be flying by for us.

write stories, fantasies, dreams, even the everyday mundane things. I finally realized that my guy just wants a paper that says I love him each and every day so I write even about cooking, walking the dogs, and I send pictures of even just streets, flowers, anything and then I write a big giant paragraph on how much I love him. That makes him smile.

I try to remember that even though my day seems monotonous and uneventful, it can be a breath of fresh air to my man, who doesn't get to experience the little things anymore. Somedays I vent about work, friends, everything...as if he were at home waiting for me to come home and tell him about my day. If my day is uneventful and I don't want to talk about it, I write about our past and our memories. If I am out of ideas...I send pages of jokes from the internet or print articles from our local paper.

We go through this too sometimes we have TONS to say and sometimes our letters are short. As long as they get the point across he'll be glad to hear from you no matter how short I include riddles, jokes, the details of my boring day, how I almost tackled the post lady because she didn't have any mail for me, I send pictures of goofy things. I'm always on the hunt to find things to send him to make him smile
