There are two postcards waiting to be sent again. One is a new official, to Poland, a drawing of windmills. The other one is an official to Germany - this official has been travelling for almost a month already, and still has not arrived, so I will send a new postcard. The new one is a picture of a cow in dusk and myst.

One of my officials is almost expired, but I will not send another one. The receiver has not been online for a month, has only received and sent a few postcards, and does not respond to my message if he really did not receive it. So the chance is too big that it will not be registered on the site even when he does receive the postcard.

Postcard Addiction

Since I got a lot of postcards from my mother a few weeks ago, my postcard addiction seems to have become even worse. Or better, it started earlier that day, when I opened my second Postcrossing account. I know, it is better to have only one account, but the postcards I sent with my first one were on their way for so long already, and I simply longed to send postcards!

Off course, as you will always see, in the days after that many of my postcards were received at the same time. So the 'free' postcards I got came in very, very handy. Meanwhile I heard when I came home: 'Honey, there were postcards for you AGAIN!' Today I promised myself to stop writing that many cards. I'll put my second account on inactive. The cards I have to send become too many, I have reached the top of my budget.

For a couple of weeks I've had the luxury of two postcrossing accounts. With pain in my heart I will have to part with one of them. I will cry some silent tears this evening.

At last, November

The first of November started, and so did my novel. I have written over 800 words now, almost half of what I should write each day. And a new novel-excerpt: I wrote the last one just before all was erased, and I forgot to save it somewhere. Lets say it was a starters mistake.

So, now I will write on, and on, and on. Lets start with that at this very moment, while I should work at school-projects. ;-)
