September stats

Compared to my usual output, September was pretty pathetic. But I was busier than I ever imagined... for two weeks in a row, I saved all my mail 'til the end of the week and didn't even READ it for days, let alone write any.

So, the paltry roundup:



Total output

Yep, that was less than half of my August output. C'est la vie, I do my best.

I received 75 items in September. 18 of them were Postcrossing postcards, and 15 of the items I sent were Postcrossing postcards. (For once, I received more than I sent on Postcrossing, though I've still sent my usual 13 more than received.) There was only one day - a Tuesday - where I received no personal mail at all. At least, I think that is the case... there were multiple days when I didn't make it to my mailbox (that super-busy thing), and picked up many days' mail at once. So it's possible that there were more days when no new mail accumulated, but I don't have any way of knowing that.

My average - that's average, not guaranteed - response time is now 4 months. I'm still making it through some May items in my piles, and I'm well aware that it's now October. Oh well. Haven't I said before that I no longer have any pretense of catching up? I just write letters, as I can.
