He writes at least once a week; sometimes twice...and his letters are usually right around two pages long. But he calls every day....twice a day most days (1/2 hour for each call).

It really depends, sometimes several letters in a week, sometimes 2 weeks between a letter. It has become more sporadic since he is no longer in the SHU and can make phone calls.

Mine HAS to get my letter FIRST before he writes a reply. So annoying!! He says he does that because he needs to know that I still want him. And even then, the most he can cough up is three pages at the most, when I easily can write at least 10 pages with no problem. And I don't even have as much time on my hands as he has! I mean, what else do they do there all day. It is extremely frustrating to count days in my head to figure out when he must have gotten my letter and writing a response, and seeing nothing in my mailbox for days ;(

He writes every day. The length of his letters...it just depends. Sometimes 7 pages. Sometimes 25. I complain if I get too many 6 or 7 page letters. I love our conversations. I cherish his words.

He writes at least once a week and sometimes more. Sometimes it will just be a page to let me know he is thinking about me and other times it might be 10 pages long, but most of the time is is at least 3 pages once a week.

On average, every other day. Sometimes more/sometimes less. Our "standard" is about 5+ pages per letter. I do get a lot of the "just thinking about you", "damn it, I can't sleep" , "something funny just happened" notes. Creative writing projects, poetry, fill-in-the-blank stories...all kinds of stuff. He fills letter boxes up quickly.

When we only have contact through letters (like right now) he sends 3-4 letters per week, usually about 6 pages long.

When we have phone access we talk every day so our letter writing drops off drastically. Maybe one every 7-10 days and they're usually one or two page "just thinking of you" notes.

Because we talk 2-3 a day. He doesn't write. We send greeting cards to one another on special occasions, but that's it.

If his phone or contact privileges were compromised, than he'd write once a week.

Ok so he writes at least 3-4 times/week. When there's a LOT to talk about or he's missing me a lot then it's everyday. Now that he's out the box though I'm guessing it'll be less letters and more phone calls...which is fine!

He's sporadic with his letters writing isn't really his thing. His letters normally range between 3-6 pages in length. Sometimes I get 3-4 a month plus cards. Other times I am lucky to get 1-2 a month. Last month I got 2 letters and 2 cards. This month I have received 1 card and no letters so far. I write him everyday and my letters normally are 5-12 pages long handwritten and 2-4 pages typed. We email multiple times a day and have phone calls so I don't mind that he is a slacker in the snail mail department because the letters I do get are worth the wait.

Talking

Sometimes its more often if he has the stamps to do so, but its at least once a week. Lol he gets so many letters from me that he never runs out of things to respond too. All of his letters are at least 2 pages long front and back.

He writes me whenever he is able to but it varies and his letters vary as well. His first letter was a page long and he sent me a birthday card since my birthday was on December 20th and his second letter was 2 pages long and I wrote him back a 4 page letter since we recently got back in contact with each other after losing touch for so long. I only got a phone call from him twice last month and we have been emailing each other several times a day last month. He is currently in the SHU so he can't email or call me as of right now so the only way that we are communicating with each other is by mail. I wish I could write him everyday but I just went back to school on January 11th since this is my 5th year at the same community college that I am currently at. I got to go back in August to start my 6th year there. I am taking 12 credit hours so I am considered a full time student so there are lots of days that I am super tired and super busy due to my 2 classes on campus and 2 classes online. He understands about my school situation so there might be times where there could be weeks to months until I can send him a letter.

He "writes" something every day but only mails it out once a week. Letters range from 3-5 pages just depending on whats happening, how he's feeling, etc.

He writes every other day, average 12-16 pages, but we talk every Saturday and Sunday. If the mail from the institution was consistent and my letter did not pile up every 2 weeks we could have a normal dialogue.
