n. International Correspondence Writing Month (February)
v. To participate in International Correspondence Writing Month
Without you, InCoWriMo’s just a noun. But with your participation, InCoWriMo becomes a big, fun, wonderful verb.
InCoWriMo challenges each of us to write and mail/deliver one letter, card, note or postcard every day during the month of February.
A letter-a-day? As a challenge? More like a month at Disneyland for Fountain Pen Geeks!
In a modern world where many of us struggle to find good reasons to use our pens, InCoWriMo is just the ticket.
Seeing as how InCoWriMo provides us with a wonderful and fulfilling commitment to use our fountain pens, it should come as no surprise that InCoWriMo is the brainchild of FPGeeks.
We’ve provided InCoWriMo with a separate website (InCoWriMo.org) where you can read the quick introduction, peruse the FAQ’s, and commit to participation by taking the InCoWriMo Challenge.
We’ve also created an InCoWriMo area in the FPGeeks forum (InCoWriMo Forum) where you can add your name to the list of “Who’s in?” and interact with other participants. There may even be some address sharing as we all try to help each other fulfill our InCoWriMo promises.
We’ve got pens. We’ve got ink. We’ve got paper.
Hey… we’ve even got a song!
You put your gold nib in.
You put your gold nib out.
You put your gold nib in,
and you shake it all about.
You do the InCoWriMo
and your turn yourself around,
That’s what it’s all a-bout.
Ok, maybe we won’t mention the song. Just yet.
You’re humming it now, aren’t you?
