Now we are firmly in 2020, anyone thinking of throwing their hat in the ring for the February letter writing madness?

I will take part, but prefer to not put my address up on the forum. :)

Same as last year -- I won't be actively seeking new pen pals, but I will happily respond to to anyone who writes to me.

Pity PO boxes are frightfully expensive here...

Last year was such a bust, Iím not joining in this year. The list seems too big and thereís nothing but geography to go on. It would be nice if there were a brief ďabout meĒ section for each potential pen pal.

Sigh. Iím sad about this.

Some people wrote things in the comments, but the comments have to be approved first on the one site... Oh, and hopefully that will be up and running proper for February. As for the main site, I dislike the way the comments are displayed with Disqus... much harder than joining a forum and being able to use the search function.

I owe you about a dozen letters. If you have moved since 2017 can you re PM me an address. If you are still at same residence with the business you purchased I have an address and will try to catch up with a letter or postcard.

I've never tried it, but I could. But like Chrissy, I don't/won't post my mailing address.

As I write, not looking likely that the older project, LetterMo, will be up and running again (technical difficulties). The alternate inco site is delayed (hopefully all will be well... ). As for inco itself, well, last year, the site was updated in the last week of January. Hopefully, fun can be had elsewhere... wink wink! :pound:

If anyone wants to exchange letters with me I'm game. My profile on this forum has some info about me.

LetterMo is up and running. There are other sites running some February letter fun too.

I will be doing Incowrimo again - I have a fair pile of letters to reply to (ahem), and a couple of people from the pen club to write to. If you don't have my address and want it, PM me!

PM me with your mailing address for the 2020 InCoWriMo if you need a random letter.

I would love to participate and write to new pen pals! I live in Barcelona. PM if you are looking for a pen pal this year!

So, did the InCo 2020 site ever launch?

Morgaine
January 26th, 2020, 11:25 AM
The alternate site probably won't (health/circumstance). But, I think inco might be... soon. A comment has disappeared (spam) on the 2019 address disqus.... [edit - wishful thinking, although the address exchange page was up on the 28th January 2019 for last year]

P.S. Some old addresses are up on at least one of the old spreadsheets and threads from previous years...

And Eric has created the page for the 2020 Address exchange... Better late than never!
