    Did an international one today, with some decorated paper. (Works to write over, at least!)

    Today's was on some of the Rhodia I put washes of R&K Sketch Ink Lilly on - worked pretty well! I could still mostly see my guide sheet under the paper, and it wrote fine on top.

    I got a response to one of my random ones today! And wrote to me mum. (I was running out of things to say to people I don't know at all).

    Received a Red "Year of the Pig Prosperity Packet" from a new correspondent today. One of my most exotic tuck-ins ever.

    Except for the piece of an alligator several InCo's ago...

    Number 19 in the box for tomorrow.

    Penny for your thoughts: has the InCo address list gotten too big?

    I was discussing this on another forum and the general consensus is that the issue regarding the InCo list is around who to write to. With just a list of names and addresses there's no context unless you have some other potential connection in the name or the address. I had one InCo surprise letter in my mailbox this time because the person happened to travel to where I live so they had something to write about.

    LetterMo has you fill out a basic bio so at least you can search on potential writing topics.

    I narrowed my choices to very small towns in Texas and still got a list of 24, not including my own.

    4 in, one InCo reply (thank you, Voiren), and one out to another tiny Texas town.

    I don't think it's the size of the list itself. It's, as allanorn said, that there is not context for selection. I tend to look at the comments, here or other places I visit to see if I can find people who I think might be interesting. The "Hi. I can't wait to receive lots of letters." posts with nothing else don't do much to attract my interest. And trying to wade through the list is daunting.

    I have been picking people from looking for words or numbers in the address. One book I chose to look for a word or two to find was one of Roald Dahl's .. and that provided a subject to write about. Before lettermo and incowrimo, I tried penpal sites where you have profiles, looked for commonality. Not one initial connection through there has stood the test of time, no more than a year or so. I wrote then to at least 50 people with things in common. It just didn't work for me.
    I have some penpals through postcrossing. I also have a couple assigned by random (not through matching) and they are lovely. Incowrimo has helped me find more lovely people to write to.

    I replied to two today, so am back on track!

    That is 20 out to 18 people, 5 in, of which one random. That's ok

    3 US, 3 elsewhere, the rest UK. I plan to send a few more to different countries in Europe.

    Three letters arrived for me today! Two replies (one from Chrissy ) and one new random one from very far away. I'm just finishing off writing mine.

    I've been trying work out if I should send anyone a digression on random number generation, but I think that may be a bit too niche for a first letter!
