    Is there a spreadsheet this year again? I didn't see one linked.

    I added my name!
    The way I got there:
    Go to link in post #1. Scroll down and click on photo of letters. Click on "address book" then click on "join in." A form will pop up and you can fill in your info!

    As long as you have enough postage.....but will that ruin the uniqueness of the missives?

    The spreadsheet last year had the advantage of listing people's interests. I enjoy the frisson of finding someone sharing a niche or unusual interest more than generating general, scattershot questions for most of an opening letter.

    A nifty addition to InCoWriMo 2017 is its unique planning calendar for months January and February 2017, listing some feast days and holidays I never knew about!

    Removing myself from the 2017 list. Address changes afoot in February and will be living in a caravan until summer. I'll only be communicating with current pen pals.

    I cannot figure out how to take myself off the actual InCo site....

    I will be trying this year after a couple of years of not trying. I don't post my address, so if anyone wants it, please just pm me.

    I am planning to start with letters to relatives and friends and if I stretch those terms far enough they may get me all the way through the month...

    *heads out to Harbor Freight for a term-stretcher...*

    Did you see the form question "when my address changes, I'd like to let people know by re-filling this form" or you could contact Bruce!?

    The issue is that I will be completely mobile for several months without an address as such. I didn't see a way to contact Bruce, but left a reply to my own posting.

    Hi all-

    I'm participating again this year, but focusing on responding to letters from years past. Sorry I wasn't able to get a spreadsheet going like I did last year... looks like there might be a better alternative now, though! If you are looking for folks to write to, my inbox is always open - it just may take me a while to respond.

    If I owe you a letter, please drop me a PM so I make sure it didn't get lost somewhere. I think I've kept things pretty well together, but 2016 was an emotionally difficult year of family loss. Things have been a bit scattered.
    I am a penpaller and love happy mail. Please PM me for my address, or add yours to my postable: https://www.postable.com/melissakrueger

    I've written my first letter today, but I haven't posted it yet. On the other hand it won't take long to get to Wales.

    Just to clarify...charities are interested in stamps that have been franked? I just assumed the interest was in clean stamps.
    Thanks!
