    Default InCoWriMo 2017

    With only 3 months away and several major events and celebrations in between, it's not too early to start thinking about InCoWriMo 2017.

    Moving forward one year at a time, the annual letter writing event returns thanks to the great community that has grown up around it.

    Ready to jump in, but, as you mention, many major events upon us before then!

    I loved what we had set up here this past year with the spread sheet. Not only was it organized I found that I was able to send out more letters than the year before and find people if I needed their address again for whatever reason.

    I'm very happy to see Babylonic Cuneiform being promoted as one of the scripts for InCoWriMo 2017, but I am worried whether our modern postal systems will be able to deliver my baked clay tablets reliably.

    Maybe if you put Do Not Bend, and Fragile on the tablet. But that could also mean that they would completely trash it.

    Let us hope the governmental systems have not been overtaken by then. I don't know if people would allow the Pony Express, what with the animal abuse allegations.

    I am looking forward to it, I had fun with last year being my first, and letter writing helps de-stress in between long study sessions on campus. Sometimes I wonder if people think me strange with letters and paper and pens spread all over the entire table in the library. Then I realize I don't care what they think.

    At 6 weeks away, they seem to have been keeping track of the events and celebrations while meanwhile an increasing number of names are appearing on the list. I hear the clay will be dry enough on the tablets that they will be able to start posting this years addresses on January 18th. Have started to clear the decks and stocking up already.

    2017 will be my first InCoWriMo! I'm reading about it now, to get the hang of it, and look forward to participating, especially because I just started the FP thing, and don't have any Pen Pals just yet...
    But I think I won't be able to write one letter a day. Classes start on February, and things get pretty busy in the University. Still, gonna try and do as many as I can!

    Like DaveBj and frmamede, I'll do what I can. Classes start in January, and I think the end of A term is at the end of February, so I don't know that I can get 28 letters out. But I'm willing to try and will answer (eventually) all the letters I receive.

    I can envisage one short note from students to another student...

    "Oops, I fell asleep during the 9am Monday lecture, can I photocopy your lecture notes please?"

    Good luck everyone, with letters and studies!

    I will probably participate but will sign up nearer the date (things are possibly afoot).
    I am a Penpaller and Correspondent. I have a blog. I have a snail mail forum for discussion and postal challenges....
    Best wishes,

    Speaking of INCOWRIMO... I've participated since 2013 and I am wavering for this year. I'll decided closer to the date. But, today I bit the bullet and discarded hundreds of letters. I've kept every letter I've received since this all began and as some of you know my correspondence has been prodigious. So many people with who I've corresponded who at some point stopped writing back without a word. I answer every letter (there has been but one exception for which I'm sorry.) One or two correspondences ended by mutual decision, we just didn't have much in common, but for scores of others over these three years letters just stopped. I suggest that if you do not want to continue a correspondence you politely beg off, no hard feelings, no reason needed. Meanwhile, the recycling bin ate well tonight.

    i have ordered note cards for 2017 so i think im ready.

    writingrav - wavering?!? say it isnt so. i know how you feel though, i went thru my letters toward the end of the summer and shredded the ones i havent heard from in a while. Certainly no hard feelings here either, just means more space for other letters
