    Thumbs up 2018 February letter frenzy - InCoWriMo / A handwritten letter every day

    It is almost that time of year again, who is signing up to the February letter writing projects? InCoWriMo has not yet been updated for this year, but https://incowrimo-2018.org/ is in progress.

    Edit... InCoWriMo has been updated https://incowrimo.org/2018/01/incowr...exchange-2018/

    I don't officially sign-up anywhere although I try to send as many as I can. If I don't receive any correspondence to reply to, then I have to think up people to write to.

    Oh, a reminder - if you have participated in previous years here on the forum, maybe you should check your posts in the yearly threads to see if your address is current, or remove it if you do not want to take part this year/have moved.

    I have taken "my" 2018, plus a few as I'm planning to do the previous Monday through the following Sunday.

    But please bear in mind the definition of a plan is; "baseline for change".

    It is fun. Not long now until February.

    I've started drawing up a provisional list of victims. I also have continuing correspondence to reply to.

    Is it cheating to start writing some now and finish them on Feb 1st?

    If you start one early and finish it on a day in February, hooray - your writing more.
    If you pre-write a bunch of letters and deliver them in February, hooray - your writing more.
    If you .... anything that involves putting thoughts into something which transports it to another person, hooray - your making a connection that you wouldn't normally have made.
    If you miss a day (or two), think of all the extra writing you are doing that you normally wouldn't.


    Keep it low stress, high enjoyment, silly, and a joy.

    May your ink not run and you letters bring happiness to all,

    I don't think it is cheating if you are writing to an existing correspondent! However, a letter to someone new might be cheating!

    It would be a kindness to write to first time participants several days in advance so that they get a letter on the first or second. I can remember worrying during the first week my first years participating that I wouldn't receive any letters because no letters came until about a week in, not recognizing that it is snail mail.
