    Is January 31 the non-holiday with the smallest number of hand written letters mailed in the entire year?

    Life got sneaky and pulled me away from here and most replies. Finally caught up and back in here, just in time to start up InCoWriMo. Between cleaning the house and applying to grad school, hopefully I can stick with it again this year. I am in the InCo.org book under Sam Weaver

    Ok, definitely trying to participate again this year after missing out last year. First letter to my grandparents today, but I have my address on the website list and looking forward to connecting with some new people now.

    Picked a few victims from InCoWriMo-2018 site, and the letters have been posted.

    I'm still on course...for now. I've posted 8. (Feels almost saintly. )

    (I haven't actually run out of "replies" yet...)

    I've done the required dailies plus a few extra so far... I'm doing a lame sort of close-eyes-wiggle-mouse method of randomizing. Had to buy more international stamps. I've come up on Australia twice!

    In the interests of forward planning, I bought a good batch of unused "E" stamps on eBay during January. They work for Europe up to 20grams weight and Worldwide up to 10grams weight. For US friends, I have to use airmail envelopes and TR paper to get down to 10grams.

    Okay, I gave up on the close-eyes wiggle-mouse technique. Now I've got a mature and scientific rolling the D&D dice method going on

    It hardly seems to matter. A postcard arrived today from Scotland with only a 5p stamp.

    As of this morning twenty have gone out. (this does not include the five that were hand delivered, rather than mailed.) Three new ones arrived in today's mail. One reply is ready, another is in process. I expect all will go no later than Tuesday. (Monday being a postal holiday here in the US)

    I am waaaayyy ahead of the game. Counting the two which arrived today, which I have completed replies to, that brings my count to 25 with a week to go.

    I suppose I should work on replies before sending too new victims

    Not yet. Do you recall when it was sent?
