    Default Your Incowrimo expectations

    With February a month away, am curious to know what your expectations of Incowrimo will be. If you've taken part before, did you meet or succeed the expectations you had?....

    I expected to send at least one letter or card each day, and in 2018 I achieved that.

    I'm planning on trying again this year, but it depends how many people I can think of to send something to.

    It seems that something always throws me off track. So I will be back to my perfectly imperfect record, I suppose.

    Officially signed up.
    As I'd mentioned in the other thread, my desk is cleared. I expect to take part and, barring some calamity, I expect to send a letter or more each day! And InCo has always been a real joy.

    Well, I signed up. I expect I will probably miss a day or two somewhere along the line but will see how it goes!

    I think I may need to create a list of possible topics in advance. I'm going to see if anyone I know wants to give me their address so I can write to some known people too.

    I have trouble finding my way around the InCo site. Is there a way to put up a profile or read others' profile as a means of knowing to whom I'm writing?

    Voiren, you can be the topic of an intro letter to a stranger. Just write a bit about yourself and your world. It is always fascinating to meet new people this way!

    I meant a bit more specific than that! Me in general might do for one letter, but I don't want to write the same one to umpteen people! Things like a book I read recently, a show I went to see, a game I played, the place my grandfather lived... (I'm not so good at anecdotes, but if I can think of any).

    If I have a list, I can keep track of what I have and haven't written about (and to whom), and also try to avoid blank page syndrome

    I started with LetterMo and a year later with InCoWriMo way back when. I don't think I had an expectations but I will admit that some of the letters/cards I received were a little disappointing. For those familiar with Postcrossing, some of the messages received were the equivalent of only "Happy Postcrossing" although there was no requirement to write more, nothing to hook you for further correspondence. I know not every missive through the February letter writing projects will yield lifelong correspondence.

    I intend to write letters daily, and will pick a few new victims to inflict correspondence on.
