    Reposting from my comment on the "Did You Correspond Today" thread.

    In a word: "Yep". Have ordered new return address stickers and new stamps for the occasion over on Etsy.

    Tooled up and dialed in!

    February 2012 was my first month of letters, so this is my 8th year of February letter craziness.

    I don't like to post my name and address details on the InCoWriMo site, but I always take part. If any FPG member wants my details, I'm happy to oblige....

    I'm ready. As far as I know, my particulars are still on the InCoWriMo list; I'll doublecheck after they open access on the 18th. I'm not making any vows about writing a letter a day, but I'm going to try hard to have an empty incoming slot in my caddy at the end of the month.
    In my mug: Sailor 21 P-P M, Cross Solo M, Online Calligraphy, Monteverde Invincia F, Hero 359 M, Jinhao X450 M, Levenger T-W M, Jinhao 159 , Platinum Balance F, TWSBI Classic 1.1, Platinum Preppy 0.3 F, 7 Pilot Varsities, Speedball penholder, TWSBI 580 USA EF, Pilot MR, Ahab 1.1, another Preppy 0.3, Preppy EF 0.2, ASA Sniper F, Click Majestic F, Kaweco Sport M, Pilot Prera F, Baoer 79 M, Hero 616 M, Jinhao X750

    31 and counting

    I mentioned in the other thread, but yes, I've joined. There may be sketches on (at least some) letters instead of ink reviews in Feb!

    I printed some new return address labels, getting myself organised... Will leave it until nearer the day to pick victims... Still writing to victims from 2014 onwards!

    I've lost a few "previous victims" over the years but might pick up some more.

    I'm on the inco2019 list, but is there a list of fountain-pen-fan people? I was looking here but didn't find an obvious addresses thread?

    That site's list has grown large and unwieldy, and with no profiles and not even pens in common, it's too hard to figure what to write. I'm not going to just send "hi, happy incowrimo" postcards, either

    No list of FP users or profile. We used to post our own list here, but not lately. I do post my address here and others offer to pm theirs if you ask.

    But, for what it's worth, I mostly got FP letters from those on the official InCo list.

    So most of my new Etsy stuff has arrived for InCo: address labels and three new rubber stamps.

    What is everyone's strategy for picking new names from the list? This year I might write to every small town in Texas to get to know my new home state better, the rest will each be sent to a different non-US address.

    Last year, for some, I picked trees - so, fruit trees, plus oak, pine, etc....

    Either the name or address. I didn't write to every tree though.

    I must be dumb because I cannot figure out their website. Like, where is the list? How do you join? What is it exactly?
