This quirky little swap is my first ever as a coordinator.

It's pretty simple. You are going to write a letter to your partner . But you are going to write the letter from the point of view of your pet.

Example: Hello. My name is Zoe. I'm a gray and black striped tabby cat with green eyes. I love to play and sleep in sunbeams. I grew up in a shelter. It was ok there.... and so on.

I'd like this letter to have some length to it. Please do not just write a note. But it does not have a required length.

Please no recent and unexplained 1s or 3s. I will be checking.

This is such a wonderful idea :D

Yes! Now I just have to decide which of my cat characters has the most to say...Clem always has something on her mind, but I can't let her hog it all. Tatum? Ursula? Peep? LT? Rudy? Buddy? Emma? Kid? No, not Kid - she was the protagonist in "Saving Lemuel". Decisions, decisions.

my rabbit's thoughts are WAY too creepy for this one, I'm sure. Secretly he's a mad scientist, you know ....

just going to watch for now...

OMG! I am going to love this, but I think my partner may think I'm crazy because I have an entire fictional life for my pet bwaahahaaa. The things I do....

I can't believe so many have signed up for this already. I think since so many of you have multiple pets that I may do a few of these over time.Just to keep things interesting and fresh.

pamsangels68 01/18/2012 #

I'm going to do this swap ( and also think it's a great exercise for my kids also, so hopefully my partner will get several letters. (from me and my kids pets)

My cat does better on a keyboard than with a pen or pencil. Can it be done via wordprocessor, or should I handwrite what she's keyboarded?

I think you can go ahead and let her type. No need to be your kitty's scribe.

Adlpated 01/20/2012 #

Thank you. She'll be less inhibited if she can just print it out, and scrunch it up so all I have to do is put it in an envelope to post it. I just hope the printer doesn't jam. Cats clearing printer jams isn't a pretty thing.

How cute, does it matter if you use swear words?

ErikaG 01/20/2012 #

@Mandii79 I would take a look at your partner's profile before getting started. If you think your partner might be offended by foul language, please don't use it.

My intention was to have this be a factual letter but it seems all of your imaginations are going crazy with this. So I'll leave it open to doing whatever you'd like.

Keep an eye out for a monthly or bimonthly fiction writing event from me.

PukeFacedFreak 01/20/2012 #

This will be my very first swap and I'm pretty excited about it! Thanks so much for letting newbs join. :)

KarmasBullet 01/21/2012 #

Helloo :) This seems cute, and I have an adorable pet who would love to join ;D

Candyn29 01/21/2012 #

I think if my husbands cat could talk he would sound just like Tim Gunn

PukeFacedFreak 01/23/2012 #

Yay! Partners are assigned. I wrote my letter yesterday so it's all ready to go!

KarmasBullet 01/23/2012 #

How long should it be?

ErikaG 01/23/2012 #

@KarmasBullet I don't like to put limits on letters. It can't just be a note in big handwriting. Make it take a few minutes to sit down and read. I thought maybe 2 sheets of notebook paper, front and back if wide ruled, 2 sheet if it's college ruled.

KarmasBullet 01/23/2012 #

Put it in the mail! :) Cheers!

Goodness me, at first I wasn't receiving emails from Swap-bot when I should have been (that's working now) and now when I click send it's not clicking it. I just tried again this was sent on the due date (unless it was a Sunday then it would have been sent the day before).
