If you were in previous swaps its time to move the journals along.

If this is the first time you're joining this swap you will need a composition journal and your imagination.

What you do is put your Swap-Bot ID and the swap name on the front of the journal. On the back page put your address to send home for when the journal is full. You can decorate if you feel like it.

Next you give your partner a writing prompt or story starter (just an idea it doesn't have to meet any criteria unless the owner of the journal gave directions or you set any for your journal) of any kind. Package up the journal and then wait for partners to be assigned. Once assigned, send them off.

When you get your journal, use the writing prompt to write a short story. Anywhere from 2-10 pages. It may be a little more or less, but give some life to the story, but don't take forever.

Here are a few links to writing prompts here here here here and here Thank you Hollydays for the links. Hope they help everyone!

After you finish your story, go to the next clean page and give a new writing prompt for your next partner. I'll do more of these swaps so everyone can have a little story book sent home to them.

Requirments: Newbies allowed with a well filled out profile. 4.9 rating. No unexplained 1s or 3s in the past 6 months. I might be able to angel, but I really hope I don't have to.

Any questions/suggestions, just ask. Happy Swapping.

This sounds like a great swap! How many more of these will there be in the series? -xxx-

Can there be an US only swap for this?

Logodae 12/17/2012 #

Newbie here! I hope I'm accepted into the swap, I've already got a mini composition book ready to go! ^_^

@vickygr Hopefully a lot more if they go well.

@PukeFacedFreak there is a US only one in the Write Now group

@Logodae Please make sure it's a full sized composition book.

Aw, shoot. Well, I'm sure I can get my hands on one... I just really like the minis, they're so cute!

Hm, I didn't notice that it has to be a composition book. :/ I don't even really know exactly what it is, even though I read about it in Wikipedia... I already bought a Moomin notebook, I thought it wouldn't be too expensive to send because it's not so heavy. :/

Mine is a spiral bound covered notebook. Looks quite professional but it is not a composition journal.... is this okay?

elvenfire 12/22/2012 #

I can still buy a hardcover notebook if that's okay and if I have to. Sorry for not reading the instructions carefully enough. I only got the general idea when I signed up. :)
