There is a proverb that reads: "The tale is not beautiful if it is not shared". The value of folk tales lies in their retelling and should this tradition of handling down tales end, something valuable will be lost forever.

Once you have received you journal from your partner in round 1, you would have written in a story/folk tale of your country. You can even before or after you have written it in, add a bit information about yourself. In this round the journals will be sent on to the next destination. Please write in which round your story is being done in.

If this is your first round: For this swap, you will get a journal or notebook of any kind. You will put your Swap-Bot ID and swap-name on the front of the journal. On the back page put your address (to send home for when the journal is full) as well as you e-mail address. Next you will write down a folk tale from your own country. It may be more than 2 pages. You can decorate if you want to. After you are done, you will package up the journal and send it on to your partner.

The idea is to get a journal back filled with interesting folk tales from other countries.

Requirements: 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.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Hi again @Apelser apparently the notebook I am supposed to write on for this round is stuck in Customs and I won't be able to get it till next week. I will send as soon as this has been resolved. Thanks!

UPDATE : Hello again to all of you. Unfortunately, Natasa's notebook is still not yet with me. I went to Customs yesterday and sad to say her notebook was not one of the two parcels I claimed. I have a feeling it had been missent to so many different countries (like what usually happens to other delayed parcels especially if they are quite large). Sorry for this terrible delay @Apelser I'm supposed to send to you but how can I write & send if the notebook is not yet with me :))

UPDATE : @Apelser until now, the notebook from the last round is not yet with me. My previous partner has sent it but somehow it hasn't reached me. But again I have received another notice from Customs and I am really counting that one of the packages I have to claim is this notebook. Will send when I get the notebook ASAP. Again, I reiterate that the delay in sending is really beyond my control.
