Description:

This swap is fun on a variety of levels! I know many people are participating in the pen pal/snail mail hobby, and if you write your letters like I do, your letters tend to be focused and organized.

For this swap, you will write a letter, to ONE partner, based solely on stream of consciousness. Whatever enters your mind, no matter how random or nonsensical it will be to your partner, write it. This letter should be written in one sitting as not to lose the stream so the length requirement is reasonable: one standard 8X11 page (front only) or 1 letter set (2 smaller pages and a matching envelope).

Letters can be handwritten OR typed. Some have expressed that typing is better for them in regards to stream of consciousness so they can keep up with their thoughts and their partner can read the letter. My suggestion, if you do so choose to type, is to maybe decorate the page and sign your name by hand.

These letters do NOT require a response. The initial topic/stream is writer's choice, but perhaps look at your partner's profile to begin your letter based on a shared topic of interest. Feel free to decorate the letter and the envelope!

Must have a rating no lower than a 4.98, and if any recent 1s or 3s are not explained in your profile, please contact me to discuss. Newbies are welcome as long as you have a well constructed/detailed profile (I DO check).

Have fun!!

The first letter was a hit, and so, I will host it monthly, either once or twice a month. If anyone thinks this particular deadline is unreasonable due to upcoming holidays, let me know, and I can adjust. Also, I will angel if need be :D

I had so much fun doing the other one (got my letter today and a comment from the woman I sent to) that I have to do it again!

An easy letter to write and I think a short turn around time is good -- then people don't forget about the swap or keep procrastinating and forget about it.

@NancyKz I'm so glad!! Everyone seemed to enjoy it :D Thanks for joining again!! I think I will definitely make this an ongoing swap.

Can someone tell me what types of subjects were covered in this before? I know it says may not make sense to your partner but I don't want them to send the paddy wagon to my house either lol

@kboutiette It's stream of consciousness so it's whatever comes to your mind, as it comes to your mind. The part that may not make sense to your partner is the transition between thoughts.
