A series I'd love to set in motion in this group is "Lunch With..." and the theme would be a different desired conversation with someone over a midday meal, like a member of royalty, favorite author, historic figure, deceased relative, artist, etc. Partners will share where the conversation would take place and what food would be served, what kinds of questions or opinions they'd like to share, why they chose that figure, and so on.

The first swap will be a conversation with a fictional literary character. Write a letter (typed or hand written) explaining who your character is, what book they are from, and why you would like to sit down to talk with them. Describe the questions you would ask, the opinions you would share, and where you would like the conversation to take place (in the character's fictional world or somewhere in ours).

These types of letters cannot be written in just a few sentences, make sure your letter has enough information for your partner to get a real understanding of the whos, whats, and whys of your desired conversation. You can use stationary, notebook paper, note or greeting cards, or computer printer paper. Typing your letter and gluing it inside a note card is also acceptable.

Please remember to put the swap name and your username somewhere on the swap so you can be rated. Also, please remember to send and rate on time.

If you have an idea for a future swap in this series, please, let me know in the comments below! I'll make a note of suggestions and use them in future swaps.
