I love this idea, it's a lot of fun, and I'm not giving up! Give it a try, ok? Please? :)

This is a journal swap but it is light weight. You can mail from the USA to an International address for just the one ounce, $1.15 stamp. Your journal will not get lost, because you will only be sending the pages you write, not a full journal. You can join as many or as few rounds as you wish, and collect your swap pages in a folder or binder.

4.98 or above rating, no unresolved 1's or 3's. Newer swappers with a well filled out profile with at least 3 sections are welcome to join with at least 5 completed, rated type 2 & 3 swaps

You will have 1 partner to send to, and the swap is International.

I participated in the Shared Journal Experience that is being hosted by @AmericanHeriess currently, and I love the idea of sharing a journal that way. But I like to do International swaps. Sending a journal - and trusting the postal system to not loose it! - can be problematic. So, with her ok, I came up with this idea. It is lower cost, and lower risk - no journal to loose, and if angeling needs to be done, it is easier than to replace a full book. (I trust swappers, but don't trust the postal system!)

You will create 3 journal entries. A biography, a journal entry, and answer a journal prompt, but send only those pages to your partner.

Details You may hand write or type your journal pages, but need to use 8.5x11/ A4 sized paper. Decoration is up to you, not a requirement.

You may use both sides of the sheet of paper, and you may fold the pages neatly to fit into a standard business sized envelope.

This swap is not profile based, so you can start on it now.

Each journal entry should be a full pageminimum in length. You may, of course, write more. This IS a journal swap, so you have to be ready to write.

Page 1 is a biography of you. Tell more than what is on your profile page, but you don't have to share details you aren't comfortable sharing. (If you are paired up with the same partner as another round, use your bio page to give different details, picture collage of your family/life, do some 'top 10 of me' type lists - you don't have to write your same bio again and again.)

Page 2 is your journal entry. Talk about your past week or month, what you have on your mind, share some ideas, thoughts. Recount a story. A standard journal entry.

Page 3 is your journal prompt. Choose 1-2 of the following journal prompts to write about:

Write a poem about your first (or worst) heartbreak

Pretend that you're living your ultimate dream. It could be regarding your job, lifestyle, home, anything, but write about a typical day in the life.

If you had the courage to do anything you wanted, what would you do?

If you want to join, but don't meet requirements please PM me. I have done private versions of this swap, and am happy to do that. It's a lot of fun (at least to me!).

If you have any questions, something is not clear, please send me a PM! I don't read comments as often, but do check my messages at least once a day.

Thank you to @AmericanHeriess and @draco for allowing me to build on their ideas to create this swap. :)
