I love the idea of collaborative journal swaps, but I can't afford the postage. So instead of everyone putting their work into a single bound book, we will be be journalling on individual sheets of paper that can be hole punched and put into a binder by the recipient. I'm hoping to host this swap monthly if there's enough interest.
Each swap will have a different theme. Swap #4's theme is to write about at least 2 television shows you LOVE, more details will be found at the bottom of this description.
The minimum you are required to send is a single sheet of 8.5x11 paper with your journal entry that meets the swap's theme requirements (some swaps will only need one side filled, others may require both sides). Anything more you want to add is entirely up to you (additional pages, extra decorations, etc).
There is no rule about what kind of paper you can and cannot use, just that it must be 8.5x11 AND the ink(s) you are using should not bleed through the paper. No pencil is allowed for the main part of the swap's themed requirements, but you can use pencil for any additional decoration if that's your medium.
Journal entries can be handwritten or typed or any combination there of. You may fold the sheet neatly for mailing.
Do not forget to include your Swap-Bot username on your entry. Your real name and address is optional on the journal entry itself.
Swappers will be banned if they have any 1s to active members, an excessive number of 3s, any 3s that are less than 3 months old or any 1s or 3s that aren't explained. I will angel if you make the appropriate contact with your partner and me and once you have rated your partner accordingly. Newbies are allowed so long as they've logged in at least 3 days before partners are assigned.
Okay! So the theme for swap #4 is to write about 2 television shows you LOVE. You are required to write at least 2 full pages (8.5x 11) total (in this case, you will fill a page for each show). One on the front and one on the back of the sheet is fine so long as it doesn't bleed through!
Details that must be included are: synopsis of the show (no major spoilers please), favorite character(s) and why (be specific), and at least one thing that you want to happen next "season" based on where YOU are in watching; so, for example, if you just finished season 3 of Supernatural and you don't know what happens in the 4th season, feel free to make predictions that may or may not be accurate. If you've watched all of a now-cancelled show, talk about what the next season would show if it were made. Make sure you are clear with your partner about what "season" you are writing about. If you have to use any major spoilers that are obviously spoilers to make your prediction make sense (e.g. main character dies) cover this section with a post-it note or other creative "flap" marked spoilers. Assume that your partner has never heard of this show and you want them to watch it.
And remember, you can type or handwrite this. Decoration is 100% optional, but appreciated.
