A swap to ease us into February (Letter Writing Month)!
I'm also hosting an international version in the International Fun Mail group.

In the comments below, list at least 5 themes/topics/questions you'd like your partner to write about. If you don't list any, your partner can write whatever they feel like.

Write one letter to your partner from a theme they pick. The amount of text should be about one side of a sheet of Letter paper (8.5" x 11"), approximately a few paragraphs.

The twist? Don't use letter paper, memo sheets, aerogrammes, or notecards to write it. Make sure your letter is readable. No tiny text or writing on a background with not enough contrast.

Some ideas for what to use instead:

  • calendar pages
  • photos
  • paper bills/receipts
  • flyers/ads
  • postcards
  • planner pages
  • book pages
  • fabric

Feel free to get creative with what you write on or if you'd like to decorate your letter!

Include one flat surprise for your partner. The surprise isn't profile-based, but avoid their dislikes.

I'll check for slow raters, late senders, non-raters, double profilers, etc. before assigning partners.

Bread, your favorite time of day, textures you especially like, a sound that annoys you above all others, something in nature you find scary

Favorite pet, alive or passed; if you're a reader talk about one of your favorite books; how successful were you at last year's resolutions; a country you wish you could visit and why; as a child what did you want to do when you grew up? How does that compare with what you are actually doing; think of some one you really admire. Are you jealous or envious of that person? It's there a difference?

Write about yourself and your family.

Do you have any goals for this year?

I am open to you writing whatever your heart wishes, but if you need some ideas…

Your favorite book.

Your favorite place you’ve visited.

What melts your heart?

A secret.

A regret.
