Want a letter, or feel like exercising your pens?  Then here's a quick fix - get a letter right away and send a letter to the next person that posts after you. That's it, no long term commitment, just a letter for fun.

  1. The next person to post (international included) gets a letter from the person in the post before their own, but you must then send a letter to the next person to post after you, who then must send a letter to the next after them, and so on.
  2. Private Messager your mailing address to the person who posted before you, once you see that your post is actually next.

Participate more than once if you like, but let's agree to send the previous letter before posting again.

Ok, sounds like fun, and I think I understand how it works - I PM my address to the poster just previous to my post - who will send me a letter. Then I will send a letter to whoever posts after me.

I received a very interesting letter from the FPNer who posted before me. I'm ready to get a letter off to whoever posts after me.
