I'm catching up with my delinquent letters right now, so I can start February with a clean slate. I tend to get my postings out in groups instead of one a day, but I have gotten them all out each for eh past three years. I plan to try again this year.

I will be participating - my third year!

 

My little wish for this year is to see more local people join in InCoWriMo!

 

Keep writing and enjoy.

I think I will be giving Incowrimo a go this year.  It will be my first attempt: slightly apprehensive, but I think that it will be good fun!

This sounds like fun. I have participated in Nanowrimo many times, but this is the first time I have heard of Incowrimo.

I'll join in this year also. This will be my first time and, to be honest, I'm a bit aprehensive about it since I'm not a wordy person. Writing letters comes pretty hard to me.

The similar project, LetterMo has been updated with a forum for 2016. The project has been running for a year longer than InCoWriMo. 


I blog at http://correspondenc...blogspot.co.uk/ on correspondence and stamps and such. I also have a snailmail forum

Participating in InCoWriMo-2019.

Best wishes

I'll be participating. I have a stack of letters and Christmas cards I need to respond to. I think I'll get my list together now with names and addresses so I'll be ready. I'm printing out more of my stationery right now. I am only printing 60 pages. I may need some more paper, and envelopes. 

 

I'm looking forward to it! It's my first year.

Postcards count, you know. Not all mail has to be wordy!

Well, i just broke down and signed up for LetterMo. It's not like I have do double the writing, see?

 

I was commenting to my husband last night about how long it takes me to write a letter, especially if I am watching TV at the same time. He responded that I write really long letters, and if I wrote shorter ones I could get twice as many done. He is correct, of course; most of my letters are two pages long, front and back, regardless of whether I am using standard stationery or 8.5 x 11 inch paper. DUH on me! [I should note that I was surprised that he had even noticed how long my letters are - I have never said a word to him about it, and didn't know he was watching.]
