I'm in too! The website for INCOWRIMO 2015 was quite brilliant - I'm checking it often but it's not updated. So, PM me for an address and we'll get writing on our own.  Happy penning! M.

I'm now guessing that since it still hasn't been updated, it probably won't be...  :unsure:

I committed to participate in InCoWriMo. My first letter was a thank you note.

February 4 is National Letter Carriers Day. I'll write that thank you on the third and leave the letter at the mailbox for my letter carriers. Still lucky to have individual boxes at the houses in my neighborhood.

I was gonna try INCOWRIMO this time, but have been doing LetterMo (Month of Letters) for the past 3 years and decided one challenge for the month was enough. OTOH, if you'd like to write me a letter/postcard/whatever I will happily write you back. It may only be a postcard but I will answer. PM me for my address. Happy writing!

LetterMo's website is up and running

But, all you need are addresses and the will to write.

If anyone would like to receive a letter from me (most likely a short note or postcard rather than a lengthy piece of correspondence) please PM me your address! My second half of February is looking empty.

I'm going to write short notes for a few places I've visited in the past few years. That is one way to have a receiver for your letter a day. I wrote a thank you to the person at Project FeederWatch who identified a hawk from photos I sent.

If someone impacted your life, even years ago, a letter would be a welcome surprise.

I've been writing this month but since it's my first year, I'm not quite sure what I should be writing about. What do you guys write about? (Especially to strangers)

If anybody is looking for a home for a February letter or post card, you can send it to me. I'll pamper it and tie a ribbon around it. My address is on my blog, so I guess there's no reason not to post it here.

If anyone else needs to fill a few days, some folks in the UK are making a film about getting the wrong post and are seeking letters to use as props:

I second this idea - I always champion the cause of telling people how they have positively impacted your life.  We don't DO this enough (we are much better at telling people what they have done to screw up our lives, actually).
