Hello! I decided to participate in InCoWriMo (International Correspondance Writing Month) again this year, then promptly forgot about it until a week in. I’ve been playing catch-up ever since, so after seeing Boho Berry’s lovely AND free tracker I was inspired to copy it into my own journal. 😉
I also really liked Megan’s tracker over at Page Flutter because it included her recipient’s addresses. So I turned my tracker into a two-page spread because I always run out of room writing addresses down!
Have a nice day! 🙂
February is InCoWriMo, the International Correspondence Writing Month. To participate, all you have to do is write a letter everyday this month. Some of you may find this an easy task, but others may be thinking, “who on earth am I going to write all those letters to?” That was definitely my first reaction! However, I soon realized it wouldn’t be as hard as it seems when I considered all the options.
Here are some ideas on who to write to, and keep in mind they don’t all have to be long letters. A thing as simple as a small note or postcard counts!
- The most obvious people to write to are the pen pals you already have!
- Your friends and family. Even if you see them often I’m sure they’d be delighted to get a letter from you!
- Participating in this challenge is also a great opportunity to expand your number of pen pals. If you need help figuring out where to find pen pals, check out this post.
- Use Postcrossing to send postcards to people all over the world.
- Send a Pocket Letter. It can be a one time exchange or you may find a long term pocket letter pal!
- More Love Letters connects you to people who need some love.
- Find a facebook group like Sunshine Snail Mail that sends mail to children with terminal illnesses, or send cards here to children who are in the hospital.
- Write to a soldier through Operation Gratitude.
I hope you’ll join me in InCoWriMo 2016! I’ll be posting a daily letter on my instagram if you want to follow along.
