I saw this on another forum and it seemed like a fun idea.  It's a bit of a game.  The next person who posts on this thread will get a letter from me.  The second person who posts will get a letter from the previous poster, then send a letter to the next person who posts.  The chain will continue as long as the people continue to post to the thread.  Does that make sense?  Each person gets one letter from the person immediately before them and writes one letter to the person immediately after them.

Rules:

1.  If you wish to receive a letter, post a reply to this thread.
2.  After posting, send a PM with your address to the person who posted just prior to you on the thread.
3.  Your letter may be as long or as short as you like (but please write at least a couple paragraphs).
4.  Calligraphy is optional.
5.  You are under no obligation to write back to the person who sends you a letter.
6.  You are obligated to send a letter to the next person in the thread.
7.  Once you have sent a letter to the next person who posts in the thread, you are welcome to post to the thread again.

Please do not reply to this thread if you are not willing and able to send a letter to the next person who posts in the thread.

Let the fun begin!   ;D

Is it cheating that I already owe Star a letter? Ha! ;)

[Edit: Clearly, I didn't have enough coffee today and got confused! Reading it now, Star, you'll owe me a letter, even though I owe you, but I'd be delighted to receive one of your calliflowers. Please make it the scariest possible. And in return, I will do a super sized letter to you. <3]

Elisabeth, you are a letter exchange genius! This is such a creative idea. Thanks for this. :)

I'm willing, but pity the poor person who ends up with my paltry penning.

Just to make sure we're clear, the most recent person to write a post sends their address to the person who posted before them.  So, Saron should PM Marjorie M. with an address who will write Saron a letter, and hanmadeph will PM an address to Saron who will write hanmadeph.

I wish I could claim credit for this idea, but I saw it on Fountain Pen Network and thought people here would have fun with it.  :)

(**Discount this post in the letter chain--the next person to post should send their address to hanmadeph**)

Thanks for clearing that up Elizabeth.
