Pen Pals Anyone?
« on: November 06, 2015, 01:06:44 PM »
I'm hoping to get some practice in and this seems like a great way to do that. It'd be fun to converse with others around the world through snail mail, my favorite mode of communication. It somehow seems so much more personal and special.

Anyways, does anyone want to start writing some letters? We could write anything at random or discuss topics, send quotes or poems. Whatever works really!  :)

I think I've sent messages to everyone to let you know what's going on but I want to post here quickly. I have some personal/family stuff going on at the moment so while I have a couple letters written already they will not be getting sent out until Monday. Another week or so after that and I will get the rest of the letters written.

I am so sorry that I'm not getting these pen pal letters out in a timely fashion. I'm so excited to send them and get letters back and I hope you are too!

Hello all,
I am suuuuuuper excited!!!!
I received my first pen pal from Bianca today. It is gorgeous and elegant and i am going to cherish this, as well as all of the others, for ever. I feel like a kid again and looking forward to more with everyone. Now is my turn to go and stress about my inadequate skills replying back. Thank you again Bianca, this is so special to me.

Alright, I've clearly bitten off more than I can chew in a timely manner BUT two of six letters have been mailed. Another two letters are written and drying. The other two letters will be written today or in the next couple of days.

Please excuse the messiness should you get a letter without gridlines used. I tried writing without them one two letters. Everything was a little off. For the other four letters I am drawing gridlines on to make sure they don't look so umm...horrendous.

Thank you all for your patience. I'm excited to finally have the time to write and get these all sent out.

It is so much fun! I'll send you my address if you'd like to write to me. I will have plenty of time to write back in a couple weeks because I have about three weeks off work!

Oh, oh, OH! I would like a pen pal!

I'm new and not very good but would love the practice and the lovely mailbox surprises!

Is anyone interested in corresponding with a rookie?
