InCoWriMo

My last post

I’m sorry it has come to this, but I no longer have time to penal. I have enjoyed every moment of it and I hope I brought some joy or interest in your life. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for being a great friend when I needed it.

Love to all and happy writing,

Skiye

3 Outgoings on this rainy day!

I have 3 outgoings today. One to Genevieve in MA (a continued InCoWriMo reply), one to Victoria in MA (another continued InCoWriMo reply), and one to Chelsea in OR (my great pen friend from sendsomething.net). I’m finally getting caught up on my mail. I only have 2 people to reply to currently. However, I still have all my long introductory letters to write to my assigned pen friends from International Pen Friends. Hoping to get to that this weekend. I apologize that I still have not uploaded my previous incoming mail video. I hope to get that up soon. It’s pretty long! Hope everyone is having a lovely day!

Outgoing: InCoWriMo Reply

So I received more InCoWriMo letters and postcards yesterday. I believe I’m now up to 13 now that I’ve received. Today is a reply out to Genevieve in MA for InCoWriMo. I even took a nifty picture as I was pulling up to the drive-thru blue drop box. 🙂 I have so much mail to catch up on. I’m hoping to get some replies written tonight, tomorrow, and this weekend. I’ve been getting close to 3 letters per day already this week. There really are InCoWriMo Angels out there making sure I get my fair share! 😀

Outgoing: S2 Reply & InCoWriMo Reply

A reply to my dear pen friend from S2 and from InCoWriMo, Patricia in FL; and a reply to my new found pen friend Kathie in RI from InCoWriMo. Just because it’s over doesn’t mean you have to quit writing! 😀 I also sent out 2 postcards for postcrossing.com today. I can’t post them because it’s supposed to be a surprise!

InCoWriMo 2015 Conclusion

As InCoWriMo is now at a close, I’d like to talk about my experience.

I pre-wrote, pre-stamped, and pre-sorted all my postcards to 36 people. I believe it was the best way to do it as there were days where I didn’t FEEL like writing or didn’t have time to. However, I did write almost everyday in the month of February, whether it was to someone on sendsomething.net, The Postal Society, or postcrossing.com, so I didn’t TOTALLY cheat. 🙂 I did enjoy every day that I wrote. I didn’t feel like I was doing it because I had to, I was doing it because it was fun!

To date, I have only received 8 incoming letters from InCoWriMo. I’m going to keep waiting in the month of March as there may have been people who sent Internationally that I haven’t received yet, or others who just sent at the end of the month of February. So, I can’t say I’m disappointed on the incoming yet. The ones I did receive were all very unique in their own special way. Never underestimate people’s creativity in effort to stand out from the rest!

Overall, thus far, I’m pleased with my experience. I may really think about whether or not I want to participate next year. I’ve written so many fun folks this year, it’s almost ridiculous to think about NOT participating next year. I do however, want to participate in LetterMo next year, whether I participate in InCoWriMo again or not. It has taught me there are so many different types of people in the world from all walks of life and it is fun to read what others have to write about. One special person has given me some pointers to improve my letter-writing skills and made me really think about how to stand out from the crowd on your own style of mail. It has also taught me a little lesson in patience in waiting for the mail to come, instead of the instant gratification you get from e-mail or texting or a phone call.

Though InCoWriMo is over, my pen-pal, letter writing, journey is just unfolding. I vow to continue searching for new pen pals (on different websites, through the mail, etc.) and writing more letters and consistently striving to improve my skills in letter writing.

Thank you so much to all who have encouraged me this month, to all those who participated, and especially to all those who took their own time out of their busy or non-busy life to write me a letter. *hugs* to all!

InCoWriMo Day 28 (LAST DAY!)

Today’s the last day. I hope everyone got all their mail out. This is my last postcard going out to AnnMarie who doesn’t live too far from me in Urbana, IL. I received one letter yesterday. Hopefully I will get the rest of my InCoWriMo letters in March since I’ve only received 6 this month.
