This is my first host, so please let me know if you have any suggestions! Starting off simple...

For this swap, you will write a letter to a future version of yourself. What do you want a future you to remember? A specific memory? Something you were supposed to do? You can treat this letter as a time capsule. Use it as a reminder. Tell yourself where you expect to be in 10 years. Be funny. Be serious. Be prophetic.

Most of all, be creative. Handwrite the equivalent of one sheet of A4. You will write a total of two letters (one for each partner). You can decorate the letter or the envie however you like.

OPTIONAL: Include a picture of yourself, or a clipping from your newspaper, or something else with the date on it (movie ticket stub, receipt, etc.). Make it fun! What would you want to see in 1 year? 5 years? 10 years?

Newbies are welcome (because I still consider myself one) with filled out profiles. No unexplained 1's or 3's in the past 3 months. I will offer to angel in this swap after you rate a 1.

Can this be a fictitious letter?

As far as I'm concerned, certainly! I'm also toying with the idea of doing a fictitious letter series too, so keep an eye out.

Fictitious letter.... that is such a good idea :D I hope my profile is ok for the swap - I'm a newbie :S

Thank Wand, I will be looking for the fictitious letter series. This is such a great idea, I am going to be writing a whole series between my two fave elves. Another side story to my Ecthelionverse.
