I love handwriting letters, lists, notes, anything. I even handwrite things before typing them out! If you're a handwriting person like I am, this swap is for you!

You will write a letter to your swap partner answering all the questions below. You can write on any sort of paper you'd like, just make sure your handwriting is legible! Write in cursive (script/joined-up) or print. You do NOT have to write the questions.

This swap is International and open to newbies. To any of the older ones, a 4.8 rating is necessary. I will angel if someone flakes after the two week period, but you must let me know!


  1. Write your swap-bot name in some writing that you thought was super cool when you were younger (e.g. bubble letters, digital clock letters, letters with lots of embellishments, or letters with smiley faces in them).

  2. Write a list of all the countries or states you’ve been to. Write a comment on each of them, if you'd like.

  3. List your top three celebrity current crushes, or crushes you had in the past.

  4. Draw a self-portrait. Don't worry if you can't draw!

  5. Name three things you like about yourself.

  6. Do you like the climate you live in? What do you like about it or what would you change?

  7. What is your current mood? Write and/or draw.

  8. Can you tie a bow-tie? A regular tie? If yes, how and when did you learn?

  9. Pick something from your immediate surroundings and tell the story behind the item.

  10. The last time you noticed you’d put a piece of clothing on incorrectly, i.e. backwards/inside out/etc?

  11. What is a typical breakfast for you?

  12. Describe your favourite hot beverage: coffee, tea or hot chocolate? Milk? Sugar?

  13. Describe your favorite food. Who makes it?

  14. List 5 movies that you love.

  15. What's an embarrassing memory that still makes you blush?

  16. What brought you to swap-bot?

  17. Do you have any current real-life crushes? If you're in a relationship, did you have a crush on that person?

  18. Do you prefer to text or call your friends?

  19. Write an autograph version of your name.

  20. Pick up the nearest printed material in your first language and copy out a random paragraph.

I even handwrite my stories out in my journals before typing them into my word processor. Of course, the novel was something else. Well, most of it is in my journals. Do I have to write about me? Can i write from the point of view of my character?

aprettyfailure 06/ 1/2013 #

If you decide to write about a character, please tell your partner that you are and why you've decided to write about a character. The point is to handwrite this letter! Happy swapping!

My partner has been partially suspended..... does that affect anything?

You should probably send her one; unfortunately I can't give you another partner.
