I love the idea of collaborative journal swaps, but I can't afford the postage. So instead of everyone putting their work into a single bound book, we will be be journalling on individual sheets of paper that can be hole punched and put into a binder by the recipient. I'm hoping to host this swap monthly if there's enough interest.
Each swap will have a different theme. Swap #3's theme is to write about 3 childhood memories, more details will be found at the bottom of this description.
The minimum you are required to send is a single sheet of 8.5x11 paper with your journal entry that meets the swap's theme requirements (some swaps will only need one side filled, others may require both sides). Anything more you want to add is entirely up to you (additional pages, extra decorations, etc).
There is no rule about what kind of paper you can and cannot use, just that it must be 8.5x11 AND the ink(s) you are using should not bleed through the paper. No pencil is allowed for the main part of the swap's themed requirements, but you can use pencil for any additional decoration if that's your medium.
Journal entries can be handwritten or typed or any combination there of. You may fold the sheet neatly for mailing.
Do not forget to include your Swap-Bot username on your entry. Your real name and address is optional on the journal entry itself.
Swappers will be banned if they have any 1s to active members, an excessive number of 3s, any 3s that are less than 3 months old or any 1s or 3s that aren't explained. I will angel if you make the appropriate contact with your partner and me and once you have rated your partner accordingly. Newbies are allowed.
Okay! So the theme for swap #3 is to write about 3 childhood memories. You are required to write at least 2 full pages (8.5x 11) total (so about 2/3rds page for each memory, but this isn't set in stone). This can be front and back or 2 sheets of paper; it's your choice. Feel free to write more if you want. The memories can be good, bad, or ugly; whateveryou feel comfortable with.
Please also include at least one photograph of you as a kid (any age and it doesn't have to relate to the memories you wrote about). The photo doesn't have to be great quality so long as it's relatively clear (you can print it on your home printer; black and white is fine).
And remember, you can type or handwrite this. Decoration is 100% optional, but appreciated.
