Hello there.

This is a biggie. 10 Page Letter. It can be typed or written 8.5 x 11 pages (smaller pages please write more to make it to the 8.5 x11 size or close).

This will be fun but a little time consuming :D

Can't wait to start this letter :D

Please have something in your Profile, swappers with blank profiles will not be allowed in this swap.

This is a reoccuring Swap. I will make a new swap for each month. Things got a little hectic on my end so I did skip April so things could settle down a little.

If you do not receive your swap in a timely manner after the mail date (remember international posting takes a little time), please message me, and I will be more than happy to angel :D In your message, please include your name, swap name, your partner, if you tried contacting them and how that turned out.

4.8 rating or above is required for this swap and a filled out profile.

Complete Flakers without communication will be banned from all future swaps that I host, until they are resolved. (I am sorry I have to put this message in here, but there has been concerns in my other swaps)

As hostess I reserve the right to ban participants. There will be NO un-needed stress or drama allowed in this swap. Swapbot is for happiness and fun. Please Please do not bring stress and drama to this swap. Thank you in advance for understanding.

single or double sided 8.5 x 11?

sammieianime 04/ 3/2015 #

Oh single lol or double side counts as two lol. Its funny writing a pen pal 10 pages is easy cause the words just flow lol. When its a requirement lol its a little tougher sometimes rotfl. Always fun :)

Could it be like a journal? A journal with different entries telling about the days? Or should it be more planned out in paragraphs with each paragraph being a topic? I do not write letters and I'm not very creative at things like that but I would like to try. I just do not want to get it wrong.

Also, please clarify (I am confused with your last reply, sorry)

  1. 10 sheets of paper: witten on both sides for 20 pages of writing

  2. 10 sheets of paper: written only one side for 10 pages of writing

  3. 5 sheets of paper: written on both sides for 10 pages of writing

I am going to watch for now, until I can clarify something. If we type, regular font (12/14) would it be only 5 pages? because 1 regular written page takes up about a half a page of typed pages.

If this can help anyone about sheet/page 1 sheet=2 pages, it's just like in a book, a journal or anything else. People tend to confuse Pages/sheets but it's so easy and logical.

About the journal question, I personnally think that everybody should be free to write the letter under the form they prefer because I know it's not easy for some people. I'm a long letter writer for years, it's a really easy thing for me but I wouldn't mind receiving a typical letter with paragraphs or a journal, or 1 sheet per topic or any other form.

But I let the coordinator deciding, it was just the opinion of a "possible partner" (I haven't joined yet...)

Let's see if I can help here :D

Typed pages, 5 pages on one side I think is good, because you can fit more writing on a typed page.

Handwritten 10 sheets of paper written on 1 side.

Handwritten on 5 sheets of paper (written on front and back 2 sides.

Journal entries are fine, just as long as it meets the writing requirements of 10 pages (front side) or 5 pages (front and back) or 5 pages typed (front side)

Man, this one could almost qualify as a Type 3 craft. It's package sized and will take a good deal of time and thought to complete. Simply because it is written art and not visual shouldn't exclude it... I wonder how others would think of that? Anyhow, count me in! This looks like it's going to be loads of fun!

We can put it to a 3 :)

I will admit. The last time i did a 10 page letter swap. I spent 3-4 movies of writing time lol. It took a couple of days. I used legal paper that had small lines lol. It seemed like it took forever but i sure had a lot of fun :) one of my favorite swaps :)
