This is a fun letter swap! You will have 2 partners, and send them each a letter with a list of 20 facts about yourself. These facts can be anything--things you've done, things you love, things you want to do. Be creative! I'm hoping this will lead to some real letters & long-term penpal friendships, but after the first 20-fact letter, it's up to you :) Letters must be handwritten (unless you have a medical reason to type, in which case I'm sure your partners will understand! but do handwrite if you're able.), and try to check out your partner's profile & write things that might interest them/things you have in common. And where possible, elaborate on your facts! For example, instead of writing, "I love to read," say something about the kinds of books you like. Say something that can start a conversation, and have fun!

I would love to join this swap, but due to the pain in my hands, I am not able to handwrite.

I should edit it--should be handwritten unless you have a medical reason to type. Sorry, Margothecat, do feel free to go ahead and join! I'll edit it now.

pop them in the post box now they won't be on their way until tomorrow so I will be taking them along to the post office tomorrow! Don't want to message the receivers before they get their letter as half the fun is the waiting unknowingly lol

I did the same as Nancy--I popped them in the mail on the way to work this morning at about 5:45 since there was no mail service yesterday. So they're on their way today! :)
