We believe that keeping in touch is kind of important. And that’s why we’re moving our comments section here to it’s very own page.

Years past have proved that a good comment section provides timely general information in addition to letting other people know you’re here. Believe it or not for more than a year, incowrimo pretty much functioned from a comment section alone.

Keep in mind it’s our firm belief that if you have something to say to someone    ..send them a letter.

Few things in life are as satisfying as opening your post box to find someone has sent you a letter sharing their ideas and thoughts. And just as nice is the opportunity to write them back.

  2. Hi, my name is Sandra and I am participating for the first time this year. I love writing and doing paper crafts. I am a card maker and will be sending some of my cards to the names I pick from the list. I am hoping to complete the whole month of February and will have a big smile if I am able to complete this. Yay, I am in San Antonio, TX and am a stay at home mom who homeschools two boys.

    Hi Y’all! I’m Miranda from Arkansas. I am a 37 year old stay at home mom to a 14 year old boy and a 10 year old girl. I love reading, fountain pens and inks, my two dogs, and my family. This is my 5th year participating, I think. Looking forward to getting to know some new folks. Hope everyone has fun! Happy writing.

    Hello! This is my first year participating, and I’m so excited to be involved in something like this.
    I’m a 23 year old pastry cook and musician in Colorado, originally from New England. I speak conversational Spanish and am hoping to travel quite a lot this year. I also live a low waste lifestyle and try to push myself to live even more sustainably.
    I enjoy drawing, bookbinding, knitting, bullet journaling (though I’m new to it), dance, gardening, listening to books, cooking, visiting new places, and generally trying to learn and do as many new things as I can.
    I hope to hear from you!

    How was everyone’s first day of InCoWriMo? I am so grateful to be here to connect, and to keep letter-writing alive and well!

    InCoWriMo needs to last all year because February just doesn’t have enough days. So many interesting autobiographies and addresses that I’ve already got more than 28 and the first two have been sent on their way! (If the month is passing by and you haven’t received a letter, drop one in the mail to me and I promise you’ll get one back; my personal challenge is to respond to every one I receive.) Happy writing! Rebecca Carrillo IG: @smidgens.and.bits

    Hi everyone! It’s my first time joining. It was even at last moment and wasn’t sure if I made the cut. But looks like I did! I have been writing letters for over 23 years already and I love it very much. I am a creative soul and looking for same kindred spirits :) I love planning/journalling, galaxy, vintage, steampunk, gaming (WoW, Guild Wars 2, Maple Story 2 etc.), cute things… I am very curious of how this all goes and I hope to be able to send out 1 letter a day (I think I have just to pick out addresses that speaks to me)! Good luck everyone, lets fill each other mailboxes this month!

    Back for a second year – so grateful for the letter-writers who have stuck with me throughout 2018. Question: What is InCoWriMo’s back-story? Who came up with this idea, and how did it all come to be? (OR … did I somehow miss this information posted or reported somewhere?) Thanks!

    Received my first ever incowrimo mail today! I can’t tell you how happy and blessed I feel right now! Thank you so much Patricia Landon (if you’re reading this). I hope the joy I feel in getting a letter is similar to the joy someone else has from receiving one off me. Now I’m off to write more letters and see if there are anymore strangers just waiting to be friends.

    Thanks so much for linking me to your backstory page, Incowrimo-2019! Out of unweldiness,confusion, and the commitment to Create and Commit to Something Really Good came … the site we now hold in our inky hands. But of course now I’m even *more* curious about how you guys got started in 2015! (The *back*-back story …) So grateful for all of you who made this happen.

    Hello fellow mail lovers – I´m back for my 2nd year and I´m looking forward to connect with you through mail this month and find some long lasting pen-pals as well. I´m a midwife and right now also about to have another little one added to our family. Due any day—- still waiting!
    I´m interested in films, travelling, creativity in any form, music, dancing, cooking and eating out and exploring the city and nature with my camera. And yes, reading and of course corresponding since I was 11 years old. There´s so much to share and write about. Can´t wait to hear from you!

  15. As the first week comes to a close, I have enjoyed this week more than in previous years! I have no idea why. Perhaps because there are more people this year, maybe they are new to this and perhaps I’ve already sent them a letter. I will write replies over the next few days before looking again to surprise someone, or maybe I’ll surprise tomorrow as well as write replies.

    I am writing so many cards and letters. I love using up some of my stationery stash (including my hand made cards) because it gives me the perfect excuse…I mean reason…to either buy or make more! I’ve also received three cards/letters from people I hadn’t sent to so yeah…and thank you (I will be sending something back)! Rebecca Carrillo :)

    So far no letters for me to read yet but hopefully as replies come back I will have some, can’t wait to check the mailbox in the morning :) Last year I seemed to get letters just randomly which was really neat. I haven’t been as diligent this year on sending out my own random letters though as i’m a few days behind already but will catch up. Busy time working and looking for a new place to work but I love incowrimo too much to not partake in it. Really glad incorwimo exists, not sure why exactly I like it so much but this is my 2nd year and I’m glad I can participate.

    Last year i was in for the address book, but this year I can’t find my own name. ;( how do I add my name to the address book? I miss hearing from people.

    • Sadly alas but the sign up for this year is closed until mid December. But that’s no reason to dispair. We are absolutely certain that if you were to send out letters to people in this years address book, you are very likely to get some mail in return. Remember as well that there are plenty of participants who write throughout the entire year, not just February and many have asked to have their names posted until the end of November. This leaves plenty of opportunity to start of an interesting correspondence. :)

    Hello everyone,
    I just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying my first InCoWriMo! I’ve sent out letters as well as received some awesome letters. I will be responding very shortly to those. I love getting letters from people in my own state (CA) or as far away as the other side of the world. I hope that everyone is having a good time writing and receiving letters. I don’t want February to end :) Ginger

        I have written letters too, (I even left a way for them to contact me to tell them they received my letter, so far nothing either and they are in the same country as I am) and we are already half way… but so far nothing yet. So you are very lucky to receive some letters in the first week! :)

I’ve answered all of them (Jessica Gilbert, yours was the most recent to arrive and my letter to you will be in the mail tomorrow), so anyone who hasn’t yet received my response should have it soon! Thanks to all who have written me. :)

    This year I am sending a postcard randomly to someone from every country listed – 15 countries have been sent so far!

    So if you get a random postcard from New Zealand it could be from this day dreaming, book worm, tea sipper, mix taper, self carer, potty mouth, film buff, fan girl, odd ball who is open to any kind of postal adventures :)
