Round 2 complete


All done! There were 60 writers wanting partners and I did the best I could. Large range of ages, and interests. Some will be thrilled and others bemused maybe and others baffled, but I tried to find some nugget of commonality. Have fun. Write and enjoy the process. The obligation is one letter and the rest is whatever you wish:) Thanks for participating!

  1. Thank you for doing this, Shelagh. I know it's a lot of work for you to do the matching, but it's going to be so fun for all 60 of us! I can't wait!

  6. Should we all have gotten letters by now? I'm afraid mine was sent out a day or two after the deadline...

  7. I would hope that you might have a letter now. Some people have the best intentions but life gets in the way:( I have sent the contact info to everybody. Some people might be waiting to receive a letter first. I am hopeful that you will all receive letters but there might be a case where that will not happen:( Thanks for sending out yours, perhaps if you have not received one you could send a postcard with a gentle reminder?

  9. Hello from Iowa! Oh darn, I just found your lovely blog, and I'm too late for the pen pal fun! Is this something you might do just one more time? I will stay tuned! Thanks!

  11. Xeyli just pointed out that I was supposed to write by June 28. Since I didn't get a letter, I know I'm not the only buttlagger (and maybe I should stop entering these things cause I appear to have bad juju).
