Re: How much time do you spend writing to your penpals, and how often do they write?
i usually get a letter or two a week from R. that depends on the speed (or lack thereof) of the polunsky mailroom. sometimes they take forever, and other times they act like they're on meth. we've got 4 or 5 letters in circulation right now, so that helps matters.
the time i spend on replying depends on what day i get the letter. if i get it during the week, i'll reply the same night. if i get it on a friday, i'll take the whole weekend to respond (which results in some pretty epic letters). typically i'll take an hour or so during the week to reply, depending on how much i've got to say.
