Writer’s Fan Letter Unanswered. Writers, Do You Know Why?
In my Hooking Readers workshops I always pass along what was passed along to me by my mentors, most all coming from my longtime affiliation with the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. It was there I learned from literary legends like Ray Bradbury that when you love a writer’s works, you should send them ‘love letters’ Mr Bradbury’s term of endearment for those letters of appreciation writers send to their writer mentors. I always have and before the internet and websites made this easy, it was a labor of love. Armistead Maupin’s Tale of the City series remain among my favorite. I read all as soon as each was published.
I came across this letter, a copy from my files, and knew instantly what I did wrong. Actually, a few things.
Do you?
Please feel free to leave a comment. What’s wrong with this love letter the author did not pick up back when she wrote it?
