Hi There Inksters!
Today’s PEN ME invites you to write FAN MAIL.
Well, not that kind of fan… Fan Mail is what you write when you want someone to know that you really appreciate what they do.
This person could either have done something for you — like when your parents make you lunch every day. Or it could be something the person does that you just really admire and appreciate. For instance, when the United States won their first game in the last World Cup, 7 year old Lucas wrote a fan letter to the team, letting them know how much he loved watching them play. He even shared a move he saw a player make that he tried to learn! I’ve written letters to writers whose books I really enjoyed.
So write a Fan Letter today. You only need a few short sentences to let someone know you appreciate what they do — for you or someone else.
A fun twist: Write a Fan Letter to a favorite character!
You might get a letter back from the person you write. You may not. But that’s okay. The point of a Fan Letter is just to let someone know you like what they do. Have fun!
