Friday Fun

Look what I found in a box of junk my mom dropped off at Thanksgiving. It's a response to a fan letter I wrote to Ann M. Martin, author of The Babysitter's Club books. The letter's date is 1992.

Sure, it's just a form letter, but isn't it kind of cool that authors write back? Nowadays things are so easier--you can just post on an author's blog or follow them on twitter. But back then, a letter was so meaningful!

Hopefully, I can bust through the remaining word count I need to finish NaNoWriMo. Even if I don't, I have a great start on a new story. Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. Wow, awesome that your mom kept that! Totally cool. I hope get fan-mail someday :)

  2. That's awesome! I get so thrilled whenever an author interacts with me on Twitter. I love the idea of these letters!

  3. Whoa, I was just Googling Ann M. Martin the other day. BSC and SVH ruled my childhood!

  4. That letter is fantastic. I think I would have shown it to everyone in school and then put it in prime position on my mother's fridge :P
