I stayed up far later than I should have last night. I do odd things when it’s past my bedtime. Like going on Twitter “follow” sprees that baffle me the next morning,
stalking former High School adversaries on FaceBook, writing fan letters to Richard Armitage…
well, technically just one letter, but still.
I have nothing against fan letters, I’ve just never written one before. How could I possibly condense all of the things I want to tell Richard into just a few pages? Where would I even begin? I wouldn’t want to gush about him to him, that would be weird. and I wouldn’t want it to turn into the Kelly show either, that could get even weirder.
In my first draft I chose to write about you instead: how this blog and this fandom have shaped me in positive ways over the past year. It got a bit flowery at times, and a good bit of dorky and awkward sneaked in as well. One part consisted of the phrase:
a Long Time Ago (a little over a year)
In a Galaxy Far Far Away (the Internet)…I started a blog.
I seem to recall another part where I dramatically exclaimed:
Fandom will find you!
and then I told him it was safe to come out from under the covers now,
because the scary part was over.
Yeah, I think I should probably go back to the drawing board 🙄
Have any of you written a fan letter before? (please put me out of my misery and say Yes) ‘fess up and tell me, so I don’t feel so alone! and then maybe I’ll be brave enough to actually finish mine and send it…
