I am going to start, and partake in this challenge that I hope takes off. I wanted to start it on the old forum, but never really had the courage.
If you are a writer, you know that fanmails can turn a bad day into a good one. But there’s differences in ‘quality’ fan mail as well. I am challenging readers and myself to write fanmails that go above and beyond. They don’t necessarily have to be 100 words, but think of that as a goal. Send them a fanmail, and let them know at the end (or the name of the fanmail) that you partook in this challenge.
I guess I can make rewards, like a gif spam :3
But this is also a way to find great stories, and share them. So after you send your fanmail, post on here maybe a much more casual version of what you wrote. hopefully they will see it
I need to stop being a hypocrit, and I am going to try to do one every three days or so. As much as I’d like to do one for everystory, it’s easier to write one for a story that stands out to you.
I suggest you write about how you connect to the characters, a favorite scene, things you are looking forward to, and perhaps their inspiration. I would avoid suggestions & dislikes.
