|Dear F. Stick.,
I thought it would be fun to write you a letter, because writing letters is fun. I find the best part of writing a letter is that you have all the time you want to construct your thoughts. As a result, there is no excuse for sounding (or I guess writing) dumb. For example, I just looked up the word clerihew in a dictionary. If somebody asked me, “Please use the word clerihew in a sentence.” I would say, “You want me to use the word clerihew in a sentence?” They would reply, “Yes.” To which I would say, “I just did.”
See how smart I am sounding already (I just used the word clerihew)? I hope my spelling and grammar is okay. I don’t worry about punctuation because I.ve! n,ev-er re?ally ;under:stood i#t. I should work on it, because I write letters all the time. This letter is different, because I am actually going to send it. Normally I write a letter and then I don’t send it. I’ve gotten pretty good at it. In fact I’m so adept at the whole process, sometimes I skip the writing part and just jump ahead to the not sending it part. That actually saves a lot of time, and I think it makes me more prolific.
The trouble is, I have to be careful not to be too prolific. Otherwise I’ll worry about burning out. If I were to burn out now it would be shame, I feel I could still write thousands, maybe hundreds of letters and not send them. I could probably actually send about six real letters as well. That would be quite an achievement.
