DAY 299: Writing to a stranger in a magazine

27 Jun

I’VE written to magazines (Boars and Whores), I’ve written thank you notes, but I’ve yet to write to a thank you note to someone in a magazine.

This woman wrote a brilliant, risk-taking personal article in what’s usually the sort of magazine that’s copped one too many knocks to the head with the hair straighteners. It’s also a subject close to my heart.

Unlike my letter to Adam Ant for Women of Letters, I’m not trying to save her, and unlike my letters to Cher and Lydia Lunch in my preteens and teens, I’m not asking for help. Sometimes a simple note of appreciation will suffice.

Keeper? Yes.
