10 Tips for Writing a Great Letter:

1. Write a letter on paper (rather than email)
2. Make sure you spell their name right
3. Long is good, but quality is better
4. Send it! (don't just let is sit on your desk!)
5. Proofread! (and now I need to look over this post again!)
6. Double check the address
7. Make sure your tone is appropriate for your relationship with the recipient
8. Know why you are writing before you start and make sure you achieved your goal at the end
9. Reread the letter looking for any wording that could be misinterpreted
10. Date the letter - the future thanks you!
