In a recent post by the always thoughtful Cristian Mihai , he shared a treasure trove of a website: Letters of Note – a blog-based archive of fascinating correspondence. Here are a few of my favorite letters of note from the site:
- You’ve Got to Sell Your Heart – F. Scott Fitzgerald gives brutally honest feedback to an aspiring writer
- Damn You all To Hell – Tom Hanks replies to staff at the Nerdist who ask him to appear on podcast.
- Live Like a Mighty River – Father advises son on coping with life.
- People Simply Empty Out – Writer looks back on his escape from the 9 to 5.
- To My Former Master – A former slave replies to his former master’s request for him to return to the plantation.
I hope you find as much inspiration in these letters as I have.
