As the writers return to work - pound those keyboards proud and true my friends - I offer one last post.
For SEVENTY FOUR days I offered one advertiser after another for you to send letters of consumer concern to each night.
For SEVENTY FOUR DAYS we wrote lettter, after letter... after LETTER!
So many of you stepped up, helped out and worked so very hard helping to make our voice or support heard.
I'm touched and awed by what we did together.
While we'll never know what impact it really had we can all take comfort and pride in knowing - a valuable lesson I taught my lovely children through this project - we did our very best for the right reasons.
You guys are my heroes and I want to personally THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
My affection -- seriously I will never forget you guys and what we did together -- and gratitude aside I wanted to let you know I have decided to send that one last letter of thanks to each company myself.
You guys have worked so hard so long... I'll wrap it all up myself
While I was never in this for anything but helping out in any way that I could I have been convinced by pals who know me *very well* that this is a very unique opportunity for me to make an appeal to folks I love and admire.
I've been collecting writers' autographs for just over 10 years.
YES! I said writers', always the writers, not actors! :o)
I've filled several boxes full of them down through the years and count them as some of my most treasured possessions.
While I can go on sending letters, something I surely will keep doing, to a lot of wonderful writers bit by bit I've decided to take this opportunity to make a mass appeal.
If you are a writer or know a writer I'd be thrilled to add another autograph to my precious collection through your generosity.
Any show, movie, anything at all because my love of writing and the talented writers who bring it to us knows no limitations.
While most of my collection at the moment is made up of scripts I'm equally giddy with a autographed single page or even a piece of signed logo letterhead.
Because I never want anyone to question my motives, be concerned I want them for any other purpose, I always suggest putting my name right across the front - I have a lot of scripts with a great big PAMALA across the front - to insure its for me and me alone.
I'm putting my mailing address (I'm way to mundane and everyday to bother with stalking so I have no fear there) under the cut.( Collapse )
If you are a writer.
If you know a writer you'd like to pass this on to...
Please know I'd be thrilled beyond words and oh so grateful to recieve a kind and thoughtful autograph to add my collection.
Thanks for everything
And for the first time in a very long time...
I won't see you again here tomorrow night.
