Barbra Streisand's tweet. By Joelle Goldstein. Close Share options. Or even, occasionally, because I thought I already had. But what strikes me more than anything now is how deeply and valuably encouraging they all were — by being so generous with their time, their enthusiasm, their words and thoughts. Now, in my own grown-up life as a writer, I always, without fail, answer every single letter I get from readers, for with such a history, how could I possibly not? But I do know, even with the mostly small amount of mail I receive, that it can be a slog, trying especially after a long day of struggling to work on a book to write more than a measly paragraph or two, trying to hit a note that will, for the reader, feel unique and properly fresh and personal, as well as friendly and appreciative.
This letter, almost more than any other, gave me such a lift. I kept it pressed between the pages of my various diaries for many years and it now sits in a frame in my study. It still, for me, contains everything you could ever want from a reply to a fan letter: a small personal revelation, a respectfully frank response to practical queries, proof that what you sent has been read he singles out three poems by name, oh my God, the thrill of it. And then, most vitally of all, the kind of hope that could and did sustain a Nottingham teenager sitting and typing away in her bedroom, for years.
