    If so, i think organization is key. Usually, if you are writing a reply, and they have asked several questions in the previous letter sent to you, than you would answer those either first in the letter, or last. It makes it easier for them to understand. For example: "" Dear Bob, How're you it was so nice to get your letter blah blah blah. I've been okay (since he asked how you were doing). I;'ve been a little busy with work blah blah blah. Grandma's doing great! (since he asked about grandma) She's gotten over her cold and now we go for walks in the park every so often blah blah blah. "" So you see, you answer their quesions first and then you go into asking them questions or whatever. continued: ""I heard you broke your arm! is it getting better? i remember when katy broke her arm blah blha blha she hated it because she couldn't play piano blah blhablha. How is it trying to cope with not being able to play tennis? i've gotten into running lately, maybe you should try it! blah blah blah" You see? You could either do the asking in the beginning or at the end. It makes the letter easier to read and understand since the reader doesn't have the letter they send right next to him/her (like an email). So yes, organization is key. Also, if it is to a friend or relative, I would encourage not writing drafts. It takes out the realness and the 'voice' in your words. But if the letter is sent for a more professional reason, then drafts are encouraged. Always watch the spelling and the grammer, as usual. I think I covered mostly all of it? Oh, and NEVER forget to say goodbye and address your name. If it's a person you don't know that well or if you want to sound more professional and less affectionate: "Sincerely, David" And if it's so someone you love more and miss and all that mushy gushy stuff: "With much love, David" Yeah, I think you've get it :D I think i covered it all. If you need anything else, feel free to ask:)
