I can't stress how important it is for actors to write thank you cards.
They are a great way for actors to market themselves without self-promoting, if done correctly. Snail mailing your headshots is quickly becoming outdated, but saying thank you is always appreciated.
I wrote another thank you yesterday and realized I have bonus tips for you! This is Part 1 0f 4 of my quick tips series.
TYPE BEFORE YOU WRITE
Like most people today, I'm guessing you almost always have your phone with you.
I type out a few lines in my phone or on my computer before I put pen to paper.
This allows me to brainstorm, edit, and organize my thoughts before I start writing.
Then I just transfer what I've written over to the card.
I've saved more thank you cards doing this. It's a bummer to throw away a perfectly good card that cost money because of a written typo.
Typing it on my phone also allows me to do it on-the-go so that the actual card writing process seems less daunting when the time comes. The hard part is already done.
Who should you write a card to right now? Type up a draft in your phone. It doesn't need to be perfect. No one is going to see it yet! You'll have time to edit it. Be sure to read Part 2 of 4 to make sure your card is easy to read.
