I'm not sure when my obsession with stringing words together took root. Maybe it was that first trip to the library when I was 4. Maybe it was that unit on sentence diagramming in the eighth grade. I remember both vividly and fondly.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of writing in first person?
@Ralph I've seen this, too, and it can be done well for sure. It niggles at me somewhat, but that's probably just because I'm seeing it as a writer. I doubt the majority of readers are at all bothered by that format.

comment Asking for exam results
I would think people you don't know well would be the very ones not to call "dear." ;) Seriously, though, I think a courtesy title (Mr/Ms/Prof/Dr) should be fine, although it shouldn't hurt to use "dear" if you're in doubt.
