Words Of Wisdom From An Autograph Collector
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As a teenager, I collected celebrity autographs. I read popular teen magazines, such as Bop and Seventeen. As I read, I looked for addresses where I could contact celebrities that I admired. When I found an address of a singer, actor, or actress that I liked, I copied it down. I then sat down and wrote the celebrity a fan letter. In the letter, I mentioned my name, my age, and some of my hobbies, and I asked the person to please send me an autographed picture. I then signed the letter, put it in an envelope, addressed and sealed the envelope, put a stamp on it, and dropped it in the mail. Then I waited.

It took time, patience, and often several letters, but I did manage to get a few autographed photos for my efforts. Whenever a photo arrived in the mail, I was always so excited. I opened the envelope with trembling hands, carefully pulled out the photo, and admired the picture and signature. Then I put the photo away in my scrapbook where it would not be damaged. In the excitement of finally getting what I had wanted for so long, it never dawned on me that the signature I was so proud of might not be a real signature after all.

Now that I am older, I understand that celebrities have busy lives. Singers spend many hours in the recording studio, for example, working on music for their upcoming album. Then, when they are about to go on tour, they spend time rehearsing their songs. They do not want to forget the lyrics, embarrass themselves, and disappoint their fans, who expect to see and hear a good show. Because they are so busy, they might not have time to sit down and personally autograph a photo for a devoted fan. Therefore, they might stamp their signature onto the photo, or they might have someone else sign it. They can then continue their work.

Like singers, actors are also very busy. They must memorize their lines, and they spend a great deal of time rehearsing scenes in order to get them exactly right.

If I ever become famous, I hope to have fans write me fan letters. I would love to have people from all over the world who admired my work. If my fans wanted autographed pictures, I would be happy to sign pictures for everyone who requested one. I would then mail them, and my fans would get to experience the same happiness and excitement that I experienced.
