I dont know if any of you watch the show "OZ" on HBO but after watching that show for the last couple weeks I decided to get online and find a website that would help me find a prison penpal. I went to a lot, but THIS website seems to be the best I've seen so far I found a guy to write to. It's weird though because I do want more then one pen-pal but everyone else I look at I only think of the 1st one. So I wrote him a lonnnng (3.5 pages...) letter. Actually its 3 plus on the back of one page it has all my favorites/likes/dislikes... I didn't know whether or not to write a long letter or short one. I just figured that someone who's in jail for a long time probably wants them as long as they can get... lol and if thats what he wants, I picked the right person.
When I send a letter, does it go right to him or does the facility read it first? If they do, does it still go to him in its original envelope?
its an odd question but i have personalized stationary and he'd know everytime a letter was from me or not.. it would help keep me distinguished from any other PP's.
Also- did any of you have these thoughts when you got your first PP? what kinds of letters t write..how long should they be.. what kinds of things can we send in packages? My PP and I have the same birthday and I'd like to send him something if I can..
