In 1985 I was ten years old. I had been playing D&D for about a year or two and I got an electric typewriter for Christmas. (Yes, I'm old. Get over it.)

I typed up a bunch of my homebrew D&D stuff (classes, monsters, magic items, whatever), all of it absolutely terrible and juvenile. And for some reason, I put a bunch of it in an envelope and mailed it to the submissions dept. at TSR. A few weeks later I got a very official looking bundle back in the mail returning my manuscripts to me with a stock "thanks, but these aren't what we are looking for" form letter and a copy of the TSR submission and writing style guidelines.

Included was a very nice handwritten note from Kim Mohan encouraging me to keep writing.

Thanks, Kim!
