Start of a letter: "I hope you are fine."

Hi

I am terribly fed- up with writing the same run-down-the-mill sentences at the start of an informal letter,i.e. How are you?, I hope you are fine etc.

Could you please give me a few ‘innovative’ sentences to start an informal letter with? Something short and interesting please!

Sup’, dude?

A few other informal greetings (US):

Howdy.
Hey.

How’s it going?
What’s shaking?
What’s happening?
Howyadoin? (How are you doing?)

So, now that we have assorted greeting alternatives out of the way, I’d like you to look at these Google results. 8)

Hi Tom,

Just a point about something you wrote:

To me this should be run-of-the-mill

Alan

(I’m not sure I’d ever use any of these myself, though!)

Many, many thanks to all of you! :smiley:

Dear Alan
