    Default write sy or write to sy

    Hi,

    Is there a differeence between the following sentences?

    Write me soon.
    Write to me soon.

    Are they both correct? If yes, can we use nouns instead of personal pronouns in both ways?

    Thanks,
    baraka

    Write me soon is a very common construction in AE, but is never used in BE.
