    waiting forward

    I've been told that using " waiting forward to hearing from you" to end a letter sounds strange. I probably just started using this two words by mistake... many years ago. Is it really an error?
    Which would be the best way to wish a prompt reply?
    Thanks, Loretta

    Re: waiting forward

    Yes - the usual phrase would be "[I am] looking forward to hearing from you".

    If you want to emphasise that you look for a quick reply, you could say "I hope to hear from you very soon", or "I look forward to hearing from you very soon".
