Would you say :
I meant to "write you"
I meant to "write to you" ?
(They mean the same thing.)
If you have a direct and an indirect object you can do without 'to':
I'll write him a letter tomorrow.
If there is only one object (indicating the addressee of the action) in the sentence you need 'to':
I'll write to him tomorrow.
Ah, well. We're about to get David L. started, aren't we?
Now excuse me while I drag my hirsute American knuckles out of here. When the coast is clear, write me....
