Remember when you could make your email look like stationery (hideous stationery, but still) with backgrounds like notebook paper, snowflakes, and blue clouds? Maybe it’s still available, I don’t know – is it? I guess I can see using it for a party invite or something like that, but did anyone ever use it for business emails? Can you imagine?
I confess, I thought about using it for oh, five seconds, but then what if it accidentally went out to an agent or an editor or another author I wanted to take me seriously? Nope, too big a risk, so I nixed it altogether.
Tell the truth – did you ever use those stationery backgrounds? We’re all friends. We can laugh together. ;o)
