Have any of you ever wrote a thank you letter that was short, sweet and to the point, "thanks for meeting with me on xxxx for x position. I look forward to hearing from you i n the near future....?" According to my hubby, the first President Bush was famous for his very short, handwritten notes to heads of state that were no more than 3-5 sentences long and very brief. My husband tells me that most people loved it.... He thinks I am coo-coo for stressing so much over this. I don't know about anyone else, but hey that man already had a job! I don't. Nowhere in that brief note is there a horn tooting that the "pro's" say you should write. Writing for me , even letters, is pure torture!:help: I agonize over every single grammatical part, having the "right" words, and not repeating certain words/phrases over an over... and it ends up taking me hours to polish one that is good enough in my own mind to send.(oh yes, I DO have alot of interview technique books and have researched this stuff repeatedly.... but still - writing letters are torture for me. I ask people in my family, and some friends to edit the stuff for me, so I don't screw up and send a superintendent of a school district a poorly composed, full of grammatical or spelling error disaster of a letter. I am, after all, asking to teach potentially hundreds of children in that school district, and if I can't compose a well written letter as a " professional educator" why in heavens would I be asking to teach??? Am I "nutzo" to think this way? or just paranoid and I should get over it and just not agonize over a silly letter and "get her done"????
