Dear Ms. Snark-- (no, it's not Ms. Snark)
This may seem very trite and obviously nit-picky, but what are writers if not anal? (dead)
What do you think about writers who use letterhead? In all the manuscript formatting books I have, they have the standard what-you-learned-in-high-school format for business letters, which is good, I realize. However, would it be in poor taste and/or mark me as an amateur to say, include a small, professional looking outline of a cat in the letterhead of a novel about a cat. Not something my third grade cousin would use, but something that looks decent.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, even a shot to the head with a clue gun. (especially that--so much better to be riddled by the clue gun than to walk around clue-less!)
It doesn't matter at all.
Even if you have a cat.
Not even if you have a dog.
Only if you have a photo of Mr. Clooney holding up his phone number like a jail house booking ID will I even notice.
Obsess about your writing.
