I love getting mail and in this day and age the opportunities for that are more limited. But today I got TWO things in the mail just for me. First are some business cards I ordered from Moo. Now that I need to hunt down freelance business I figured it was time to invest in some real business cards. At first I thought about going the cheapie route with VistaPrint, but I’m glad I spent the extra money to get higher quality cards. The picture can give you an idea of how cool they look, but it doesn’t show how cool they feel. These things are thick and substantial. I love them so much. I wavered on whether or not to add the photo, but I figured if I drop some off around the tables at a conference, then people can use my photo to seek me out. We’ll see if it works or if it turns out to be creepy.
The other item was a Scriptnotes t-shirt from the John August webstore. I love this podcast 1) because they do transcripts and I hate listening to podcasts and 2) there is so much great information for writers of all stripes, not just screenwriters. This is the siftest t-shirt I’ve ever owned and it’s the first one I didn’t feel like I had to wash before wearing.
So that’s what today’s mail brought. Next week I hope to get a few actual checks in the mail which is still fun even though I infinitely prefer PayPal.
