I did write a cover letter. After struggling for a couple of days trying to "punch up my prose," so that it was both concise and informative, I read a website that suggested using bullet points. That helped me pare down the writing, making it more active and immediate. Also, I thought it gave a nice, clean, look to the letter.
I hope the people at the Foundation like the letter and resume: when I read the job description, I said (out loud, even), "They could have written this position for me." I am unhappy with myself that it took me three days to send it off.
But send it off I did. So now I can go to trivia tonight with a clean conscience and a light(er) heart. My brain? The jury is still out on that.
It's getting better, though.
