With that, there’s no time like the present to begin fulfilling your lifelong dreams of poetic iconoclasm. We strongly believe in following examples of “How It’s Done” from the singular lives of staunch women throughout herstory, so we suggest you do it as our Emily did. Scribble out the beginnings of a masterpiece on a bit of envelope and make sure to remember the little people on your way to the peaks of literary glory. While you’re at it, you should keep in mind the pieces of business stationery will be cherished and preserved forever. So you might as well make sure the envelope is stunning enough to support your linguistic achievements.
