I accidently did something today that was extremely efficient.

When I wrote my letter to the ministers of my province, I used microsoft word and had saved it.

I was going to start an e-mail letter to my MLA today (from scratch) and I looked at my saved letter to the ministers. Then I thought, DUH!! use the same letter! So I used my "cut/copy/paste" on my tool bar to copy the letter to my e-mail. Then I added some points that were specific to my MLA, changed the name and POOF, a professional looking three page formal letter style e-mail to my MLA. I added some links to sabrinas law, and anaphylaxis canada and I was done in 15 minutes.

The bulk of the letter is the same for ministers, MLAs and school boards, so if you use the bulk of the same letter and add the specific stuff you save a lot of time and are more likely to write to all the people you would like to if you are not writing a new letter from scratch each time.

I do that all the time for cover letters for job interviews. Saves a lot of time.
