Emoticoning but with letters.

From Pitch to Publication: Everything You Need to Know to Get Your Novel Published - Carole Blake After we got past the really embarrassing 'I would rather slit my wrists than write fiction' and one count of pens, pencils and the like being called 'stationary', actually a very comprehensive guide to being a writer.

(I wonder if she would be as forgiving of my own work? Hee hee!)

Equal parts inspiring, sobering and informative.
