When I went on to Tweet my opinion(s), I found there were already many known and unknown (to me) writers, who had some of the most amazing and witty 140 characters published online. This is what I vented. These are what others had to say: #TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter “It must be nice making money at a hobby.” — Melodie Ramone (@Melodie_Ramone) “I’m sure writing it won’t take longer than 30 minutes.”#TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter — Mina V. Esguerra (@minavesguerra)  Amish Tripathi ‏@authoramish  Are you a writer? I hope your spouse earns well. #TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter sarahdessen ‏@sarahdessen  Told a teen I write YA.
