This. OMFG, THIS. (Or, I think I'm in love.)

If you are a writer -- successful or not; good, bad, terrible, or worse; frustrated or confused -- you need this. 

 

If you are a reader still SYDH over the latest horrible excuse for a book you spent time and/or money on, you need this.

 

If you are a reviewer still screaming over the latest rant from a precious snowflake whose book got a negative review, YOU NEED THIS.
