The reason fandom gets unpleasant is that some people let their love of a thing define them. Then criticism of that thing becomes criticism of them. Love things. Enjoy things. But try not to make it your entire identity. It can be a part of you, but it shouldn’t be all of you.— Daanish Syed (@_DaanishSyed) December 22, 2019

There's no *nice* way to force people to endure those who would do them harm.— N. K. Jemisin (@nkjemisin) December 26, 2019

I make about 17 cents on 99 cent ebooks and 34 cents on 1.99 ebooks. Just saying - this is why most authors aren't rich unless they sell huge numbers.— Kameron Hurley (@KameronHurley) December 13, 2019

I wish I could be motivated to care about who receives the sinecure of directing our local Startup Kabuki Theater.— Jay Garmon (@jaygarmon) December 3, 2019

Call me old-fashioned, but I’m of the mind that titles like “thought leader,” “guru,” or “expert,” should be bestowed on you by others. The act of claiming them for yourself undermines the appellation.— Myke Cole (@MykeCole) December 3, 2019

When I became a teenager, I thought the "adult drink" was beer.
As an adult, I've realised the "adult drink" is in fact... water.
I still think about this and laugh, every single day. https://t.co/4owdnOtNiS— Nicole Cliffe (@Nicole_Cliffe) December 1, 2019
