Fun quote.

‘Plot highly improbable. Characterization exaggerated. Conversation unnatural. A good deal of humour but not always in the best of taste. Tell her to keep on trying, and in time she may produce a real book.’

– Daddy Long Legs, Jean Webster

This book was a favorite of mine growing up.  I recently reread it and had a giggle at the above passage.  The protagonist is, among other things, a struggling novelist.  This is from one of her rejection letters.  I live in continual hope that I too, will one day produce a real book.
