Hello, Friends! We’re doing a new feature here at Cuddlebuggery showcasing our favorite literary (authors, bloggers, readers, general bookish community) tweets of the week. This week will be a bit short, but hopefully full of goodness.
It’s always fun when authors take the time to reach out on Twitter…
Hello new followers! You have made a terrible mistake. Run while you can.

Proofreading is important:

Constructive criticism is ALSO important:
Third, hey, fuck you, I'll watch what I want. I'll watch two squirrels making love. And I'll review it on Yelp, motherfucker.

(that’s okay, Meg, we love you anyway!)
And let’s not forget some of the great tweets in the Tor mess (and if you’re wondering what that is, we will cover it in Buzz on Monday!):
Overconfidence? Hypersensitivity? Venomous jealousy? Congratulations! You're a toddler. Or a writer. Either one.

But for now, we leave you with the thought of the week:
Greatness is opposite of perfectionism. To achieve greatness at anything, you have to suck at other things. You have to let things go.

And the picture of the week. (yum!)
