People put their energy toward the weirdest things sometimes. Got an angry letter yesterday from a reader saying I’m not doing my job and I basically suck ass because one of our Inbox letters was more than 250 words, the wordcount listed in the rules section. Really? You sat down and wrote me a letter because someone got 20 more words than the alloted amount? 250 is a suggested wordcount … sometimes they are a bit more, sometimes a bit less. It’s no exact science. So relax. Keep writing letters. If it’s way too long, I will ask you to cut it down. But chill. Life is too short to get your blood pressure up over a few extra words.
