The correspondence between Anna, a publisher, and Edward, a writer.
Dear  Anna, 

  I  am  glad  you  found  my  plot  intriguing.  It  would  pain  me  greatly  to  know  that  I  have  a  lackluster  plot  to  go  with  my  “weak”  Christine  as you so eloquently pointed out. A few things if I may:

1.           I  am not "ignoring" your crits.  I  am  merely  taking  them  under  advisement.

2.          I  can  assure  you  that  there  is  no  smugness  on  my  part  here  in  what  is  considered  to  be  a  re-buff  in  your  well-meaning  helpfulness.

  Please  understand  Anna  that  I  have  written  my  story  like  this  for  a  reason.  It  is  not  to  infuriate  you  beyond  measure.  It  is  to  entice  you  to  look  beyond  what  you  see  on  the  page.  For  now  we  will  let  Christine  be  simple.  Her  purpose  has  yet  to  be  defined  so  early  in  the  story.  Trust  me,  my  love  for  the  written  word  has  not  failed.

  And  if  I  could  impart  one  more  piece  of  advice:

You  will catch  more  cooperation  with  sweet praise  than a  shrew’s  tongue.
