Richelle Mead
“I sent a quick text to Adrian: I have a hickey! You can’t ever kiss me again. I honestly hadn’t expected him to be awake this early, so I was surprised to get a response: Okay. I won’t kiss you on your neck again.

So typical of him. No! You can’t ever kiss me ANYWHERE. You said you were going to keep your distance.

I’m trying, he wrote back. But you won’t keep your distance from me.

I didn’t dignify that with a response.”
Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell

Tammara Webber
“Lucas: I wanted to talk to you after class, but you disappeared.

Me: I have another class right after. One of those profs who stops talking, stares at you and waits until you get to your seat if you're late.

Lucas: I would probably just walk to my seat even slower. ;)”
Tammara Webber, Easy

Ellen DeGeneres
“What’s not so great is that all this technology is destroying our social skills. Not only have we given up on writing letters to each other, we barely even talk to each other. People have become so accustomed to texting that they’re actually startled when the phone rings. It’s like we suddenly all have Batphones. If it rings, there must be danger.

Now we answer, “What happened? Is someone tied up in the old sawmill?”

“No, it’s Becky. I just called to say hi.”

“Well you scared me half to death. You can’t just pick up the phone and try to talk to me like that. Don’t the tips of your fingers work?”
Ellen DeGeneres, Seriously... I'm Kidding

Cat Patrick
“The boy in the closet is your boyfriend. He loves you and will tell you all about last night.”
Cat Patrick, Forgotten

Jennifer L. Armentrout

Jennifer L. Armentrout, Wait for You

Jennifer L. Armentrout
What r u doing now?

Robin Sloan

Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

2. I had three. Hope that's OK. Dad x

3. I'm just going to have one more. Dad x

4. Harriet, your Dad's made himself sick on an entire multipack of Mars Bars again. Please don't leave sweets where we can find them. A x”
Holly Smale, Model Misfit

“Nothing stings quite like an unanswered text message.”
Paula Stokes, The Art of Lainey

Mark A. Rayner, The Fridgularity

“Was that semi-colon some kind of flirty wink or just bad punctuation?”
Azadeh Aalai

Arden Aoide
“...what do you want to know?
Usual stuff. Serious relationships, age, whether you eat babies. :-D

I’m 30. I think babies are tasty, but empty calories, and I’ve had one long-term serious relationship...”
Arden Aoide, Club Dishabille

Brian Christian
“The more helpful our phones get, the harder it is to be ourselves. For everyone out there fighting to write idiosyncratic, high-entropy, unpredictable, unruly text, swimming upstream of spell-check and predictive auto-completion: Don't let them banalize you. Keep fighting.”
Brian Christian, The Most Human Human: What Talking with Computers Teaches Us About What It Means to Be Alive

Abigail Roux
“What's proper workplace etiquette for picking up computer and tossing out window? Open window first or break glass?”
Abigail Roux, Divide & Conquer

Harriet Evans
“WHY did she do this? She was a terrible drunk texter. All the things she wanted to say to people during the day came out at night, like a vampire.”
Harriet Evans, Happily Ever After

Caroline Kepnes
“And then it happens, the most dreaded response in the world, more terse than any word, more withholding than a "no," and strictly verboten for someone as in love with language and me as you claim to be.

You: "K”
Caroline Kepnes, You

Shannon L. Alder
“Never presume to know a person based on the one dimensional window of the internet. A soul can’t be defined by critics, enemies or broken ties with family or friends. Neither can it be explained by posts or blogs that lack facial expressions, tone or insight into the person’s personality and intent. Until people “get that”, we will forever be a society that thinks Beautiful Mind was a spy movie and every stranger is really a friend on Facebook.”
Shannon L. Alder

Jarod Kintz
“She wanted to know if I loved her, so I texted her a picture of a dead bird.”
Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. Specifically ages 18-81.

David Levithan
“As soon as Neil is out of the shower, he texts Peter.

You up? he asks.

And the reply comes instantly:
For anything.”
David Levithan, Two Boys Kissing

“The very definition of what it means to be alone has changed. To be physically alone is still relatively easy, but many of us struggle daily to turn off e-mail, computers, or cell phones... Our students...find requests not to text during these activities strange, annoying, and downright silly.”
José Antonio Bowen, Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning

“Contradictions, in any communication, are the first stepping stones of mistrust”
Paul Babicki

Rebecca McNutt
“Alford, Massachusetts: Mandy stood there with her old Nikon film camera, snapping photo after photo of the rural landscape. It was difficult to describe the wonderful feeling of there not being a single cell phone in sight; the only modern technology around was the faint blue glow of a cathode ray tube television in the window of a nearby house, and a few cars and trucks parked in crumbling gravel driveways. She was allowed to see this place, one that would likely be ruined by the 21st century as time went on… places like these were extremely hard to find these days. A world of wood-burning cookstoves and the waxy smell of Paraffin, laundry hung out to dry, rusty steel bridges over streams that reflected the bright blue skies, apple pies left out on windowsills… a world of hard work with very little to show for it aside from the sunlight beaming down on a proud community. And Mandy wanted to trap it all in her Kodak film rolls and rescue it from the future.”
Rebecca McNutt, Smog City

Chila Woychik
“Texting is a sex toy: pleasurable but a substitute for the real thing. Love has a face. Video chatting is good, but who’s comfortable enough to share their “bed hair”? Love isn’t about pat answers.”
Chila Woychik, On Being a Rat and Other Observations

Natalie D. Richards
“My phone buzzes and I fish it from my pocket, expecting Tacey or maybe my parents checking in to make sure I’m okay. But it’s an unfamiliar number.
Do you blame yourself?
I read the words once. Twice. I see Stella’s locker door swinging open and I hear a train whistle, but neither are happening. It’s all in my head. I force myself to take a breath and head outside. This text is a wrong number. It’s not for me, and it’s definitely not about Stella.
And then another message.
Do you wish you’d done something? What if you still could?
I text back quickly.
I think you have the wrong number.
I don’t have the wrong number, Piper.”
Natalie D. Richards, Gone Too Far

“Ms Chalmers,” he warned.

Helen Fielding
“Clearly in textbook terms, the gentleman should text the lady first after intercourse, but perhaps the whole socio-etiquettical system breaks down when an insect plague is involved.”
Helen Fielding, Mad About the Boy

David Chiles
“It is proper ‪Netiquette‬ to learn to use autocorrect properly when ‪‎texting‬ or turn it off. NetworkEtiquette.Net”
David Chiles

Frank Warren
“Sometimes I text the "wrong" person ... on purpose. Just to start a conversation.”
Frank Warren

Aimee Bender
“She looked over my shoulder once while I was texting, which was already annoying, and when I wrote lol she made a very clear point to me about how I was silent and not laughing out loud, not at all. I said it was just an expression, and that I was laughing out loud inside my own mind.”
Aimee Bender, The Color Master: Stories

Rebecca McNutt
“How promising today's generation is. They can whip out their cellular phones like sheep, instantly take a million digital photos of their cat and then just delete them. But I'd like to see these kids try to artfully use a traditional film camera or make a super 8 home movie. Traditional film takes integrity, nostalgia, effort, patience and imagination - things that the 21st century has very little of. Everything these days, even a superior medium like film photography with an extensively vivid history and an iconic meaning, is becoming disposable in this age.”
Rebecca McNutt
