The Short Fuse Guide to Emoticons
Literary Agent Gordon Warnock walks you through creating and using emoticons, which, let’s face it, was most of our internet and cell phone communication before we had cat photos.
Please note that this is not a publishing guide, and it in all likelihood will not help you get a book deal. It is, however, ideal for playing spy with your friends, attempting to understand your teenagers (unsuccessfully), communicating with a parent who just learned to text (Mom, if you’re reading this, kitty, butterfly, heart, happy face), or if you’re particularly adventurous, LARPing in a world set in 1993.
