Oh ow...that hurt....right

"Synopsis they are" is ungrammatical. If you mean the plural of "synopsis" here---as your verb "are" indicates---it's spelled "synopses".I'm just politely ignoring "Miss Snarks rules" because I know that some people who can't figure out where to use apostrophes pretend to crusade against them. Question for a future post: How do people who can't write English get to be agents? Oh wait. You're not an agent. You work in...what? Agriculture? Ah, of course. Shovelling sh**, no doubt.;)DTG Pussy Talk

ooookay.
So I clicked on the site to see who was up in arms about Miss Snark (joining a long list of the disgruntled).

Well, like I said earlier. Sex scenes are very hard to write well. Very hard.

But the author's got the cover of Jean Rhys' "After Leaving Mr. Meckinzie" as their profile photo. That's got to count for something? no?

Yikes ...

Stilettos are a subtle weapon of grace.

If nothing else I'm sure she got a spike in visits. I never bought into "even bad publicity is publicity" but I'm sure I'm in the minority on that count.

Kelly said...

Dang. I really wanna click that link, but I have a feeling it is - as they say on Fark - not safe for work. Maybe later.

But really. This is a blog, not literature. I smell sour grapes.

OMG!!!Coffee...I expelled coffee through my nose, all over my screen (this will take an hour to clean up---I say as I type on wet keys!)

Ewwwwww!!Put a warning label up there!!! Sheesh...silly me, after starting Animal Escapades, I thought it was talking about a cat!

Bernita said...

Hmmm. I thought it was a talking dog, mesel'...

David Isaak said...

I like sex scenes when well-written, and think that making them involving and original is one of the greatest challenges a writer faces.

Having clicked on the link, I now know where writers are sent when they fail. My vocabulary fails me, and all I can come up with is: Gack.

Synesthesia said...

Eww. Please, give us a little warning next time. I had some the most disgusting visuals I've ever had.

Debra Hamel said...

Nice clean layout, at least.

Synesthesia said...

No, not even the layout is good. The two shades of beige clash. From a web-designer's perspective, it's appalling.

Bonnie Calhoun said...

I like David's "gack" all I could think of was having a hairball caught in my throat.....don't ask! :-)

Bridget Medora said...

Synesthesia -- I'm curious, do you have synesthesia?

harridan said...

Miss Snark,

UMMMMMMM, thanks for sharing that link......

And trust me that is NOT an umm of pleasure. Gosh, give a girl a warning or something. LOL

Reading that reminded me of those little penthouse style quickies that used to be put out long ago. (Okay, yes I once read stuff like that cuz my mom was so "Sex is horrid" type thing. I thought it horribly decadent to read such things. Though I found my mom's old Coffee, tea or me, book in her dresser LOL)

This writer is writing and blogging for her sub and dom friends. Her market for the badly written sex scene is limited.

Maybe now I can recommend Anne Rices Beauty series to someone. This blogger would learn at least how to write hot without sounding like a thirteen-year-old boy getting his first chubby.

Oh man, I am slinking into the corner now. Bad Harridan, bad harridan.

harridan said...

Oh gosh, and I'm not promoting Anne Rice's Beauty thing. It was referencing a comment to Bonnie I made on this same board a bit ago.

Sigh,

I've decided never ever post when you are full of Nyquil!

Shadow said...

Know what the main ingredient of Nyquil is? Alcohol (it's 50 proof.) Swill some gin; it'll work just as well and taste a hell of a lot better. But I agree that not posting while on it is a good idea.

Bonnie Calhoun said...

Poor harridan....don't keyboards come with a warning label, "Don't drink and type. It could be hazardous to your thinking." LOL

I half remember what we were talking about, now I have to go find it!

Bethany said...

First of all, dinging someone for something they wrote online? Please. Nobody proofreads anything they write online, and as long as people online dont right lyk thiz I'm fine, which Miss Snark most CERTAINLY does not. Trying to get someone on internet grammar or punctuation or whatever is just grasping at minor flaws that mean nothing.

And I looked at that journal, which brings me to my "second of all." I know they say that if you can't do, teach, so I guess this person kind of took that to heart. After all, if you can't write, criticize. Moronically. ^_^

Bonnie Calhoun said...

Hey harridan, on second thought, I don't think it was the Nyquil. I think your eyeballs just got scorched over there. Tehe :-)

DTG said...

So this is where the spike in my hits came from. Thanks, Miss Snark! MWAH!!

Bonnie Calhoun said...

Sheesh, I'll even take Bookner over this! Yikes...I need a drink...coffee:-(

DTG said...

May I have the last word? No, I thought not. Anyway, see my Pussy Talk update:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/nicebluejournal/101372.html

Warning: PUSSY TALK IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Not only is there a word in the title that could be construed as nasty, there is a teeny picture (a painting by a famous painter named Modigliani, although it's clear snarklings haven't a clue who he was---Jean Rhys, indeed! sheesh) of a woman with no clothes on.

Read if you dare. And *poof!* I'm off, to bother you no more. Be well.

PS. It's all about spikes and hits, isn't it?

Freddy said...

So you see a link to something called Pussy Talk and you're shocked when it leads to a site which discusses sexual issues?
Please!
Oh and don't follow my link if DTG offended you.
