Miss Snark is reading novels. Unpublished novels of course; Miss Snark is reading the "yes I'll read your novel, send it along" submission stack.
I'm reading Novel Q for the second time. When I read it the first time, I thought the author had a pretty good book up till page 200 and then it fell apart like he'd lost not only his focus but his will to live. Miss Snark wrote him a two page letter with comments.
Back comes the revised version. I'm is reading merrily along, slowly realizing this thing doesn't hold up well in a second reading. And then, here it is. The exact same stuff that made me crazy the first time. Exactly.
Here's a big fat clue: if you think an agent's comments are not in line with your vision of the book or you don't intend to revise with those comments in mind...DON'T SEND IT AGAIN.
Find someone who agrees with your vision, since you clearly think the comments are off base.
This nitwit got two pages of comments before.
This time it's the form letter.
Singed at the edges.
