Dearest Great Wizard of All That Is Snark:
Although, like many ladies, I work full time out of the house, and surely to God (it feels like) full time in the house, and must also tend my pesky muse who refuses to give up on my perhaps unfortunate dream of publication, still I don't have hundreds......thousands........millions.............of hopeful writers hanging onto my every keystroke and flooding my office with queries, partials and fulls. Yes, I realize that even in the day of the great Snark, there are only 24 hours.
But.........there had to be a but............it would be grand if there were a way for your faithful snarklings to run STORY IDEAS by you. That could save us from the fate of having agents reject the manuscripts pulled from long months of effort because it has been "done to death." In essence, you hold the power to stop the train wreck before it happens.
I know that folks always worry about the theft of "their" great and glorious concept, but in the balance of things, if you were willing to consider ideas, it would surely be not only a real life miracle for all the snarklings in the land, but surely some of the agents and editors who begin to see better concepts will laud your greatness with gin, diamonds, or cash.
Is there any way you could make a bit of room on your already crowded plate for this?
Sadly, when someone says "done to death" it means NOT that the plot is hackneyed but that you haven't done something fresh and new with your work.
There are only seven ideas in the world, as the old rubric goes.
It's the execution that counts.
Thus you, and Miss Snark, must beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
