I had a quick question for you. Since running the crapometer for 1st pages, query letters, and synopses, have you run across any of the exact same submissions in "real life", where the person sent something through the crapometer and also to your agency?
If so, were there marked improvements in the quality of the submission after having run through the crapometer?
I've seen several queries at my agency from people who read this blog. Sadly I haven't been able to take any of them on as clients.
I don't know if I've seen before/after; my memory for queries is about 35 seconds.
I do think it would be an interesting study to see if it actually helps people. Perhaps some graduate student needing a thesis will come calling one day.
