Elektra!

Your last comment got shuffled into the reject pile by mistake.
Repost, if you can remember it.
It started .."off topic".

Sorry; it popped up just as I was clicking the "rejected" and you got washed out to sea.

It's 83 degress in LA with a gentle breeze off the ocean. Is that off topic enough?

Just discovered your site. Waded through six synopses (without gin!) and had a eureka moment. I NOW KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A LITERARY AGENT! For the first time I completely got it. I also got your deep, dark secret. Underneath that sharp-edged, oh-so snarky exterior lurks--I mean beckons--a teacher and a coach. What a find you are.

Elektra:
I visited your blog and appreciated your comments. I have a question for you. I'm writing to you here because I didn't see a way to email you directly on your blog. Can you recommend any history/reference books that cover the time period of Post-Roman Britain and Scotland that you especially like? The novel I am currently working on is set in the area between Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall, and all those tribes are dizzying! I am collecting information and trying to come up with an accurate picture of that time, especially the Strathclyde area, where I believe the Dumnonii tribes lived. Thanks!

Brady, people have been eviscerated by a stiletto heel for less. Beast

"Mr. Westwater, I don't wear heels, stiletto or otherwise, but I'd be willing to put some on just to help stomp!"

Well, he said I should think of snow as was cool sand...and as I had never seen it snow, except on a calendar...

Miss Snark, are we going to do the synopsis awards at some point? Our voting fingers are nicely warmed up after all those votes that we cast for you over at Preditors and Editors.

fifteen degrees here... wind chill minus eleven... river frozen.... wolves gathering in the darkness... generator starting to sputter... god, I hope the holy water supply holds out...

Actually, impaled would be a better choice than eviscerated.... broken gin bottles are more appropriate for a proper evisceration.

Ack! I think it was this:
In the original version of The Lord of the Rings, Frodo's name was Bingo Sackville-Baggins. If that can change, anything can (and thank dog it did)

"Catch - 18" submitted by Joseph Heller.... editor notes: Leon Uris has just released "Mila - 18" ... New Title "Catch - 22"

Think of Joe's problem, this was way before "Find & Replace."
