Dear Miss Snark,
inspired by your very useful advice and the trusty Crapometer I set about reducing my hitherto 3752 word synopsis to a readable 998 words. And then I set about the task of contacting targeted NY agents (via e-mail as I'm based in Spain). It appears a goodly proportion of NY agents want 250 word synopses. So, my question is thus, is there any chance in the future you'll be running a 250 word Crapometer?
From Spain yet.
There, lolling on sunny beaches, being served margaritas by smiling senoritas, this cruel cruel man asks about the Crapometer.
Miss Snark, looking out at 39degrees and the forecast of snow, while the office next door is remodeled (think: sound of jackhammers), and thinks...ya bub, you do the crapomter, I'll go to Spain.
After I regain my composure, the answer is a resounding maybe.
At this point the idea of doing anything with the crapometer again makes me run screaming into the night...ok, that's not unusual here, but still, you get the point.
