Many of you (more than 100) got a form email saying your question was deleted. I'm real sorry I had to do it; it's not a comment on your question but more on my lack of time.
As the blog readership increased, the mail and comment volume quadrupled...in two months. What was just a an hour or two was almost six today. That can't continue.
I'll be answering almost no questions posted to the comment trail. I won't even automatically see them anymore.
I will try to answer questions emailed to me. It will be VERY helpful if you're new to the blog if you search the archives first. Google can help. Enter "miss Snark" and the topic, like "writers conferences" and you'll be surprised what pops up.
We need an index, and I'm working on it but it's not coming any time soon.
Meanwhile, I'm taking a short break to catch up on the real work.
Thanks for your patience. I'm glad to have this many readers, commenters, and convivial keyboard killers on the other side of the screen.
Back on Monday!
