Dear Miss Snark,
I was just wondering how agents would feel receiving a query letter that they recognize as having been critiqued on a site such as Evil Editor. Assuming that you’d remember reading the original (maybe very crappy) query, would this put you off? Would you be curious enough to go read the original from the archives?
well, no, I wouldn't go prowling around to see old versions, I'd just look at what you sent. And I do get query letterss I recognize from the Crapometer. And from people who read this blog. I think it's a total hoot. I always feel REALLY bad when I have to say no to someone I know is regular reader here.
Bottom line: don't worry your evil past will haunt you.
